Pearl Jam canceled the final shows on their current U.S. tour after the band’s bassist Jeff Ament tested positive for Covid.
The final two shows of the tour were scheduled to be held in Sacramento on May 18 and in Las Vegas on May 20.
“While the band battled through Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band got through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they now have to present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament has tested positive for COVID,” Pearl Jam said in a statement posted on social media.
The band added, “Our attention to staying inside the bubble has been constant. We have truly done all that we could have to remain clear of infection. Regretfully, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled.”
Ticket refunds will be automatically processed to ticket holders’ method of purchase.
Pearl Jam is set to kick off their European tour with a performance at the Netherlands’ Pinkpop Festival on June 18.
