There’s bands and there’s bands and there’s… Pearl Jam. They’re their own creation, their own category. Grunge icons, of course, but much more than that. Living legends. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017. Definitely one of the biggest rock bands of all time. Powerful, challenging, hard-working, resilient, full of integrity, idealism and principles, never afraid of taking risks. Pearl Jam have got it all: the unmistakable growl of Eddie Vedder, the classic rock riffing from Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, the diversity of Jeff Ament’s bass playing, Matt Cameron’s creative drumming and all those songs. They also have the most loyal fans. For good reason. This is, after all, the band that once was described as ”the rare superstars who still play as though each show could be their last”. Their show at Lollapalooza Stockholm 2020 will be the only concert for Pearl Jam in Sweden – and their first for six years.
Pearl Jam debuted with the breakthrough success of Ten in 1991, to this day it has sold more than 13 million copies in the United States alone. Nine more albums have followed, including Vs. (1993), Vitalogy (1994), No Code (1996) and, the latest one, Lightning Bolt (2013). They’ve sold an estimated 60 million records worldwide. The band is currently working on a new album.
