Pearl Jam Cancel Immediate Shows After Jeff Ament Tests Positive For COVID-19


Grunge icons Pearl Jam have been forced to cancel the immediate dates of the current leg of their U.S. tour amid another positive COVID-19 case within the group. A statement issued by the outfit earlier today (May 18th) reads as follows:

“Important Cancelation Notice for Sacramento and Las Vegas

Dear PJ fans and ticket holders,

While the band battled through Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band got through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they now have to present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament has tested positive for Covid.

This is horrible for everybody involved and we are especially sorry to those out there who have made plans to attend these shows.

Our attention to staying inside the bubble has been constant. We have truly done all that we could have to remain clear of infection.

Regretfully, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled. Ticket refunds will be automatically processed to ticket holders’ method of purchase. We are so very sorry. Be safe out there.”
