Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder announces UK and Ireland solo tour

The grunge icon will be joined by Glen Hansard

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has announced details of a UK and Ireland solo tour. See full dates and ticket details below.

The grunge icon is set to head out on a run of European festival and headline dates, where he’ll be supported by his longtime friend, ‘Once’ star and Frames frontman Glen Hansard.

This follows Vedder’s solo appearance where he delivered an emotional performance at Barack Obama’s farewell address, before handing over the US Presidency to Donald Trump.

Fans are now speculating as to whether more solo material might follow, after releasing debut ‘Into The Wild’ in 2007, and ‘Ukulele Songs’ in 2011.

Tue June 06 2017 – LONDON Eventim Apollo

Meanwhile, next month will see Pearl Jam inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame by Neil Young.

Set to take place on April 7 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, the Cleveland, Ohio institution announced a handful of its presenters and Young topped the bill.

Joining Young will be Jackson Browne and Rush members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, who will introduce folk legend Joan Baez and progressive rock band Yes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tupac Shakur, Electric Light Orchestra and Journey will also be inducted.
