Having been strongly rumoured to play multiple UK festivals including Download and Sonisphere, grunge rock royalty Pearl Jam have indeed announced their return to the UK, but to play their own shows rather than festivals.
Eddie Vedder and friends have announced two UK shows as part of a wider European tour to take place next Summer, with the final two shows of the tour being right here in Blighty. Pearl Jam will take to the stage at the brand new Leeds Arena on July the 8th 2014, and then follow it up with a mega show at the Milton Keynes Bowl three days later on the 11th of July 2014.
