Pearl Jam Cancel More European Shows Due To Illness


Illness has once again forced Pearl Jam to cancel more European Shows, the band have confirmed.

Peal Jam announced this news via social media, pulling the plug on two upcoming shows in Berlin tomorrow and Wednesday, with refunds available at the point of purchase.

This comes just days after Pearl Jam cancelled a show at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, with band members reportedly taken ill.

Last Tuesday, Pearl Jam’s performance at Manchester’s CO-OP also saw frontman Eddie Vedder struggle with his vocals.

“not lost on us”

In a statement shared on social media, Pearl Jam said that they have “yet to make a full recovery” after being ill last week.

“The impacts of this decision are not lost on us. We feel deeply that so many people spend their time, money, and emotional energy to get tickets and then to come see the band and it is heart wrenching to have to disappoint you”, they added.

Back in 2022, Pearl Jam were also forced to call off several shows, after Vedder suffered vocal damage in French wildfires, following a concert in Paris. More on that here.

Pearl Jam have been performing a string of shows as part of their ongoing tour, supporting their new album, Dark Matter.

Last week, the band performed at Dublin’s Marlay Park, where Eddie Vedder showed his support for Natasha O’Brien, a young Irish woman who was assaulted by soldier Cathal Crotty.

Crotty was handed a suspended sentence by the court, after pleading guilty to the assault, which happened in 2022.

“We gotta ask these judges too to protect our sisters, our daughters, our mothers, our wives”, Vedder told the crowd.

He also added: “And it might be a good idea to have some more female judges too,” Vedder added, before the band broke into their song Better Man”.
