Pearl Jam to play one-off UK date

The Seattle five-piece will be back in the summer

Pearl Jam have announced plans to play a one off date in the UK this summer.

The Seattle five-piece are due to appear at Wembley Arena on June 18.

The gig will be the band’s first since they performed at the Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals last year.

The band are also due to perform a series of European dates plus seven festivals.

Pearl Jam have shied away from playing festivals in recent years after nine people were killed in the crowd at the Roskilde Festival in 2000.

Tickets will only be made available through their official website www.sonymusic.com/artists/PearlJam/at this stage.

Further ticket details will be announced soon.
