This afternoon Pearl Jam announced a new tour. The 24-date run begins on October 11 at Console Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA, and ends on December 6 at Key Arena in the band's hometown of Seattle, WA. The new tour dates add on to the two already announced earlier this year, including a show later this month at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL, and the band's set at the Voodoo Festival in November.
The tour announcements come amidst buzz over a mysterious countdown clock. The clock was originally introduced last week and counted down to today's tour announcement, but immediately reset to run out this Thursday at 3pm ET. Theories about the new revelation have varied from a possible new single in advance of Pearl Jam's upcoming album to the release date of the album itself.
The upcoming tour contains the first extensive United States schedule since 2010. Although the band did play in the country in the last couple years, it was only for five dates between the two years.
