Pearl Jam are often considered one of the foremost pioneers of the alternative rock scene that captured the world’s imagination throughout the 1990s.
Lead by the enigmatic frontman Eddie Vedder, the band first broke through in 1991 with their debut album Ten and have since gone on to sell more than 85 million albums worldwide.
Known for tracks such as Black, Jeremy, Rearviewmirror and the timeless Alive, Pearl Jam have been hugely influential on music, leaving a lasting presence that can still be felt throughout rock today.
In 2017 the band’s impact on music was recognised as they were inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame, in what was their first year of eligibility.
Since their breakthrough, Pearl Jam have earned a well-deserved reputation for their phenomenal live shows with Rolling Stone listing the rockers as one of the Top Ten Live Acts Of All Time in a readers poll in 2011.
Last year the band came to the UK to perform two sold out shows at London’s The O2, receiving rave reviews.
2020 will see Pearl Jam celebrate 30 years as a band and they’ll take to the stage at London’s Hyde Park for what is sure to be one of the most memorable shows of the summer.
The band will be joined on the day by the Black Francis lead Pixies, known for tracks such as Where Is My Mind?, Here Comes Your Man and Gigantic, as well as the Kentucky-formed rockers White Reaper.
