Eddie Vedder tour 2022 announced: Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and his new solo band The Earthlings will embark on their first tour in early 2022, starting on February 3-4 at the Beacon Theatre in New York. The eight-concert tour, Vedder's first solo tour of the United States since 2012, will support his upcoming solo album, The Earthling, which will be released on February 11 via Seattle Surf/Republic.
As previously reported, Earthlings debuted live on September 24 at Vedder's Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California. The band features guitarist Andrew Watt (who also produced "Earthling"), multi-instrumentalists Josh Klinghoffer and Glen Hansard, and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith. The Who's bassist Pino Palladino played with the Earthlings at Ohana, but due to scheduling issues he will be replaced on the 2022 tour by Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney.
At Ohana, the Earthlings performed two Earthling songs ("Long Way," which is No. 10 on the Billboard Adult Alternative Airplay chart this week, and "The Haves"), played a handful of Pearl Jam songs ("Porch," "Corduroy"), and experimented with covers of the Pretenders' "Precious," Pete Townshend's "Give Blood" and the Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go," among others. Vedder has also performed several solo songs, including songs from the soundtrack of the 2007 Golden Globe-winning film Into the Wild.
Eddie Vedder will be touring in February to promote his forthcoming album Earthling and will be bringing his new band The Earthlings with him. The band will feature Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, bassist for Jane's Addiction Chris Chaney, former Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, guitarist/vocalist Glen Hansard and guitarist Andrew Watt.
Eddie Vedder and the Earthlings made their live debut on September 25 at the Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California. Their set included a handful of Vedder originals ("I'll Be Waiting," "Tender Mercies"), as well as several classic rock covers (The Who's "I'm One," The Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go") and a few Pearl Jam songs ("Better Man," "Corduroy"). The tour kicks off on February 3 at the Beacon Theater in New York City and ends on February 22 at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. Eddie Vedder 2022 tickets are sold on this site.
