The Pearl Jam 2012 Tour was a concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam.[1] The first leg of the tour consisted of thirteen shows in Europe, including a headling appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival.[2][3] American punk band X were the opening band for the arena shows.[4] Due to high ticket demand for pre-sale tickets, the third-party website handling the sale had to be taken offline. The Pearl Jam fanclub cited "an act of sabotage" to the site.[5] For the second show at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, a fan of the band created the setlist.[6]

In May 2012, Pearl Jam announced they were playing three festival dates in the US, including a headling slot at Jay-Z's Made in America Music Festival.[7][8][9] In June 2012, the band announced they would be playing at the Adams Centre in Missoula, Montana.[10] This is scheduled to be the band's only non-festival show in the United States in 2012.[11]

At the Made in America Festival, Pearl Jam were joined onstage by Jay Z to perform the song "99 Problems".[12][13] For their appearance at Made In America, the band earned $2 million.[14] Some of the footage of Pearl Jam's set featured in the 2013 documentary film Made in America, directed by Ron Howard.[15]
