For the first time in the band’s history, Pearl Jam have cancelled a show because Eddie Vedder lost his voice.
Following the first of 2 shows at London’s O2 Arena, the band announced the postponement via Twitter – promising to reschedule the concert in the next few weeks with all tickets still valid.
Thankfully, Pearl Jam knows that to see one of their shows isn’t another regular concert – and there are probably a lot of disappointed fans. Hopefully Vedder gets his voice back to continue with PJ’s jam-packed summer, which includes a show in Missoula, Montana in August. We already know of a few Drive listener’s (and employees) who have plans to go to that show.
Check out their statement below, which is very sincere.
