LONDON SHOW CANCELLATION

NEWS JUNE 28 2024

The Pearl Jam concert scheduled for Saturday, June 29th at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London has regrettably been canceled due to illness in the band.

This decision was the last thing we wanted to have to make, especially as we know so many of you made travel plans based on the tour schedule. There was simply no other option based on our current health and also having to avoid further damage.

We couldn’t be more disappointed to not play one of our favorite cities this tour. Despite best efforts, rescheduling was not possible at this time due to existing schedule commitments.  

We are deeply grateful for your support and sincerely apologize to the incredible Pearl Jam community for the inconvenience and disappointment.

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

Falling down,...not staying down

    Feel like Im jinxed - this is the 3rd PJ show I got tickets for that's been cancelled. London 2018, Amsterdam 2022 and now this!

    Gutted - please consider a UK fan club only show - priority for those who got tickets for this show. Give us something here!

    I would have got tickets to Manchester or Ireland but prices were SO HIGH I couldnt justify the cost.

    Same here, London in 2018 and now.  Another £400 in flights and accommodation down the pan!

    Sheesh.  Tough run of luck for Europe shows the last several years.
    I've seen quite a few Pearl Jam shows.

    If the concerts in Berlin are cancelled, please inform the fans in good time and not one hour before admission as in Amsterdam, for example!
    Thanks!

    It’s my fourth cancellation and also two I missed because I had Covid. I’ve now not seen them more times than I have. Lots of admin fee £££ down the pan and hotels etc. shambola.

    Yeah, it's a sore one for sure for many of us. £350 in hotels and travel down the drain and nothing I can do about it. Fingers crossed Barcelona #2 goes ahead as that will be considerably more ££$$ wasted if it's canned.

    London 2018, Amsterdam and Prague 2022 and now this, I’m sure they didn’t want to pull it but man it’s fucking starting to sting as it’s happening more often these days, like many others it’s a shitload of money we’ve lost on travel and accommodation, and the fact they’re not even rescheduling is the fart on top of a pretty shitty cake …. Fucking gutted ( again)

    I sure hope this means that they'll be able to pull Berlin off and the rest of the tour...otherwise they should pull the plug now on the rest of the shows. I can't believe this...last tour I had Vienna and now Berlin seems unsure...

    Gutted. Now had London 18, Prague 22, Amsterdam 1 22 and London 24 cancelled. Plus three shows where EV was struggling (London 1 18, Amsterdam 2 22 and Manchester 24). Just hoping that given these cancellations we see the band return next year to the U.K. and the Netherlands and in good venues. A 2025 arena (non stadium) tour in the core European markets of the U.K., Netherlands, Germany and Italy would be ideal

    Was diagnosed with cancer in November 2023. Had surgery in Feb 2024, but it's inoperable. Probably got 2-3 years at best so started my bucket list and seeing my favourite band was the first thing I wanted to do, so really gutted. Just praying they'll be back next year! Having said that, I know there's nothing you can do about it, and just hope Eddie's OK, he's a top man! Peace and love x

    It's not nice but it's life . What really grinds my gears is the cash grab.
    Merch opens at 12.. 200 people purchase expensive merch.
    1 pm show cancelled. If you are going to cancel do it at 12 and give these people a choice. With the known information to decide to not buy anything. It's just wrong. I can't defend that

    If they start charging like the big ones they should be as professional. The Stones for example are staying in a very close bubble. No pub recommendation calls to Glen Hansard about where to have the best beer after the show…

    The amout of cancelled shows in Europe recently can‘t be just bad luck.

    Love this idea. 

    But if it did happen, make it somewhere with a decent capacity like Brixton Academy so we can all get in. Not a tiny venue where we're fighting each other for a ticket.

    Sorry to hear. Really hope they come back next year for a U.K., Netherlands, Italy run and you get to see them. Fingers crossed

    Very sorry to hear that Ed (or someone else in the band) got ill. Hope for a speedy and pleasant recovery. 

    As others mentioned, please inform about Berlin in due time. As there are no shows in countries like Denmark, Netherlands, Poland, France, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy or Switzerland Berlin serves as a hub for many fans from these places (and I'm sure the plan to go to Berlin for two shows was designed for that) people will surely welcome a timely notice. 

    Cost of living skyrocketed in Europe. Will be surely nice for some folks to be able to perhaps cancel travel and accommodation and don't lose much money.

    London - so sorry!  I've been through this with PJ 3 times since Covid, so I can empathize with the frustration, anger, lost money, etc.  Definitely hope the band gets healthy and feels better, but as a fan, it just blows.  Hopefully another London date is scheduled soon.  I am planning to see the boys in Indy and at Ohana, but I never believe it's going to happen anymore until the first chord is played.  Stay safe!

    I mean they had a choice. Show or not, the people already there probably would have purchased either way. I know I would have in Sacramento even after they cancelled. I actually applaud them for not shutting it down and leaving people empty handed like I and others experienced in the heat all damn day when Sac was cancelled.
