Pearl Jam spaces out some more dates…

After finishing his third round of solo dates, Eddie Vedder returns with his other Seattle four — Pearl Jam, folks — to rev up the hype machine. After all, they do have a pretty big album (see: Backspacer details) on the way. It’s their ninth, too!

While the band already has a few August dates in the bag, which include appearances overseas and at, um, Outside Lands, they’ve decided to extend the tour some, and with Ben Harper, no less! So, on September 21st, a day after they release Backspacer, Pearl Jam will hit the road again, starting in Seattle and continuing down the West coast, where they’ll have a four night residency in Los Angeles (though a day’s break at Austin City Limits, too) and night’s stay in sunny San Diego. For some odd reason, call it East coast jitters, they’ve managed to squeeze Philadelphia into the itinerary, too. Could there be more dates on the way? An educated guess would say, “Duh!”

Tickets for the new dates go on-sale July 17th and July 18th, so check your local ticketing agents. Also, be sure to mark your calendars for Backspacer, due out September 20th via Target and online.
