The trek kicks off in May
Pearl Jam have finally confirmed their rescheduled North American tour dates from 2020. The first leg begins on May 3 at the Viejas Arena in San Diego, CA and wraps up on May 20 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. After a brief European excursion, the band will return to Canada and the U.S. for the second leg beginning on September 1 at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City, QC.
The updated routing includes four additional concert dates in Fresno, Sacramento, Las Vegas, and Camden.
Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer’s solo project, Pluralone, will open for Pearl Jam on this tour. Klinghoffer will also join Pearl Jam as a touring member on these dates. He recently performed with Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder on his solo tour.

Pearl Jam released their eleventh studio album Gigaton last May. It was the group’s first all-new studio outing in seven years. The critically-acclaimed album hit No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock and Alternative album charts. The band will finally get to support he album on tour next year.
As previously announced, Pearl Jam’s 2020 European Tour dates are rescheduled for June and July of 2022. Visit PearlJam.com for full tour routing and any updates.
In continuing their ongoing commitment to acknowledge and address the band’s carbon footprint, Pearl Jam will be paying $200 per ton for carbon dioxide mitigation from the Gigaton tour, a ten-fold increase from prior years. This pricing allows the band to pursue a multi-layered strategy of offsets and investments that combined, will allow for a more comprehensive mitigation plan.
“We are proud of our prior efforts to mitigate our inevitable carbon footprint from touring over the past 20 years but the time to multiply that effort is clearly right now,” Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard explains. “By committing to this aggressive pricing, we hope to equally amplify our efforts and gather partners who share our urgency to make the investments and innovations required to move our world to a more conscious, carbon balanced economy.”
