Pearl Jam has announced plans for a two-leg, twenty-four date North American tour this fall. Leg one kicks off in Pittsburgh on October 11 and wraps in New Orleans with the band's previously announced headlining performance at Voodoo Music + Arts Experience during the weekend of November 1. The second leg of the tour commences in Dallas on November 15 and closes in the band’s hometown of Seattle on December 6.
That's all fine and good, but where the hell is the new album news????! A countdown clock has been promising exciting things for several days now, and while a tour is always great news an announced follow-up to 2009's Backspacer was the news most fans were really keeping their fingers crossed for. However, a new countdown clock has replaced the old one on PJ's official site, and we may have more to discuss on Thursday...
