In 2005, Pearl Jam toured Canada extensively, performing in seventeen cities nationwide. The band cemented a special relationship with their Canadian fans, selling out arenas coast to coast. 

2011 will be a yearlong celebration of Pearl Jam's rich twenty-year history. The band kicked off the year with the release of a new live compilation album, Live on Ten Legs, followed by expanded reissues of Vs. and Vitalogy in March.

In addition to this Canadian tour, September brings Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary weekend concert to Alpine Valley followed by the debut of Cameron Crowe's film, Pearl Jam Twenty, accompanied by the release of a book and soundtrack album. Interspersed between these PJ20 highlights will be a number of special events.
