Major Update On Pearl Jam Hiatus, Is 2019 Tour Planned?


Pearl Jam expert and insider dimitrispearljam recently reported on the Ten Club boards that Pearl Jam do not currently have any 2019 shows booked, so fans hoping that there are secret shows on the books shouldn’t start making plans, as the band is currently on hiatus from touring.

He posted, “Till now, No pj shows booked for 2019.”

He later posted, “NO SHOWS BOOKED..NOTHING.”

Eddie Vedder stated last year that the next time Pearl Jam would play together would be in a studio.

There had been talk that Pearl Jam would play Woodstock’s 50th anniversary show in August, but promoter interest doesn’t necessarily make booking them a reality. Also while no shows are currently booked, plans could always change later in the year.

Billboard reported today that a lineup for Woodstock has been secured, and artists have been paid in full after some delays with the people funding the festival. With the deposits now paid, the lineup for the festival will likely be announced in the next two weeks, Billboard has learned. Artists such as Dead and Company, Santana, The Killers, Imagine Dragons and Chance the Rapper will be performing at the festival, which is taking place at the Watkins Glen International Speedway, about an hour-and-a-half east of the original Woodstock site, where non-profit Bethel Woods is planning its own tribute at its 15,000-person amphitheater with Live Nation.

“There’s always been lots of rumors around Woodstock,” Lang said in a statement to Billboard. “We have excellent partners and an incredible talent lineup of over 80 artists which will be announced within the next couple of weeks. We’re preparing a once in a lifetime event.”
