After postponing their 2020 tour back to this year, Pearl Jam have been forced again to push back their shows.
The band will now play in 2022 for some huge shows, where they will play two nights in London as part of the British Summer Time event at Hyde Park. Tickets already purchased for these Euro shows will remain valid, and for fans who won’t be able to make these new dates, head to your point of purchase. General public tickets are also available now if you haven’t already picked yours up.
Pearl Jam have announced the details of two charitable causes for the Vitaogy Foundation: a box of band-themed chocolates and a stream of their 2018 Hometown Seattle concert.

In addition fans can also purchase a charity box of caramel chocolates made in collaboration with Theo Chocolates.
On top of the money, Pearl Jam raised to fight homelessness at the time of the Seattle shows, the band will also donate the proceeds from The Home Shows caracem collection to keep backing a cause that is so important to them, Kerrang! writes.
In a statement, the band have said:
“As Pearl Jam prepares to stream Night 2 of the Home Shows this year, we’re excited to once again partner with the Vitalogy Foundation on an exclusive treat – this time giving you a taste of our handmade caramels.
“This delicious collection of three of our northwest-inspired caramel flavours comes wrapped in a Pearl Jam Home Shows commemorative sleeve that you’ll love long after the chocolate has been enjoyed! It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day treat to enjoy while experiencing an iconic evening of music and supporting a worthy cause.”

Pearl Jam have been announced at the ambassadors for the 2019 Record Store Day.
The 2019 event will take place on April 13, with exclusive releases to be announced soon.
On the news, Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready said: “Independent record stores are hugely important to me, and have been ever since I was 12 years-old. Before I even really knew what they were — there was a certain feeling of ‘this is a dream come true,’ and it’s a wonderland and there’s so much to learn in here… and it’s still that way,”
“Support every independent record store that you can. They’re really a good part of society. Know if you love music, this is the place to find it. And it helps people who work here and that’s important, too.
“Come out on Record Store Day, but also make it Record Store Year.”
