first_imgYesterday, a handful of Pearl Jam North American tour dates briefly leaked on the band’s website. Amidst the flurry of tour and festival announcements that customarily takes place each January, a handful of concert dates appeared on the band’s list of upcoming performances.The new dates had the band performing at Safeco Field in their native Seattle, WA on August 8th and 10th, Washington-Grizzly Stadium in Missoula, MT on August 13th, Wrigley Field in Chicago (the home of Eddie Vedder‘s beloved Chicago Cubs) on August 18th and 20th, and at Boston’s Fenway Park on September 2nd and 4th.In addition to the dates–the majority of which are Major League Baseball stadiums, the website also briefly displayed a “The Home Shows” section of the list, perhaps indicating that the shows will take on an athletic theme and be marketed as “Home” (Seattle) and “Away” (elsewhere) shows.“The Home Shows” page on the Pearl Jam website (now removed, screenshot via Alternative Nation):You can see screenshots of the now-removed dates below courtesy of Alternative Nation: While these dates have not been confirmed by the band, and are no longer on the website, the fact that fully-detailed announcements, website updates, and custom artwork have been produced surely points toward their legitimacy, and likely portends an imminent tour announcement from the band.As of now, the only dates officially on Pearl Jam’s schedule are overseas. In March, they will head to South America for four performances including Lollapalooza events in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil, and an extra stadium show in Rio thrown in for good measure. In June and July, the band will make their way through Europe on a 14-date run stopping in the Netherlands, the U.K., Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and Portugal.For more information on Pearl Jam’s touring plans, head to the band’s website.[h/t – Alternative Nation][Cover photo: Video screen shot from 8/20/16 at Wrigley Field]last_img
