Alternative Nation reported a few days ago that reader Kevin Connaughton commented on our Facebook page regarding Pearl Jam, “They will be at Citizens Bank Park in Philly in September 2018 per my source at Live Nation.”
When we pressed him, he elaborated, “I did hear two nights at Citizens Bank Park in early September will happen. Family friend works for Live Nation (and also a huge PJ fan) and confirmed this. Phillies out of town on road trip from 9/3-9/9.”
A member of the Ten Club forums is now reporting the same rumor.

They are playing Citizen’s Bank Park in Philly for sure, likely second weekend of September. This per an executive friend that works at the stadium.
Philly will be the shows to go to and looks like will be the last of the tour according to the other rumor dates! Can’t Wait and already booked my flights. Hopefully a Thursday/Friday/Sunday Show! I know I know…wishful Thinking
This is now multiple sources for Philly… hopefully it’s legit.
Why would Philly be any different, crowd and setlist wise, than Wrigley or Fenway? Because of the new-ness?
And J Shandler……..c’mon down!!! You’re the next contestant to be quoted on alternativenation.net!!!
Obviously there could be more shows after Philadelphia in it turns out to be true, but we’ll have to wait and see!
