Grunge icons Pearl Jam have announced details of a huge tour of Europe and the United Kingdom next summer, including two nights at London’s O2 Arena.

The veteran rockers will be hitting the European continent in June 2018, with their tour kicking off in Amsterdam on the 12th, hitting a number of continental festivals before winding things up at Portugal’s NOS Alive Festival on July 14th.

They’ll be taking in two consecutive nights at London’s O2 Arena on the 18th and 19th of June, representing their only British gigs on the 14-date tour.
