Great news for music lovers! Two legends, on one stage.
Pearl Jam frontman, Eddie Vedder has announced a Dublin date for the 3Arena as part of his European tour.
This European tour kicks off June 9th and he'll be coming to Dublin July 3rd. Playing support for this gig will be none other than Irish singer/ songwriter, Oscar winner and all round good guy for his work with Home Sweet Home Glen Hansard.
Hansard will be playing support for several of Vedder's European shows. This musical pairing is becoming commonplace at this point. Back in Summer 2017, Hansard also played support to Vedder's Dublin gig in the 3Areana.
Eddie Vedder has been Pearl Jam's frontman since 1990 and a part of the Seatle music grunge scene in the 90s. Over his career, he has also had huge success as solo artist including the beautiful and haunting soundtrack for the film Into The Wild.
Glen Hasard has had major success in his own right both as frontman for his band The Frames and for his solo projects. One of these solo projects was the film "Once" which he starred in as well as creating the soundtrack. A soundtrack which can only be described as a work of art.
It's not surprising these two musicians have come together finding common ground. The soundtrack to Into The Wild and Once are up there with the greatest movie soundtracks of all time.
These two artists will not disappoint, but tickets are sure to be snapped up fast, so don't miss out. Tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster next Friday, March 22nd at 9 am. The pre-sale for current members of Pearl Jam's Ten Club starts today for select dates. Details for this can be found at pearljam.com.
The best thing about Irish summer is yes the brief moments of sunshine but also the gigs and this year is shaping up nicely. Earlier this week, the line up for Electric Picnic was announced with The Strokes, Florence and the Machine and Hozier headlining. It was also announced that the tickets for All Together Now on the August Bank Holiday weekend have sold out.
