This marks Pearl Jam’s first Hamilton show in over a decade. The band previously played at Copps Coliseum in 2011 and 2005.
Initially scheduled on March 24, 2020 to promote their upcoming album Gigaton, the tour was postponed until further notice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was one of the first major American tours to be affected by the pandemic. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date.
Pearl Jam are best known for their breakthrough in the ’90s with hits like Alive, Even Flow, and Jeremy, making them one of the most famous and acclaimed rock bands in the world. They have also rescheduled Canadian tour stops in Quebec City, Ottawa, and Toronto.
Former Red Hot Chili Pepper’s guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who joined Pearl Jam’s touring lineup last year, will also open the show with his solo project Pluralone.
