The wait is over, Pearl Jam fans – well, kind of. For those of you who’ve been waiting patiently to see what the countdown clock on the grunge legends’ website revealed, today has brought both an answer and more questions, with the announcement of a 2013 tour…and a second countdown clock.
The tour dates kick off in October and takes Eddie Vedder and friends to almost every conceivable corner of the ol’ US of A you can think of. The schedule wraps up at the start of December, so let’s cross our fingers that the Seattlites have plans to bring the show down to the southern hemisphere for our summer.
As for the new countdown, it ends in three days from the time of publication and surely it will bring news of a new album or single from Pearl Jam – please, guys? Perhaps it’s the oft-rumoured Mind Your Manners single that cropped up on a music listing site last month, with the leak showing a release date of 16th July. Any new material from the boys would be the first since 2009’s Backspacer.
