Pearl Jam were set to perform their first 2020 show with Dave Matthews Band at ‘All In WA’ digitally tonight, but the show has been postponed after the tragic murder of George Floyd and what has followed.

Organizers said, “With the events that have taken place over the past several days, built on generations of trauma and violence, the organizers of All In WA have decided to reschedule All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief to Wednesday, June 24.

We recognize the pain and injustice the Black and African American community is facing, once again, and the need to honor the ongoing marches, protests, and organizing. We also want to give space for our community to focus on what matters most at the moment; acknowledging and addressing systemic racism and violence that dehumanizes Black people and families, and taking steps to build to a new reality.

We recognize that for many in our community and country, this grief and trauma are nothing new, and the effects are compounding.”

Ben Gibbard, Brandi Carlile, and Sir Mix-A-Lot were also set to perform. Ciara & Russell Wilson, Macklemore, Pete Carroll, Joel McHale, Allen Stone, Mary Lambert, The Black Tones, and others were also set for the show, put on by Amazon for charity amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
