Pearl Jam perform at Fenway Park on September 4, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.


"Gigatonis available for pre-order now at www.pearljam.com. Collaborating with my bandmates on "Gigaton" ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times".

"For fans who are unable to use their tickets, Pearl Jam and Ticketmaster will offer North America's first Fan-to-Fan Face Value Ticket Exchange, which will allow fans to resell their tickets for the price they paid (including all fees)". The first single off the album, "Dance of the Clairvoyants", will be released in the coming weeks. January 23, at 10 a.m. (ET).

For each ticket sold, $5 will go to the nonprofit Vitalogy Foundation, Pearl Jam's foundation supporting community health, the environment, arts, education and social change.

A "Verified Fan" presale for the tour dates goes on sale January 23 through Ticketmaster, and a general sale for remaining tickets happens January 24.
