Pearl Jam came “Alive” for us in 1991 with their debut album Ten. In subsequent years, the band released greats like Vitalogy and Yield, earning them multi-platinum status, the critical acclaim to match, and a sum of nine studio releases. Now, with the announcement of a fall tour, we can only hope that PJ will come full circle and reach decagonal greatness with a new LP.
On October 11, the front will commence a two-leg tour in Pittsburgh that will make stops at Barclays in Brooklyn; the American Airlines Arena in Dallas; and, aptly so, end at the Key Arena in their hometown of Seattle on December 6. Since their last album, Backspacer, was released in 2009 though, this would obviously render a setlist comprising throwbacks (which isn't at all a bad thing considering PJ's commendable archives). However, if the new countdown on their official website is any indication, we could be in for some icing on this 24-city tour cake.
With three days left until Pearl Jam unlocks some anticipated (music?!) news, we've deemed it necessary to take a nostalgic walk through the band's most pensive work.
