Pearl Jam have postponed tonight’s (Tuesday 19th June) London show at The O2 after singer Eddie Vedder lost his voice.
The Seattle rockers posted a statement on social media this afternoon saying Eddie is “on vocal rest for the next few days” and they hope to honour their remaining tour dates.
The full heartfelt post reads: “Pearl Jam are very sorry to announce that they will be unable to perform tonight’s show at the O2 Arena in London. The band is working on rescheduling the concert date for mid-July.
“Singer Eddie Vedder has completely lost his voice. He is on vocal rest for the next few days in an effort to heal and perform the remainder of the tour dates.
“It’s the first time ever having to postpone a show for this reason. Ed and the band are gutted thinking of all the folks who have travelled and made plans.
“Sending their biggest apologies out to everyone. And huge gratitude for all the continued support.
“Tickets for tonight’s show will be valid and transferable to the rescheduled concert date. Expect more information soon. Please contact your point of purchase for all other public ticket enquiries. Ten Club ticket holders will be contacted directly in the coming days.
“Pearl Jam’s European tour is expected to resume Friday, June 22nd in Milan.”
Pearl Jam played a typically epic 27-song set on their opening London The O2 show last night.
