LEGENDARY ROCKERS TO PLAY SHOWS IN GREENVILLE, COLUMBIA
Pearl Jam – the most influential rock-n-roll band to emerge from the early-1990s grunge movement – will play two shows in the Palmetto State on its 2016 North American tour this spring.
The Seattle, Washington-based band will appear at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C. on Saturday, April 16. Five days later, on Thursday April 21, the band will perform at the Colonial Life Center in downtown Columbia, S.C.

If you’ve never seen the band live before, don’t miss this chance.
Pearl Jam plays long, loud and hard … in fact we when saw them in Charlotte, the band played until the arena managers turned on the house lights. And then kept playing. Lead guitarist Mike McCready looked as though he would have played all night if they had let him.
McCready – along with lead singer Eddie Vedder, rhythm guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament – are founding members of the band. They’ve been playing together since 1990, and have released ten albums – the latest of which is 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
Here’s “Sirens,” our favorite song off that album …
