Pearl Jam have been announced as a headliner for next year’s British Summer Time shows in London’s Hyde Park. They’ll play outdoor show on Friday, 10 July, with support from The Pixies and White Reaper. More acts are still to be announced.
The show will be Pearl Jam’s only UK show of 2020, with ticket pre-sales kicking off on 2 December. Visit the band’s official website for further information.
The BST show will be Pearl Jam’s first UK date since they finished their 2018 tour at the O2 in London, a date rescheduled after Eddie Vedder lost his voice.
Formed in Seattle in 1990, Pearl Jam were one of the pioneers of the alternative rock movement that changed music forever. Lead by the superstar frontman Eddie Vedder, their breakout debut album Ten, released in 1991, had a lasting impact on the scene, achieving the group mainstream success. They’ve inspired countless bands with their hits, including ‘Black’, ‘Jeremy’, ‘Alive’ and ‘Rearviewmirror’.
The enduring outfit have been hugely commercially successful with more than 85 million albums sold worldwide and they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, which was their first year of eligibility.
Since 1990, the band have cultivated a reputation for being one of the most incredible live acts of all time. From the very first time they performed in front of a live audience at the Off Ramp, Seattle in 1990, right up to today, they have set a bar of excellence that few are able to surpass.
Joining Pearl Jam are fellow US rock legends, Pixies. Formed in 1986, Pixies have inspired a wealth of bands since including Nirvana, Radiohead, two past BST Hyde Park headliners The Strokes and Blur – and even a future one, Pearl Jam.
Hailing from Louisville in Kentucky, White Reaper will bring the rock & roll to Hyde Park on 10 July. The early stage of their existence sprinkled bubblegum hooks and psychedelic weirdness over their short, energetic garage punk songs.
