Escape with Pearl Jam during their ‘Small Stage Series’ show at the Apollo Theater
Pearl Jam will perform at the historic Apollo Theater in a special invitation-only concert as part of SiriusXM’s Small Stage Series on Saturday, September 10th. The exclusive concert marks the first time Pearl Jam has performed at the iconic theatre and will be the first U.S. date of the band’s fall tour.
The show was originally planned around the release of the group’s critically acclaimed chart-topping eleventh full-length, Gigaton, originally released in 2020. In celebration of the album and subsequent tour, the band has released the revamped Gigaton (Tour Edition). It features 11 live songs recorded during the band’s triumphant return to the road in 2021.
The concert will air live nationwide on the band’s exclusive SiriusXM channel, Pearl Jam Radio (Ch. 22), where you can also hear Gigaton (Tour Edition).
