LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Former Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder has announced that he's postponing his upcoming 15-date tour of North America, including his headlining billet at this year's Jazzfest.
According to a statement released by Vedder's manager, the tour has been put in hiatus due to temporary nerve damage in Vedder's right arm, stemming from a back injury he sustained earlier in the year.
Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis wrote, "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. Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets. Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form."
All of the dates have already been rescheduled and Glen Hansard (The Swell Season, The Frames) will provide support on all dates.
