New Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder Solo Festival Shows Announced
Pearl Jam fans on both coasts will get to see the band headline on the beach this September.
The group will head to the Asbury Park, NJ See.Hear.Now Festival the weekend of Sept 19-20 and Eddie Vedder’s own Ohana Festival in Dana Point, Calif. on Sept. 27. Vedder will also headline the latter festival on Sept. 26 with a solo show.
See.HearNow, which was co-founded by acclaimed rock photographer and longtime Pearl Jam friend Danny Clinch two years ago, also features the Patti Smith Band, Avett Brothers, Cage the Elephant and dozens of others. In addition to Vedder and Pearl Jam's sets Ohana will feature Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, the Frames, the Pretenders and many more.
Both festivals represent the first Pearl Jam shows announced for the fall in what is shaping up to be a big year for the band. March 27 will bring the release of their 11th studio album Gigaton. Their North American tour, which will feature a date at New York's iconic Apollo Theater, kicks off March 18.
