Pearl Jam announced on March 9 that their upcoming tour in support of their new album 'Gigaton' would be postponed. In a statement, the band said, "We’ve worked hard with all our management and business associates to find other solutions or options but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level. Add to that we also have a unique group of passionate fans who travel far and wide. We’ve always been humbled by this and respect their energies and devotion. However in this case, travel is something to avoid."
Over The Phone!
So, you’re a Pearl Jam fan with a cell phone?
You can hear the new “Gigaton” album in snippets by calling a phone number based out of… Rochester, NY.
Fans can call 585-20-PEARL (585-207-3275) for the chance to hear songs off the new album, dropping March 27th (this Friday).
You’ll hear a recording asking if you want to “leave a message” or if you “opt in, you can hear songs from the new album”.
Have at it!
