Pearl Jam to Play ‘Saturday Night Live’

Plus: Peep some classic footage of the Seattle rockers' previous appearances on the show!

Pearl Jam is set to play Saturday Night Live on March 13, playing songs from their recent No. 1 record, 2009’s Backspacer.

It’s certainly not the first time Vedder and the gang — who scored Artist of the Year and Album of the Year titles in SPIN’s 2009 Readers’ Poll — have played SNL: Check out footage of the Seattle band’s epic performance of “Alive” from 1992, plus a 1994 rehearsal of “Not For You” below.

Though tickets to catch Saturday Night Live are hard to come by — most tickets are distributed once a year, in August –standby tix for the show and dress rehearsal may be available at 7 A.M. on the day of the show. (Details are available here.)
