Pearl Jam Announce 2015 South American Tour
Pearl Jam have announced a 2015 South American tour, with nine stops scheduled for this November.
Eddie Vedder and company will kick things off on Nov. 4 in Santiago, Chile. Other confirmed dates include Porto Alegre, Sao Paulo, Brasilla, Belo Horizonte and Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Pearl Jam will conclude the tour on Nov. 28 in Mexico City. Find more details over on the band’s website.
The South American leg of Pearl Jam’s tour is in support of their most recent album, Lightning Bolt, which arrived in 2013. In February, the album -- Pearl Jam’s 10th full-length -- won the Grammy award for Best Recording Package.
Before the Seattle-based rockers embark on their South American tour, they'll host their own version of March Madness – you guessed it: Pearl Jam Madness. The bracket pits Pearl Jam’s best songs up against one another; it’s up to you to pick which ones you think will win the big title. You can make your predictions from now until March 15 here. The first round will run from March 16-19, with the winning song announced on April 6.
