Eddie Vedder Forced to Reschedule Solo Tour

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder announced on Thursday he is postponing his scheduled 15-city solo tour after treatments to repair nerve damage in his right arm were unsuccessful. Vedder suffered a back injury earlier this year that affects his right arm, which he uses to strum his guitar. The tour was set to begin Tuesday in Las Vegas but will now begin October 31st instead. All dates except Vedder's May 3rd gig at the New Orleans Heritage & Jazz Festival have been resceduled. Click Here for a complete list of rescheduled dates.








The tour, which was set to begin on April 10 in Las Vegas, will now begin on the last day of October. Curtis said Vedder had hoped "up until the last minute" that treatments would have allowed him to start the tour on time. The circumstances that led to the injury have not been disclosed.


"Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets," he said. "Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form."


Supporting his 2011 solo album, "Ukulele Songs," Vedder's tour now begins Oct. 31, fittingly, at the Pearl in Las Vegas, and will wrap up Nov. 28 in Orlando. The only stop that has been canceled outright is his May 3 engagement at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.


Tickets will be honored for rescheduled dates and refunds are available upon request. Swell Season singer Glen Hansard will open all the dates. (Check here for an updated list of dates.)


As previously reported, Pearl Jam is set for a European tour that begins June 20 in Manchester, U.K, and includes headlining gigs at the Isle of Wight (U.K.), Rock Werchter (Belgium) and Main Square (France) festivals, and additionally takes the band through the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and finishes in Denmark on July 10.
