Pearl Jam postpones upcoming tour amid COVID-19 fears


SEATTLE — Iconic Seattle band Pearl Jam has postponed its upcoming North America tour for the release of their new album “Gigaton” due to the COVID-19 outbreak, band members announced Monday.

“As residents of the city of Seattle, we’ve been hit hard and have witnessed firsthand how quickly these disastrous situations can escalate,” a note signed by lead singer Eddie Vedder and the band reads on their social media channels. “Our kids’ schools have closed along with universities and businesses. It’s been brutal and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better.”

The tour was set to begin March 18 in Toronto and was expected to play 16 dates, finishing in Oakland, California in mid-April.
