Pearl Jam open air tour

Enduring Seattle troupe Pearl Jam will land in Australia this November for a series of open air shows. It has been three years since the band’s last visit, and FasterLouder is proud to be presenting their triumphant return.

Pearl Jam is readying its ninth album Backspacer for release in September, described by guitarist Mike McCready as “a tight, concise rock – Å“n roll record”. We’ll be among them first to hear the new songs given the live treatment.

Joining the 2009 tour party is frequent antipodean guest Ben Harper, who’ll lead his Relentless 7 in the support slot. First to hit the stage will be prodigious songman Liam Finn, who has previously supported Eddie Vedder at his solo dates. All this talent under a summer night sky is sure to amount to something special.

Pearl Jam, Liam Finn and Ben Harper & the Relentless 7 play these shows in November, proudly presented by FasterLouder. Tickets on sale 9am Monday 17 August.
