The announcement of a Pearl Jam tour is kind of like reporting on the fact that the sun rose this morning. Predictable? Sure, but also dependable, reassuring. That’s what Pearl Jam does, after all: tour. Even so, with Backspacer sailing through 2009 as one of the band’s strongest in years, any Pearl Jam news is cause for at least minor celebration.
PJ’s latest tour announcement will find the band spending summer 2010 in Europe, including several festival gigs and stops in Belgium, France and Portugal.
