Pearl Jam Major Change To 2022 Tour Revealed


Pearl Jam will embark on their first North American Tour in two years with the 2020 North American Tour, which has now been rescheduled for May and September 2022. Concerts will begin on May 3 in San Diego and conclude on May 20 in Las Vegas in support of the band’s 2020 album Gigaton. Four new locations have also been added to the lineup – Fresno, Sacramento, Camden, and Las Vegas.

On Pearl Jam’s official forums, a user made a post asking about pandemic protocols for the concerts. There is some contradicting information about the San Diego concert which will take place on May 3. Ticketmaster says the concert requires proof of a negative test or vaccine. But the venue’s website says that neither is required.

A user responded to the post, saying that what the venue says on their site trumps what Ticketmaster says. Another user chimed in saying that they should have sent an email weeks ago stating concertgoers don’t need to be vaccinated.

A fan posted a statement containing information regarding the pandemic protocols which reads, “Pearl Jam
May 3rd, Viejas Arena
For this show, ticket holders will not be required to furnish proof of vaccination, or a negative test result to enter the venue.
FULLY VACCINATED individuals are not required to wear facial coverings while attending concerts at Viejas Arena.
UNVACCINATED individuals should continue to wear facial coverings, except while eating and drinking, and are required to wear facial coverings when indoors. Facial coverings must cover both the nose and mouth.
Full vaccination is defined as completion of the two-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson administered at least 2 weeks before your scheduled concert date.”

So according to this statement, if you’re vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask. But if you are not vaccinated, you must wear a mask. At the same time, however, as pointed out by another user, the venue is not asking for proof of vaccination.
