Headed by front man Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has been around since 1990. It was in 1991 that this iconic band exploded onto the charts with the success of their album 10. An integral part of the grunge scene of the 1990’s along with bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden, Pearl Jam has released nine albums over the years and had a number of top hits including Jeremy, Better Man, and Last Kiss. Their work has led to countless nominations and awards including Grammys, Golden Globes, MTV Video Music Awards, and much more. In addition to their work in music, the band has gained a reputation over the years for their political activism and campaigning.
Pearl Jam has not had very many North American tour dates over the last several years. Currently, the only 2013 concert dates in North America that are scheduled for this Seattle rock band are in London, Ontario on July 16 and now three days later on July 19 at the Friendly Confines in Chicago. This means that the Wrigley Field event, called “An Evening with Pearl Jam,” is the only concert currently planned for Pearl Jam in the United States this year.
With a history of popular stadium concerts, bringing Pearl Jam to one of the world’s greatest venues in Wrigley Field promises to be a once in a lifetime event for fans in Chicago and those throughout the country who can make it for the concert. Pearl Jam’s last studio album was Backspacer, released in 2009, so expect some newer hits in addition to their classics.
