A Jam Good Time – Pearl Jam Set To Go Out On Tour

Pearl Jam’s popularity peak probably came during the early 90’s, when they were a major player in the grunge scene. Ask fans of that music style who were the big players at the time, and Pearl Jam is sure to come across their lips, either before or after Nirvana.

This tour is following the release of their newest studio album, entitled Backspacer. Little known fact – this album was named after the 375-kilogram female sea turtle that the band sponsored in an April event called the Great Turtle Race. For those that are curious, Backswimmer came in first place. This will be the ninth studio album that the band has released since it first debuted with the album “Ten” in 1991.

Since coming onto the scene in the 90s, music isn’t the only arena the band has been busy in. They joined other performers in the Vote for Change concerts that were held leading up to the elections in 2004, raised money for those that were affected by Katrina, and were fighting against the control and commercialism of the recording industry while making a name for themselves when they first started out. All of that, and they still managed to become one of the most in-demand grunge rock bands of their time. Not to mention that despite being on the music scene for 18 years, they’re still making records and sending fans across the globe into a frenzy with their recent tour. That’s quite a feat, given how fickle the industry can be.

The band will start the North American leg of its tour on August 21st in Toronto, Ontario and travels all across the US before playing its last show on the continent in the Wachovia Spectrum Arena in Philadelphia, PA on October 31st.  Get your Pearl Jam Tickets for these shows are already available. Fans that are able to catch the earlier shows will get a sneak peek at the album’s tracks, since it’s not slated to be released until September 20th.
