Rock fans in Denmark woke up to the tantalising news today that US icons Pearl Jam will perform in Copenhagen next year.
Eddie Vedder and company will be undoubtedly be busting out hit classics like ‘Jeremy’, ‘Daughter’, ‘Alive’, ‘Even Flow’ and ‘Black’ at the Royal Arena on June 29 as part of their European tour.
It’s the first time the Seattle-based band performs in Denmark since they put on a show at Forum in 2012. The band has sold over 85 million albums worldwide.
A tale of tragedy
Pearl Jam has a bittersweet relationship with Denmark following the tragedy at Roskilde Festival in 2000, which left nine fans crushed to death during their packed concert on opening night.
In a recent documentary, the band members revealed that it is a day they will never forget and they are still coming to grips with the sorrow. Three Danes, three Swedes, one German, one Dutchman and one Australian died in front of the stage as 50,000 fans pushed to get closer. They were all male, aged 17-26.
