"Making this record was a long journey", guitarist Mike McCready explains of the album. They'll also make stops in Ottawa, Quebec City and Hamilton before heading south of the border. The tour kicks off March 18 at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena and concludes with a pair of April 18 and 19 shows at Oakland's Oakland Arena.

Pearl Jam's 11th studio album, Gigaton, will be released on March 27. The record is available for pre-order here. "Collaborating with my bandmates on "Gigaton" ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times".
Members of the band's fan club can purchase tickets beginning today, Monday, Jan. 13. Registration for Ticketmaster's Verified Fan registration, a program created to weed out scalpers, takes place Monday through Wednesday here.
The public on-sale begins January 24 at 10 a.m. local time; however, the band is conducting a series of pre-sales and a Fan-to-Fan ticket exchange.
Hints that Pearl Jam were planning to announce a new album began last week, starting with a couple of images on social media - one with the band name spelled out like an electrocardiogram and a more ambiguous one that looked like an animal's footprints or raindrops.
