Pearl Jam Cancel Two Shows After Jeff Ament Tests Positive For COVID-19

Pearl Jam have cancelled their upcoming shows in Sacramento, CA and Las Vegas, NV due to bassist Jeff Ament testing positive for COVID-19. He is the second member to test positive following drummer Matt Cameron, who recently had to miss some shows with the band.

The group issued the following statement:

“Important Cancelation Notice for Sacramento and Las Vegas

Dear PJ fans and ticket holders,

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.

This is horrible for everybody involved and we are especially sorry to those out there who have made plans to attend these shows.

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. We are so very sorry. Be safe out there.”
