Bay State Of Love & Trust: Pearl Jam to play two nights at Fenway Park this summer

Last summer, Zac Brown Band covered Pearl Jam’s “Porch” at Fenway Park. It was a nice gesture, playing to the years of rumors that the Seattle grunge survivors would be one day playing the home of the Boston Red Sox.

This summer, the decade-old rumors and whispers finally become reality: Pearl Jam will play two shows at Fenway Park, August 5 and 7, the same month that debut album Ten turns 25 years old. Part of a larger summer tour, Eddie Vedder and company will also play Chicago’s Wrigley Field on August 20 and 22.

The news follows word last week that Billy Joel will play the ballpark on August 18.

Some ticket info: “A special ticket pre-sale drawing for all dates except the festival and stadium dates starts today for current Ten Club members (as of Monday, January 18th). Memberships purchased after Monday, January 18th are not eligible for the Ten Club pre-sale drawing for any of the shows listed below including the shows in Boston and Chicago.”
