Open'er is proud to announce that it's second headliner for 2014 is Pearl Jam.
The rock music legends will join fellow headliners The Black Keys in Gydnia, Poland at one of Europe's best music festivals in July. Pusha T has also been confirmed for the festival.
Pearl Jam announced today that they will embark on an eleven-date European tour in June and July of 2014. The band's summer tour kicks off on June 16th in Amsterdam, NL, and wraps up on July 11th in Milton Keynes, UK, including just two festival headlining slots (including Open'er Festival on July 3rd).
Pearl Jam released their much-anticipated tenth studio album, Lightning Bolt, on Monkeywrench Records/Republic Records on October 15, 2013 in the United States. Internationally, the album was released on October 14, 2013 and distributed by Universal Music Group International. Produced by Brendan O'Brien, Lightning Bolt marks Pearl Jam's first studio album since the highly acclaimed Backspacer, which was released in September of 2009.
Lightning Bolt debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart as well as #1 on iTunes in over 50 countries. The album is available now at www.pearljam.com, via iTunes and all major retailers.
In 1991, Pearl Jam's debut album, Ten, catapulted the little-known Seattle-based band into superstardom. Ten studio albums, hundreds of unique live performances and hundreds of official live concert bootleg releases later, the band continue to be critically acclaimed and commercially successful -- with over 60 million albums sold worldwide.
In 2011, Pearl Jam celebrated their 20-year anniversary with a destination weekend in Alpine Valley, WI and toured Canada, South America, Central America, and Mexico. The band also released the film Pearl Jam Twenty along with an accompanying book and soundtrack as part of the anniversary celebration.
