Some sad news for Pearl Jam fans tonight. The band announced in a heartfelt letter on Twitter this evening that due to Coronavirus, “This scheduled first leg of our PJ/Gigaton tour will need to be postponed and shows rescheduled for a later date”.


Green Day recently cancelled part of their own Hella Mega due to Coronavirus too.


Pearl Jam added, ” It’s been brutal and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better. So we are being told that being part of large gatherings is high on the list of things to avoid as this global health crisis is now beginning to affect all of our lives.”

According to Rolling Stone, “The tour was supposed to kick off March 18th at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto and wrap up April 19th at the Oakland Arena in Oakland, California, but it will now take place at some indeterminate point in the future.”
