Earlier this morning, Pearl Jam posted a tour announcement on their website:
“Pearl Jam announced today that they will perform a series of North American concert dates between April and August of 2016.
A special ticket pre-sale drawing for all dates except the festival and stadium dates starts today for current Ten Club members (as of Monday, January 18th). Memberships purchased after Monday, January 18th are not eligible for the Ten Club pre-sale drawing for any of the shows listed below including the shows in Boston and Chicago. “
The website also notes that all dates are subject to change. The exact performance date and time at Bonnaroo will be announced at a later time, as well as ticket information regarding the dates at Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. However, tickets for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest are on sale and now and the tickets for Bonnaroo go on sale this friday.
These tour date announcements come out of the recent rumors of tour dates announcements, as reported earlier this week by Jeremy Neugebauer :
Pearl Jam have basically teased again what they have been teasing since late last year by announcing on their Facebook page and Twitter that a tour announcement is coming soon.
Announcement coming soon…https://t.co/zSWEDwFxbF

As far back as October Alternative Nation has been reporting the following tour dates, however a headlining stint at the Bonnaroo Festival has been rumored to be replacing the Nashville date and Canadian radio station 101.5 The Wolf announced a contest to win tickets to a performance in Toronto on Tuesday, May 10th, so the rumored dates below may vary a bit. With the Bonnaroo announcement coming January 18th on Conan, Pearl Jam’s announcement may coincide with the Bonnaroo announcement (antsy Pearl Jam fans are hoping anyway).
Rumored Pearl Jam 2016 Tour Dates from October:
4/8 Ft Lauderdale
4/18 Columbia SC
5/6 Albany or Hartford
