Pearl Jam have announced a series of summer US dates as part of their 2018 live schedule. Following news that the group will play two shows in their hometown of Seattle this August to benefit homeless initiatives in the city, the band have confirmed an August 13 appearance at Missoula, Montana, as well as two nights at Chicago’s Wrigley Field (Aug 18 & 20) and a pair of Boston’s Fenway Park (Sep 2 & 4). Last fall, Pearl Jam released their concert film, “Let’s Play Two”, which was recorded over two shows at Wrigley Field.
Led Zeppelin will reissue their 2003 live set, How The West Was Won, on March 23rd. It features newly-remastered audio by guitarist Jimmy Page, and includes highlights from the band’s shows at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972, with the two nights sequenced to replicate a single concert from beginning to end. Upon its original release, the project debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200.
Jack White has announced a ban on cell phone use during his upcoming North American shows in support of his latest album, Boarding House Reach. Here’s how it’ll work: upon arrival at the venue, your phone or other video device will be secured in a pouch that will be unlocked at the end of the show. You keep your pouch-secured phone on you during the show and, if needed, can unlock your phone at any time in a designated unlocking zone located in the lobby or concourse of the venue. Jack plays Budweiser Stage in Toronto June 9th.
