Eddie Vedder announces eight-city solo trek
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has announced a short tour of the US, kicking off August 1 in Boston, MA.

The singer has been touring in support of his album ‘Into The Wild’ which he recorded as the soundtrack to the movie of the same name, directed by Sean Penn.

The soundtrack earned Vedder a Golden Globe earlier this year for the song ‘Guaranteed’.

Meanwhile, a private performance by Pearl Jam in New York last week made $3 million for charity. The band performed at the 2,800 capacity Beacon Theatre to raise money for the Robin Hood Foundation, which aims to alleviate poverty. Some tickets for the show cost as much as $2,250.

Eddie Vedder’s solo dates are:

Boston, MA Opera House (August 1)
New York, NY United Palace Theatre (4, 5)
Newark, NJ New Jersey Performing Arts Center (7)
Montreal, Quebec Salle Wilfrid Place (9, 10)
Toronto, Ontario Massey Hall (12, 13)
Washington, DC Warner Theatre (16, 17)
Milwaukee, WI Riverside Theatre (19)
Chicago, IL Auditorium Theatre (21, 22)
