Music Musings: Pearl Jam Announces Fall Tour, Could Album Follow?
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.
