Pearl Jam concert chronology

The Pearl Jam 2008 United States Tour was a concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam.

History[edit]

The tour of the United States consisted of thirteen dates which focused on the East Coast.[1] The tour included a headlining appearance on June 14, 2008 at the Bonnaroo Music Festival.[2] Pearl Jam's set at the festival overran by one hour, causing the next act, Kanye West, to take the stage at 4:25 a.m. local time.[3] This was the band's only tour scheduled for 2008. After the tour had concluded, the band played a private benefit show at the Beacon Theatre in New York, which raised $3 million for the Robin Hood Foundation.[4]

Official bootlegs are available for this tour through the band's official website in FLAC, MP3, and CD formats.[5]
