Pearl Jam Tickets for Sale
Pearl Jam tickets are back! Look for Pearl Jam concert tickets to see the grunge band that was not as they celebrate the group's 20th anniversary with a two-day music festival on September 3rd and 4th, 2011 and a Canadian tour to close out the month and the season.
Pearl Jam tickets for the music festival are being dubbed PJ20 tickets. The PJ20 music festival is a celebration of the band's favorite artists from way back when they were starting out in Seattle up to contemporary up and comers. The festival lineup includes the headliners both nights, Pearl Jam, along with the Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, Mudhunny, John Doe, Joseph Arthur, Glen Hansard, Liam Finn, TheNewNO2, David Garza, Star Anna, The Young Evils, and Jason Lytle.
Pearl Jam tickets for the Canadian tour begin with a September 7th show at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec and end with a September 25th show at the P.N.E. Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia. Muddhoney will be touring with the group as the opening act, making this a 1990s-refic concert experience.
Pearl Jam Tour tickets were almost an immediate must buy in the Seattle rock scene in the 1990s. The band enjoyed a certain amount of legitimacy before even taking the stage. Bassist Jeff Ament and rhythm guitarist Stone Gossard reunited after the tragic death of their previous grunge band Mother Bone had seemingly thrust the emotionally distraught pair from the music scene altogether. Ultimately, they healed and recruited lead guitarist Mike McCready, discovered lead singer Eddie Vedder when they were looking for a drummer, and added Dave Krusen to play drums to complete the lineup.
Pearl Jam tickets were an immediate success. They played the Off Ramp Café in Seattle on October 22, 1990 and suddenly had a fervent fan base and signed with Epic Records soon after. After signing with the record label, the band changed its name from Mookie Blaylock to Pearl Jam. The band also found itself with a revolving door at drummer.
Pearl Jam lost Krusen to rehab after a year and Matt Chamberlain to the Saturday Night Live band before enjoying some consistency wit Dave Abbruzzese for three years. Personal conflicts resulted in Abbruzzese's departure, which brought in the Jack Irons era. Irons would leave in 1998, dissatisfied with the touring conditions. Luckily, drummer Matt Cameron has been a rock since Irons left.
Pearl Jam tickets are not sold because of the drummer though. It is Vedder's voice and the compelling lyrics that have inspired fans take every one of the nine studio albums to number one or two in the Billboard 200. The album sales have not been as strong as time has passed.
Pearl Jam concert tickets and tour plans have overshadowed the actual albums as time has passed. The album debut album Ten went diamond in the U.S., the sophomore album Vs. went seven-times platinum, and the third album Vitality went five-times platinum. The last two albums of the 20th century, No Code and Yield, have gone platinum, but every 21st century release has only managed to go Gold.
Pearl Jam tour goers certainly expect to hear far more classic hits from the extensive catalog of top ten songs form the 1990s than the newer, though appreciated tracks. So, expect Pearl Jam to mix in "Jeremy", "Who You are", "Last Kiss", and many other pre-turn of the century songs along with whatever sound they are experimenting with at the time.
