Grunge survivors Pearl Jam will be embarking on an 11 city Spring tour of the Midwest and east coast including a stop at Quicken Loans Arena on May 9.
The band's 2009 release Backspacer has been mostly hailed as "return to form" (which happens pretty much anytime a rock band that's been around for 15 or more years makes a "back-to-basics" rawk record) and arguably their best record of the century debuting at number on on the Billboard charts. The album released on the band's own Monkeywrench records has been certified Gold, but record sales don't really mean crap to tour mon$ter$ like PJ so that's just extra ca$h for the band.
With Matt Cameron about to join the reunited Soundgarden, who may be headlining a few summer festivals, who knows when Pearl Jam will hit the road again so snap up your tickets.
Oh yeah, tickets go on sale Friday and Saturday, March 19th and 20th.
And here's Pearl Jam's official Youtube channel to get you suitably psyched.
