That's right folks, those living in Toronto or surrounding areas will be treated with a visit from Pearl Jam on August 12th 2009. This is one of only two shows they'll be playing in North America after they return from Europe.
This is from Pearl Jam's Myspace Blog:
Two More Pearl Jam Tour Dates AddedPretty exciting news eh? The only thing better than that news would be reading that they are stopping in St. John's, Newfoundland for a quick show before heading off to Toronto. I mean, they practically gotta fly right over the place on their way... and for all I know may even have to stop here for a refuel or something. I wonder if I started a petition or something would they come? Or maybe I'll just have to save up enough money and hitch hike to Toronto.
We've got another Pearl Jam surprise for you ... Toronto and Chicago!! The band will wrap up their European run with two more shows on the North American continent:
Date - City - Venue
Aug 21 - Toronto, ONT - Molson Amphitheater
Aug 23 - Chicago, IL - United Center
Ten Club has tickets for both shows and a pre-sale will begin on May 4th. You must be an active member as of May 3, 2009 to qualify for the ticket pre-sale. Starting May 6th, any remaining tickets will become available to ALL active members regardless of membership sign up date. The ticket pre-sale will end on May 6th at 3pm Pacific Time.
Either way, it's good to have in back in the Big Land!
