Pearl Jam Announce 2016 U.S. Tour Dates

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.

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
4/9 Miami
4/11 Tampa
4/13 Jacksonville
4/15 Atlanta
4/16 Nashville
4/18 Columbia SC

Two Metal Bands Involved In Fatal Van Crash

It has been reported by WSB-TV Atlanta that at around 7am this morning, a fatal van crash occurred at Interstate 85 in Georgia, near Highway 98. The greater details are as follows, as stated by The Georgia State Patrol;

“The driver of the passenger van may have fallen asleep, drove down an embankment and struck a tree. Three people were ejected and later died. Three others were in critical condition. A total of eight people were taken to Athens Regional Hospital and Northeast Georgia Medical Center.”

Those involved in the crash are the members of two metal bands, Wormreich, and Khaotika. Both bands have been doing a short tour with Kult Ov Azazel, who had this to say on their Facebook page this morning;

“Unfortunately tonight’s show in Atlanta, GA will be canceled. The van carrying Wormreich and Khaotika was in a horrible accident this morning. We cannot go into details due to respect to the families of the involved and we are sure details will soon be available through the other parties when the time is right. Our thoughts are with those involved and their families.”

Troopers report that a total of twelve members between the two bands were involved in this accident. Charges are pending in this case.

As of 1:25 PM Wormreich’s label Moribund Records has confirmed the death of guitarist Ian McKinney (Nazgul Vathron). The names of the other two fatal victims have not been disclosed as of now. Echoing Kult Ov Azazel, our deepest sympathies and most positive vibes go out to the victims and their families. Remember to be well-rested before driving.

Alice In Chains Talk Festivals And Tours

In an interview with Music Feeds, Alice in Chains frontman, William DuVall compared playing festival venues to band tours.
“It’s hard to say [what is better] because with the festival thing, you might make some compromises in terms of your own production or your details,” said DuVall,  “your logistics of putting the show on. But you might get to reach people that you never normally reach. You get to see a lot of bands, some of whom are your friends, which is great. But your own gigs, you’re controlling every aspect of the atmosphere and you’re playing your people.”

Alice in Chains will be touring Asia before hitting in the road in the US this Spring.
