Shhhh…. the pre-sale for that opp
takes place tomorrow and ONLY tomorrow.

Just announced: a solo tour from Pearl Jam frontman Eddie
Vedder. While there are no real details yet about what form the tour will take
(what musicians will be with him, what songs he might play, etc.), it will be
primarily multiple-night stands on the East Coast and in the South, followed by
a swing out to Hawaii.
Opening act will be Liam Finn, who has previously toured with Vedder.
The tour kicks off June 8 in Albany and a presale for members of the Pearl
Jam fanclub (the Ten Club) will commence tomorrow, April 10. Members will be
eligible to buy one pair of tickets to just one show. And make sure you read
the fine print at the announcement on the site – something about when you do
the presale, you’re not actually guaranteed tickets, only an “opportunity” to
Ironically enough, this news item is only an opportunity to
find out details on the tour. It’s not an actual news item about the tour…
Memo to fans: some of the venues listed below are relatively
small, compared to the expected demand for tickets, so you might want to
consider signing up with the Ten Club right now, and… oops, too late! Deadline
for that was April 7. You blew it.
