The huge US band has been announced as the first headliners for London’s BST Hyde Park Festival 2021, and will be supported by two huge guests; Pixies on the 9 July, and Idles on 10 July.
And if you had tickets to this year’s cancelled show, you’re guaranteed tickets if you rebook and will gain priority access to see both shows with a ‘two day ticket’ – plus there’s even a payment plan if you want to pay over several months.
Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, says, “We couldn’t be happier to be back and we can’t wait to bring everyone together with BST Hyde Park 2021, for what could be the most memorable British Summer Time ever…
“Pearl Jam jumped at the chance to celebrate after having to cancel their show this year and we are honoured that they agreed to play two consecutive nights, a first for BST.
“As their fans know, they are the perfect artists for such an unprecedented double bill.”
Glastonbury will be back next June and not delayed until autumn, says organiser Emily Eavis.
