Pearl Jam announced this morning that they will be taking over the friendly confines of Wrigley Field for a special concert on July 19th. The concert, along with another show in London, Ontario, are being billed as "An Evening With Pearl Jam", with no opening act.
Lead singer, and Evanston native, Eddie Vedder has been a long time fan of the Cubs, even writing the song All The Way, after a meeting with Ernie Banks.
Tickets will go on sale, Saturday, February 9th, at 10 am. Members of Pearl Jam's fan club can enter a drawing to purchase advance tickets, including the fan club only pit section.
The band is currently working on the follow-up to 2009's, Backspacer, and are expected to announce a full tour in the fall.
