Pearl Jam & Red Hot Chili Peppers Tour Dates Rumor Leaks


Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chili Peppers are rumored to perform at the Apollo Theater this year. Pearl Jam was set for a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners on Thursday, March 26 back in 2020. However, it was called off amid the pandemic. The show was rescheduled and now it seems that the show might take place this year in September, with Red Hot Chili Peppers also playing at the Apollo, according to a Ten Club board rumor.

Eddie Vedder makes solo outing a group project

Eddie Vedder’s new album and tour are a solo project. But the longtime Pearl Jam frontman was anything but alone on the almost-accidental venture. “The Earthling” was all about collaboration and camaraderie.

“It’s my picture on the cover of the record but there should be so many people on it,” Vedder said when he first played the finished album for a small group of friends and reporters at a Hollywood studio. “People just kept elevating the sounds by contributing.”

It features a band of his peers, including producer Andrew Watt, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, and former Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, along with guest stars including Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Ringo Starr that made the process feel like a fantasy camp.

It has been noted that the album is similar to a tour through music history in more ways than one. Released in February, it now sits atop the Billboard album sales chart, which measures traditional in-store purchases of CDs and vinyl.

“Years ago, selling records seemed a little bit scary, then all of the sudden you didn’t sell records anymore,” Vedder said during the band’s tour stop Friday at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. “We sold enough records of this one last week to be the No. 1 record. So I’m not scared anymore.”

In other news related to Pearl Jam’s frontman Eddie Vedder, the Vedder solo album ‘Earthling’ has proven to be quite the successful endeavor as it is now the top-selling album in the country according to reports. The album has debuted one on Billboard’s Top Album Sales, Top Rock Albums, and Top Current Album Sales charts. In addition to all of this, it has also hit number one on the Alternative Album Sales, Canadian Top Current Albums, Top Canadian Album Sales, Alternative Album, Current Digital Albums, and LP Vinyl Albums charts.
