Peral Jam‘s Eddie Vedder has postponed some of his North American tour dates due to an injury.
The frontman had been due to kick off a shows in Las Vegas on April 10. The gigs will now take place this fall because of temporary nerve damage to the rocker’s right arm as the result of a back injury. His show at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival has been cancelled outright.
A statement by Pearl Jam’s manager Kelly Curtis on Pearljam.com stated:
“After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled. There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful.”
Vedder released his solo album “Ukelele Songs”, last year.
Last month Stone Gossard, Pearl Jam guitarist, gave an update on their progress in recording their 10th studio album. The guitarist said that the band are “not in a rush”, but that they may only be “a song or two away” from finishing.
Gossard said to Rolling Stone, “We’ve recorded some songs, and we’re going to record and write some more. It might be that we’re a song away or two, or it might be that we’re going to record six or seven more songs.”
