Full details of the first British date in six years revealed
Pearl Jam are to play their first UK show in six years next month.
The band, whose self-titled new album is out on May 1, play a ‘club’ gig at the Astoria on April 20. Tickets go on sale on March 31 and are limited to two per person.
For ticket availability go to NME.COM/Gigs.
The last time the band played in Britain was in 2000, when they did two sold-out nights at London Wembley Arena.
The new album marks is the band’s first studio release since 2002’s ‘Riot Act’.
Asked about the record, the band commented: “We’ve got all the instruments going full force, yet coexisting. It’s like we took our aggressions and shaped something positive from them in a very direct manner. Though we’d qualify most of the record as hard-driving, the two quiet ones (‘Parachutes’ and ‘Come Back’) could be our best attempts yet at pulling the disguises off of loss of life, and even love.”
