After playing just two shows in 2007, Pearl Jam will return to the road this summer for a 10-date tour beginning June 11 in West Palm Beach, Fla. The dates come in conjunction with the group’s previously announced co-headlining appearance at Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Festival in mid-June.
"I’m looking forward to Bonnaroo," bassist Jeff Ament tells Billboard. "The thing that’s probably the most exciting to me is that we’ve been a band for 17 or 18 years and there’s still things like this that we haven’t done."
The trek includes a June 24-25 stand at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which has hosted some of the band’s most iconic shows. Kings Of Leon will support from June 11-17, while Ted Leo and the Pharmacists will open the other dates.
