Pearl Jam have announced that movie theaters have cancelled screenings of their Gigaton theater listening experience. The band wrote on their website:
We are aware several markets have already postponed or cancelled their screenings and we believe more will follow suit in the coming days. As this public health crisis continues to unfold, we have made the unfortunate decision to postpone ALL of the March 25th ‘Gigaton Theatrical Listening Experience’ events until they can be safely rescheduled.
We are working closely with all of our exhibitors around the world to quickly re-schedule these events as soon as possible.
The ticketing for this event was managed by local theaters and they will also be overseeing the ticket refund/transfer process. As each theater will be following their own ticketing systems, we ask you to please consult your point of sale for further information regarding refunds and/or transferring to the new date when scheduled.
The immersive event takes over the big screen just two days before the release of Pearl Jam’s anxiously awaited new album, Gigaton on March 27, 2020.
The Gigaton Listening Experience includes a playback of the entire album in Dolby Atmos. Since this immersive sound system is still new to the consumer market, Pearl Jam fans will have a unique opportunity to hear the album in a completely different way.
The Gigaton Listening Experience will be enhanced with a choice set of visuals curated and created by Evolve, the filmmaker and artist behind the music video for the first single “Dance of the Clairvoyants.”
