Pearl Jam Tours East Coast Before, After Bonnaroo

William Goodman // March 20, 2008

Who: Reigning alt-rockers Pearl Jam return to the road, sandwiching their Bonnaroo appearance with ten East Coast dates. Kings of Leon and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists split the tour’s opening spots.

What: A 10-date jaunt ascending the East Coast from opening gig in West Palm Beach, FL June 11 to concluding set June 30 in Mansfield, MA.

Should I go: Absolutely. Pearl Jam rarely venture out of the headlining-a-festival slot nowadays, and to catch the band on tour is a must, especially considering the awesome opening acts.
