Pearl Jam make it official. They'll be celebrating their 20th anniversary with their very own music festival... but it's not in Seattle as you might expect.
The Labor Day weekend event will take place at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI on September 3rd and 4th and will include performances by The Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, Mudhoney, John Doe, Joseph Arthur, Glen Hansard, Liam Finn and special guests to be announced. It will be followed by a ten-date Canadian tour.
In addition to these live shows, the band will release a Cameron Crowe-directed film, Pearl Jam Twenty, which captures the band's journey over its twenty years, along with an accompanying book and soundtrack album this fall.
Pearl Jam will tour Canada from September 7th through 25th -- hitting Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver.
