Pearl Jam announces first Seattle concert in 4 years

It's been nearly four years since Pearl Jam last played a concert in the band's home town. But the drought is ending as Pearl Jam announced Monday a Seattle show will cap a two-leg, twenty-four date North American tour this fall.

The December 6 KeyArena concert will end the tour, which kicks-off in Pittsburgh on October 11. Along with the Seattle concert - the first in town since the band last played there Sept. 22, 2009 - the tour also has stops in Portland at the Rose Garden Nov. 29 and in Spokane Nov. 30.

Tickets go on-sale to the general public Saturday, July 27 at 10:00 a.m.

A special ticket pre-sale drawing for current Pearl Jam Ten Club members began Monday.
