Pearl Jam have announced their return to Australia, hot on the heels of the brilliantly received self titled 8th studio album.

The band will hit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in November, with a Perth date to be added shortly.

While album sales have dramatically reduced for Pearl Jam over their career, the band continue to sell out huge stadiums wherever they tour and Australia will be no different.

Supporting the band will be young American rock band Kings of Leon, who were last here earlier this year as part of the Big Day Out tour.

Dates so far are:

November 7 – Acer Arena (Formerly Sydney Superdome), Sydney
November 10 – Entertainment Center, Brisbane
November 13 – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
November 21 – Entertainment Center, Adelaide

If previous Pearl Jam tours are anything to go by, more dates will be added as they sell out. Last time Pearl Jam sold 100,000 tickets in one week.

Their latest album ‘Pearl Jam’ this week debuted at #2 on the Australian charts.
