“I just wanna scream HELLO!!! My god it’s been so long, never dreamed you’d return…”
Looks like the rumors are true and Pearl Jam will be heading out on the road after the summer comes to a close. Here’s the announcement as I heard it on PJ Radio:
Pearl Jam will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary with a Labor Day Weekend (which happens to be my birthday) festival in Alpine Valley, WI, followed by a 10-date Canada tour.
The festival will be Pearl Jam’s only US performance in 2011 (sad face) and will feature The Strokes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mudhoney, and John Doe (and more?).
Information will posted on the PJ20 website (which is currently down).
Edit – Here’s the official announcement:
