Pearl Jam have announced their first tour dates for 2018, revealing runs of shows in South America, Europe and the U.K. It follows a year of downtime while frontman Eddie Vedder pursued solo interests, guitarist Mike McCready recording movie scores, and drummer Matt Cameron concentrating on Soundgarden activities plus solo work. Watch a short trailer above.

The band recently released concert movie Let’s Play Two, which was recorded at Wrigley Field, the home of the Chicago Cubs baseball team, midway through their historic 2016 season that saw them securing the championship for the first time in 108 years. Longtime fan Vedder was seen busking outside the venue a few months ago.

Pearl Jam were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, giving Vedder a platform on which to discuss some of his most closely-felt issues. “Climate change is real,” he said. “That is not fake news. And we cannot, we cannot be the generation the history of the world will look back on and wonder why they didn't do everything humanly possible to solve the biggest crisis in our time. Anything can be obtainable. The Chicago Cubs winning the World Series. This is proof. And I use that analogy because, in regards to climate change, because it can be done, but here's the thing, we don't have 108 years to wait.”
