Pearl Jam will stage a few special performances in the US this summer, including their first hometown shows in Seattle in five years.
“The Home Shows,” as they’ve been dubbed, will take place at Seattle’s Safeco Field on August 8th and 10th. With 100,000 fans expected to attend the shows, it could be the largest headlining concert in Seattle since The Rolling Stones visited the city in 1981. And being the good guys that they are, Pearl Jam intend to donate at least $1 million from ticket sales to causes supporting Seattle’s homeless population. They also hope to raise an additional $10 million in collaboration with area businesses, government agencies, and non-profits.
Following their soirée in Seattle, Pearl Jam will head out on the road for a series of “Away Shows.” Included are dates at Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, Montana; Wrigley Field in Chicago; and Fenway Park in Boston.
A ticket pre-sale is set for February 16th, though members of Pearl Jam’s Ten Club will have early access starting February 7th. Any remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public on February 21st. Registration through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program is required in order to purchase tickets. Or, you could bypass all that hassle and just grab ’em through Stubhub.
See Pearl Jam’s full schedule below. The band is also set to play shows in South America, the UK, and Europe in the coming months.
