Pearl Jam add Apollo album release show to tour (updated dates)
Pearl Jam are gearing up to release their new album Gigaton (lead by the dancey new single "Dance of the Clairvoyants") and go on an arena tour, including a sold-out show at NYC's Madison Square Garden on March 30. Before that, though, they'll play a show at a smaller iconic NYC venue: Harlem's Apollo Theater on March 26.
It's SiriusXM and Pandora-presented show that will air live on Pearl Jam’s SiriusXM channel, right after the station broadcasts a full stream of Gigaton (which comes out that same day). Pandora is also hosting a Pearl Jam playlist that day and a "Pandora Story," for which the band will "share insights and stories" about their music.
Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard said, "We are incredibly humbled and honored to take the stage at the legendary Apollo Theater. We look forward to a memorable show to celebrate Gigaton and the 10-year anniversary of Pearl Jam Radio at SiriusXM. It’s hard to understate the sacred and historical importance of the Apollo to the history of American popular music and African Americans’ preeminent role in its invention. We will play this special one time show with those artists in mind."
Tickets for the show will only be available to SiriusXM and Pandora subscribers. If you don't live in New York, you can also enter to win a trip to the show, including round trip airfair, hotel accommodations, and two front row tickets.
Updated tour dates are listed, with a stream of "Dance of the Clairvoyants," below.
