Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder will embark on his first solo tour this spring, in support of his Monkeywrench/J soundtrack to the acclaimed film "Into the Wild." Dates begin April 2 in Vancouver; Liam Finn will open.
Vedder was uncertain about presenting the material live when he spoke to Billboard late last year. "I like the idea. It’ll happen when it happens if it happens," he said with a laugh.
But he has since come around to the idea, perhaps encouraged by a well-received performance of "Into the Wild" music at a private party in Los Angeles in November.
Here are Eddie Vedder’s tour dates:
April 2: Vancouver (the Centre)
April 5: Santa Cruz, Calif. (Civic Auditorium)
April 7: Berkeley, Calif. (Zellerbach Auditorium)
April 10: Santa Barbara, Calif. (Arlington Theatre)
April 12-13: Los Angeles (Wiltern Theatre)
April 15: San Diego (Spreckels Theatre)
