Pearl Jam Announces Apollo Theater Concert For SiriusXM & Pandora
Pearl Jam will make their debut at the Apollo Theater in New York City on March 26 with a special invitation-only concert for SiriusXM subscribers and Pandora listeners. The show marks the band’s first in the U.S. of 2020 and return to NYC after almost three years.
A live broadcast of the concert will air on SiriusXM’s Pearl Jam Radio (Channel 22). Following the show, Pearl Jam Radio will premiere the band’s new album, Gigaton. “We are incredibly humbled and honored to take the stage at the legendary Apollo Theater,” said PJ guitarist Stone Gossard. “We look forward to a memorable show to celebrate Gigaton and the 10-year anniversary of Pearl Jam Radio at SiriusXM. It’s hard to understate the sacred and historical importance of the Apollo to the history of American popular music and African Americans’ preeminent role in its invention. We will play this special one time show with those artists in mind.”
“Pearl Jam Radio has become a must-listen-to destination to hear live concerts performed and chosen by one of the greatest live rock acts ever,” added Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. “For the first time, we are thrilled to be able to offer our subscribers the exclusive opportunity to attend and listen to this great band’s first show at the historic Apollo Theater, which will kick off Pearl Jam’s massive U.S. tour promoting their new album. Seeing the band in this intimate setting is certain to be a once in a lifetime experience that all Pearl Jam fans won’t want to miss.”
Subscribers will have multiple opportunities to score tickets to the private concert. Tickets will be given away on-air by Pearl Jam Radio, via e-mail “to qualified subscribers who have consented to e-mail marketing from SiriusXM and who have registered their music interests at siriusxm.com/perks” and as part of a contest for a trip for two to NYC that includes airfare, hotel stay and tickets.
