Don’t look now but Pearl Jam will be performing with Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers fairly soon! The Summer festival season is slowly heating up, despite the world still being in a pandemic. However, music festivals such as Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee, and Boston Calling in Boston Massachusetts announcing impressive festival lineups – among others. Eddie Vedder recently discussed when he wanted to ‘call it quits’ not too long ago.

Internationally this has been the case as well as it was just announced that Pearl Jam will headline the Rock 2022 Werchter Festival. The event will be held from June 30th to July 3rd at Festival Park in Werchter, Belgium.

The group will be playing on June 30th alongside other heavy-hitters such as Beck and the Pixies. While other days boasts mega acts including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Metallica, Greta Van Fleet, Keane, Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, Modest Mouse, and more. The full lineup can be viewed below.

This year will be a pretty busy year for not only Pearl Jam but the group’s leading frontman – Eddie Vedder. Vedder is set to be releasing a brand new solo album later next month. This album entitled ‘Earthling’ will be landing on Earth on February 11th and while it’s scheduled for pre-orders, a disclaimer note does say that due to issues in the supply chain, deluxe CD and vinyl formats won’t be able to ship until June of this year.

Vedder’s nine-show tour will, in addition, include stops in New York City, Newark (New Jersey), Chicago, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Seattle. This would be Vedder’s first solo album since 2011’s Ukulele Songs. Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, and Elton John will also be contributing to the album as well. Vedder recently partied with a surprising name in these New Year’s photos.
