If you're struggling to keep it together this summer without being able to go to concerts, Pearl Jam has you covered.
After being forced to postpone the Gigaton Tour due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Pearl Jam is trying to make it up to fans who are missing out on going to shows by joining the remote-concert business.
On Tuesday (August 11), the Seattle legends announced they'll be streaming the full unreleased footage of their iconic August 8, 2018 concert at Seattle's Safeco Field — the show was one of two the band performed on their home turf.
“Whoohoo! I was there to see that live. Can't wait to see it again,” one fan commented on Instagram while another said, “Yay! Clapping hands sign Just what I/we need!”
The show will air on nugs.net September 4 and last through Labor Day Weekend. The hometown show will feature a 33-song setlist, including covers of songs by The Beatles and The White Stripes and features an appearance by Brandi Carlile.
The show will be on a Pay-Per-View basis and costs $14.99. Pearl Jam Ten Club members will receive “special pricing.” Super fans can also subscribe to Nugs and watch over 400 Pearl Jam concerts as well as 15,000 live shows from other artists.

At the time of publishing, Pearl Jam has not confirmed new North American tour dates and released a statement about it when it was originally announced: “We are working as fast as we can with all our partners to confirm new dates in a fluid situation. We ask you to please refrain from contacting venues and promoters as they will not have any additional information to provide you.”
