Eddie Vedder will perform a series of European concert dates in June and July. Special guest Glen Hansard will support Vedder in 3Arena.
Eddie Vedder has served as Pearl Jam’s frontman since 1990. His debut solo release was the 2007 soundtrack album for the film Into the Wild for which Vedder won a Golden Globe for the song “Guaranteed.” In 2012, Vedder’s sophomore solo album, Ukulele Songs, received a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album. Vedder was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Pearl Jam on April 7, 2017.
Those who have followed Glen Hansard’s career since his Academy Award winning turn in the film Once will have witnessed one artistic arc: the journey of a Dublin busker who cut his teeth on the greats - Dylan, Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen – and followed the path of the troubadour to great effect. But there is another thread running through Hansard’s musicianship; in his decades as lead singer of Irish stalwarts The Frames, rock and folk ambitions coexisted with moments of strangeness, intimacy, and stillness. New album This Wild Willing, his fourth full-length album and a collection of songs that follows this second path, where he marries the sonic inventiveness of the best of his work in The Frames with the discipline he’s found as a songwriter and lyricist in his solo career.
