One of the worst-kept secrets of the 2016 festival circuit is officially confirmed: Pearl Jam will headline this year's Bonnaroo. A week after the full lineup seemingly leaked online, the legendary rock outlet announced a full summer tour on Tuesday (Jan. 19), including a show at the Manchester, Tennessee, festival and stops in 17 other North American cities.
Pearl Jam will hit the road beginning on April 8 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for a 21 show tour, Pitchfork reports. In addition to the Bonnaroo date, Pearl Jam will also perform at this year's New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 23 and offer up shows in Miami, Toronto and Philadelphia. Though Pearl Jam will be keeping it to one show per city, the band is slated for dual appearances in New York, Boston and Chicago.
