Pearl Jam Return To UK

Pearl Jam have announced that they will play a rare UK live show at London’s Wembley Arena this June.

The date is part of their 13-date Summer European tour.

The show in London on June 18 will see the entire floor section of Wembley Arena reserved for members of Pearl Jam’s fan club.

Pearl Jam only headlined the Carling Weekend festival last year – and it is unprecedented that the band should return to the UK so soon.

The group’s manager, Kelly Curtis, said they were looking forward to playing: "Historically, there have been five years or so between our visits to Europe, so it's a treat to go back again.”

Lisbon, Passeio Maritimo Alges, (June 8)
Madrid, Festimad (9)
Munich, Olympichalle (12)
Poland, Chorzow Stadion Slaski (13)
