Dear PJ fans and ticket holders,

As the band battled in Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band went through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they must now present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament tested positive for Covid.

This is horrible for everyone involved and we are especially sorry for those who planned to attend these shows.
Our focus on staying inside the bubble has been consistent. We really did everything we could to stay safe from infection.

Unfortunately, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled. Ticket refunds will be automatically processed based on the ticket holders’ method of purchase. We are so sorry. Be safe there.

The next scheduled US performance of Pearl Jam is September 11 at Madison Square Garden in New York City and will run for a few more dates before wrapping up later in the month. See all of their upcoming shows on their website.
