The Pearl Jam 1993 European/North American Tour was a concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam.

History[edit]

Pearl Jam embarked on this tour after completing the recording sessions for its second album, Vs.[1] The Europe leg included a few shows in which the band opened for U2 on the band's Zoo TV Tour, while both legs included several shows in which the band opened for Neil Young on his Harvest Moon tour.[2] Guitarist Mike McCready said that when the band opened for U2 in Europe the crowds hated Pearl Jam.[3] The short tour of North America focused on Canada and the West Coast of the United States. When the band opened for Neil Young, Young often brought the band out for encores to perform "Rockin' in the Free World".[4] Bassist Jeff Ament said that playing with Neil Young was "the most inspiring thing that we've ever been involved in."[5]
