Pearl Jam Postpones 'Gigaton' U.S. Tour Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

The San Diego performance originally scheduled for April 13, 2020 has postponed - a new date has not been confirmed.

Pearl Jam will release their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton, on Monkeywrench Records / Republic Records on March 27, 2020 in the US. Internationally, the album will be released and distributed by Universal Music Group. Produced by Josh Evans and Pearl Jam, Gigaton marks the band’s first studio album since GRAMMY award-winning Lightning Bolt, which was released on October 15, 2013.

Gigaton is available for pre-order now at pearljam.com. The first single, “Dance of the Clairvoyants”, will be released in the coming weeks.

“Making this record was a long journey,” explains Mike McCready. “It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."

Gigaton’s cover features Canadian photographer, filmmaker, and marine biologist Paul Nicklen’s photo “Ice Waterfall.” Taken in Svalbard, Norway, this image features the Nordaustlandet ice cap gushing high volumes of meltwater.

In support of Gigaton, Pearl Jam will embark on their first leg of North American tour dates in March and April. The 16-date tour kicks-off on March 18 in Toronto and includes a stop at Viejas Arena in San Diego on April 13. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com.

Pearl Jam's North American tour is in addition to the band's previously announced European summer tour. Full details at: pearljam.com/tour.
