Pearl Jam fans that were keeping up with a countdown clock on the band's website got some big news yesterday when time ran out.
The band announced it will commence a 24-date North American tour on Oct. 11 in Pennsylvania, which includes a stop in Worcester at the DCU Center on Oct. 15.
After the tour was announced, the clock reset with an end date of Thursday, July 11 at noon. This time the announcement could (emphasis on the could here, we don't know for sure) be new music.
Pearl Jam drummer Stone Gossard told Billboard Magazine in May that the group is close to releasing a new album, it's tenth in the studio.
What do you think of the tour news? Plan on going to the show? Let us know in the comments.
