Pearl Jam bassist not comfortable at indoor gigs

In some parts of the world, the pace of the pandemic has begun to slow to the point of introducing the return of some bands to the stage after just over a year without concerts, including the group Pearl Jam, whose bassist, Jeff Ament, he still has his doubts about going back to playing indoors.

Through a new interview on the podcast “Kyle Meredith With …”, Ament assures that he does not feel comfortable playing concerts where the place of the event “verifies the vaccination letter” of each of his attendees, in addition to sharing new details about the future plans of the band.

We have some things planned for next year. Hopefully this Delta variant and whatever happens to vaccines, we can turn the corner.

The Pearl Jam bassist notes that he still feels like he’s swaying with this whole thing. “If we go around the corner, hopefully we’ll get to late winter or early spring with a tour. We are eager to do so ”. The musician assures that all the concerts programmed by the band in the United States and Europe will take place in closed spaces.

“I do not know if I want to go to do 30 concerts where they are reviewing the vaccination letters,” said Ament, who hopes that people can be smart enough to lower the infection rate and, approximately in March, it will be safe enough to travel and feel good to be in a place with 20,000 other people.

Jeff Ament is preparing for the release of his fourth solo studio album, which is entitled “I Should Be Outside.” The Pearl Jam bassist will release this material on August 10th, being his new material since the surprise release of his EP “American Death Squad” last year.
