Eddie Vedder invites you to tiptoe tulips with him. After focusing on his main group last year with a 20th anniversary party, a Cameron Crowe documentary and a new song, the frontman of Pearl Jam will go back on his own to support the 2011 Grammy-nominated feature. Ukulele songs.
A 13-city spring solo tour will take Vedder to theaters from Las Vegas on April 11 to Orlando, Fla. On May 16, as well as a stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 3. Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard, folk-rock duo The Swell Season and roots rockers The Frames. (Hansard has also been known to perform on occasion with Brooklyn-via-Idaho folkie and Novelist endorsed by Stephen King Josh Ritter, with So run away from the world you might also like.)
Tickets for the New Orleans Jazz Fest are on sale now. All other tickets for Vedder’s upcoming tour go on sale February 3, although eligible Pearl Jam’s Ten Club members can purchase them via presale starting yesterday.
