Pearl Jam are just a couple of weeks away from their concert in London and it seems some tickets are selling slow.

A video clip from a fan showed numerous empty seats even after they closed two of the upper tiers & moved the seats down. It was just a few months back, legendary grunge band Pearl Jam faced criticism from fans as the tickets for their world tour went on sale for an expensive price.

It has come to light that Eddie Vedder-led band are set to play Manchester Co-op Live and London Tottenham Hotspur Stadium later this month, where ticket prices started at a whopping price of £157.75. Fans in the US and Ireland were also faced with similar prices.

The prices of the tickets have dropped drastically and it is noted that if the fans book their tickets by July 5, they will get them at £63 (plus fees). However, they still haven’t managed to sell out the show. On a related note, 5 other major artists are doing a lot worse selling tickets on tour.

If the fees and taxes are dropped the tickets for two would probably be closer to $300 and even that is very pricey. The costly tickets are the reason some Pearl Jam fans have even nixed the idea of attending the show. One fan got denied on the 10 Club presale for Seattle but then refreshed Ticketmaster for Fan to Fan Tickets for a week or two and scored floor seats which were face value at $190 per person. He noted that the seats around him were upwards of $900 each.

Live music events have continued to remain the most popular events, in the UK though there are record high prices. However, with ticket prices reaching triple digits, some fans will be unable to attend. is not the first tour tour to come under the radar where pricing is concerned. Tickets to Adele’s Las Vegas residency this year started at a whopping $430, going up to thousands of dollars.

This is Pearl Jam’s Dark Matter tour which celebrates the release of the band’s 12th studio album. As per guitarist Mike McCready, the album is “a lot heavier” than fans may expect, and it only took three weeks to make.

Pearl Jam are set to hit the road again on June 22 with a show at Dublin, Ireland’s Marlay Park, opening a nine-stop European tour that will keep the band on the road through July 13. Following that, the group will return to the U.S., gracing high-profile stages in August and September. For more information on the Dark Matter World Tour, visit pearljam.com/tour.
