Eddie Vedder is heading back to the London area for the first time since Pearl Jam performed at the Milton Keynes Bowl in July 2014.
The band’s frontman will be performing two shows at Eventim Apollo on 6 and 7 June as part of a European solo tour that kicks off in Amsterdam and ends in Sicily a month later.
Tickets go on sale on 10 March.
Vedder, whose last solo album was 2011’s Grammy-nominated ‘Ukuklele Songs’, will be supported by special guest Glen Hansard.
Although Vedder is best known as the singer for the Seattle grunge pioneers who, since 1990, have released 10 studio LPs, sold over 60 million albums, and won two Grammy Awards, he’s also stepped out on his own.
His debut solo release was the 2007 soundtrack of the Sean Penn-directed film ‘Into The Wild’, which won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song.
“I think for some reason it might be more difficult to tell a story in a band song,” said Vedder in 2011, comparing his solo work with Pearl Jam’s music.
“Every time we accomplish that, the outcome seems to be positive, in terms of how it connects to people who hear it. This, there’s so much room for it.”
