Pearl Jam Gigaton

Exciting news for Pearl Jam fans, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and legends of rock have just announced their much-anticipated eleventh studio album, Gigaton. This album is set to be released on March 27, 2020, and comes nearly seven years after Lightning Bolt's release in 2013.

Better yet, fans in the DMV region do not have to renew their passports to see Pearl Jam on their upcoming 2020 European Tour - unless they want to, of course. The band has announced a 16-date North American Tour which includes a stop at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD, on March 28, 2020. It has been nearly seven years since Pearl Jam last performed in the DMV was all the way back in October 2013 when they performed in the very same arena. This news is a truly delightful way to start off the new year for music fans.

"Making this record was a long journey, it was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on Gigaton ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times."

Mike McCready   //  On making Gigaton

In their 30 year career, the band and their fans have celebrated a legacy that any group could only dream of having. Their accomplishments include eleven studio albums, 85 million albums sold worldwide, and over a thousand performances spanning almost every corner of the globe to countless fans. 

We are thrilled to welcome Pearl Jam to Baltimore this coming year. 2020 marks the 30th anniversary since this band formed in Seattle, and it is hard to comprehend the musical landscape without this band in it. 

DC Music Review is excited that long history will include yet another night of rocking in the free world in Baltimore with this magical band. We anticipate a night of exceptional music and a celebratory uncorking of red wine by charismatic frontman Eddie Vedder alongside Mike McCready, Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Matt Cameron

We are already looking beyond the performance and ready to purchase and download an official recording of the Baltimore performance that will available on Pearl Jam's Official Bootleg site.
