Pearl Jam have confirmed that the BST 2020 Hyde Park shows have been canceled, and may be rescheduled to 2021.

The band said, “We’ve just been informed that BST 2020 has been cancelled. We are hugely disappointed to share this news and are working closely with event organizers on our possible 2021 return.

In the meantime, ticket holders can hold onto their tickets. We are assessing the rest of the 2020 European tour dates with our partners and plan to have a full tour update on Friday. We appreciate your patience in understanding that Ten Club customer service has no further information to share until then. Stay safe.”

BST said, “It is with great sadness that we have made the difficult decision to cancel BST Hyde Park 2020.

After closely following government actions and statements during the COVID 19 pandemic, as well as consulting with our partners The Royal Parks and wider agencies, we have concluded that this is the only possible outcome. This would have been the 8th year of this event and we were looking forward to putting on amazing, unique shows for hundreds of thousands of fans in the world’s greatest outdoor venue. But safety always comes first.

In addition to the government rightly enforcing a prolonged period of social isolation, we would not want to place any extra strain on the emergency services, who we are lucky enough to have working alongside us at our events. We have the utmost respect for them and wish to express our admiration for their dedication and professionalism, which is proving so vital at this time.

We also have a responsibility to our staff, fans, event workers, suppliers and sponsors, so we have been closely monitoring all developments before making a final decision. We would like to thank them for their excellent work and we look forward to seeing you all next year when we can celebrate once again.

You will be contacted directly by the ticket agent you purchased from by 6th May allowing us time to review future plans and provide full information on the ticket refund process. If you have not been contacted about a refund by your ticket agent by this date please get in touch with them directly, bearing in mind they will be extremely busy at this time.

We look forward to welcoming you back in 2021 and will be in touch about plans soon. In the meantime, please follow the advice and stay safe.
