Formed in Seattle in 1990, Pearl Jam were one of the pioneers of the alternative rock movement that changed music forever. Lead by the reluctant superstar front man Eddie Vedder, their breakout debut album Ten, which turned 30 last year, had a lasting impact on the scene, achieving the group mainstream success. They’ve inspired countless bands with their hits, including ‘Black’, ‘Jeremy’, ‘ Alive’ and ‘Rearviewmirror’.
They’ve also been hugely commercially successful with more than 85 million albums sold worldwide and they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, which was their first year of eligibility.
Joining Pearl Jam on Friday 8th June are fellow US rock legends, Pixies. Formed in 1986, Pixies have inspired a wealth of bands since including Nirvana, Radiohead, two past BST Hyde Park headliners The Strokes and Blur – and even a future one, Pearl Jam. Renowned for their incredible live shows, fronted by the mesmeric Black Francis, guitarist Joey Santiago, David Lowering and Paz Lenchantin, this your chance to hear ‘Debaser’, ‘Gigantic’, ‘Here Comes Your Man’ and ‘Where Is My Mind?’ in all their glory plus newer songs from their 2019 album Beneath The Eyrie.
Idles, who join the bill on on Saturday 9th June, have risen to become one of the most talked about acts in rock, in the last few years. The British indie rockers debut album, 'Brutalism', was released in 2017 to critical acclaim. The band have gone on to release a further three albums, including 'Crawler' which arrived in November 2021.
