Pearl Jam will play in 14 cities in the United States and Canada and will be at Bridgestone Arena on April 2. The rockers' eleventh studio album will be out March 27 on the band's Monkeywrench Records and Republic Records.

In May 2018 bassist Jeff Ament revealed that the band were working on ideas for a new album, telling radio station WNCR, "We've been telling ourselves that we weren't going to put a ton of pressure on the situation".

The band have also confirmed plans for a North American/European tour beginning in Toronto on March 18, just over a week before the record's release.

"Making this record was a long journey", says guitarist Mike McCready.

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.

March 28 - Baltimore, Md.
