PEARL JAM TO HONOR BLACK MUSICAL HEROES AT APOLLO

Pearl Jam will perform at Harlem’s hallowed Apollo Theater in a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners on 3/26, just ahead of the release of the band’s new Monkeywrench/Republic album, Gigaton.

The concert with air live on Pearl Jam Radio (channel 22). Immediately afterward, the band will premiere Gigaton on the channel. Concurrenly, Pandora will release a new Pearl Jam Live: A-Z playlist and a Pandora Story featuring takes from bandmembers.

"We’re incredibly humbled and honored to take the stage at the legendary Apollo Theater,” said Stone Gossard. “We look forward to a memorable show to celebrate Gigaton and the 10-year anniversary of Pearl Jam Radio at SiriusXM. It’s hard to understate the sacred and historical importance of the Apollo to the history of American popular music and African Americans' preeminent role in its invention. We will play this special one-time show with those artists in mind."

Scott Greenstein delivered his official quote while shredding on air guitar. “Pearl Jam Radio has become a must-listen-to destination to hear live concerts performed and chosen by one of the greatest live rock acts ever,” said SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “For the first time, we are thrilled to be able to offer our subscribers the exclusive opportunity to attend and listen to this great band’s first show at the historic Apollo Theater, which will kick off Pearl Jam’s massive U.S. tour promoting their new album. Seeing the band in this intimate setting is certain to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that Pearl Jam fans won’t want to miss.”

Pearl Jam is the eighth act to perform at the Apollo for SiriusXM, following Paul McCartney (2010), Bruce Springsteen (2012), Metallica (2013), James Taylor (2015), Guns N' Roses (2017), U2 (2018) and Lady Gaga (2019).
