Pearl Jam are set to return to Australia for the first time in a decade as part of their Dark Matter World Tour, which coincides with a new album.

Their 12th studio album, also titled ‘Dark Matter,’ is set to drop on April 19, while the global tour is slated for November, which includes dates in Australia and New Zealand.

Perth fans, look away now.

Pearl Jam Australian Tour November 2024:

Wednesday, 13th November — Gold Coast, Heritage Bank Stadium
Saturday, 16th November — Melbourne, Marvel Stadium
Thursday, 21st November — Sydney, Giants Stadium

Frontman Eddie Vedder, speaking at a recent Grammys week listening party in LA, expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming album, describing it as a culmination of their best efforts: “We still care about putting something out there that is meaningful and we hopefully think is our best work. No hyperbole, I think this is our best work.”

Perth Pearl Jam fans:

Tickets will be available two ways:

Members of the band’s official fan club, Ten Club, will have exclusive access to a presale via Ticketmaster Request.

You can also register for the Dark Matter World Tour 2024 registration sale, the sole method for general fans to participate in the ticket sale. Registration, however, does not guarantee access, with the deadline set for Sunday, February 18, at 11.59pm local time.

So Perth, we’ll keep you updated if this changes… if not, as usual:

Le sigh.

Here’s the single…
