Pearl Jam has announced nine U.S. tour dates taking place in August/September.
The band will kick-off with two shows in St. Paul, Minn., on Aug. 31 and Sept. 2, followed by performances in Chicago, Indianapolis and Fort Worth, and a final pair of shows in Austin on Sept. 18 and 19. Inhaler will open the Chicago, Indianapolis and Austin shows; support for the other dates is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
According to a press release, Pearl Jam is also seeking “to protect fans’ access to fairly priced tickets”, with general public tickets sold via Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program, which fans can register for through April 25. The Verified Fan sale will launch on April 28. Tickets for the tour will be non-transferable in all states except Illinois where such restrictions are prohibited by law. Additionally, each of the concerts will sell “PJ Premium” tickets, which account for roughly 10%; they are priced at market rate and help to offset the cost of touring while keeping ticket prices lower across the board. The band will also use “all-in pricing” for the first time, meaning the full, out-of-pocket cost for tickets will be listed with fees upfront.
