Pearl Jam in South America in November?

by Kathy Davis on May 15, 2011

Talk of Pearl Jam touring South America has long been rumored – in fact, we first reported of it nearly a year ago in this news article. It seems the rumors are thisclose to being actually true – two more South American websites have named specific dates for shows in November – the 18th in Lima, Peru and 14th in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  A third date had previously been mentioned by publication La Tercera for Chile at the “end of September”, though it seems perhaps plans may have been revised considering the strength of the November dates -considering they are based on announcements from representatives of Time4Fun, the South American promoter. Either that or it’s going to be quite a long tour! A September date also conflicts with the suspected September “great white north” mention in the PJ20/tour tweet recently posted).  Pearl Jam had such a successful run of shows in 2005, it’s long past time they head down to that spectacular continent.

Fernando Moya, director of T4F entertainment area confirmed to the newspaper The Chronicle that Pearl Jam will play in Argentina next November 14 after (their) first visit in 2005. Eddie Vedder’s band will tour South America for the time has confirmed dates in Chile and Brazil.

The other will return to play in our country after ten years is no more and no less than Eric Clapton, also in River. The blues will perform well in Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro. The complete trilogy confirmations Aerosmith, the band visited us several times, but he canceled last year the date was scheduled at the Hippodrome of San Isidro, on the problems faced by Steven Tyler.

These three shows have in common that will be organized by the Brazilian company and also that are designed to perform in the stadium of River, despite a recent agreement it signed with the club Pop Art Society-Phoenix Entertainment Group for the exclusive use of Monumental until 2013. Although T4F representative in Argentina warned that despite the contract expired on Dec. 31, were pending to be done three shows, which are claimed by the producer and presentations that would be Pearl Jam, Eric Clapton and Aerosmith.

It is worth mentioning that for the moment continues the provision in the River stage to perform their shows with the audience sitting around, so we infer that for these concerts will have the entire audience sat.
