Ten Club tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Pre-sale tickets are first-come, first-serve, while supplies last. Pre-sales for any available tickets will remain open until Thursday, March 18th at 5pm PST.

NEW PRE-SALE RULE!!!!!!! Once you have a pair of tickets in your shopping cart you must complete the check out process within 10 minutes of placing them in your shopping cart, otherwise you run the risk of those tickets being dumped back into stock and going to the next member in line. 

 

Pre-Sale Tips:

Test out logging in to your account in the days leading up to the pre-sale. Use this time to update old address info, add a billing address to your profile if you are using someone else's card to purchase the tickets, visit the goods page so you know the location of where you'll want to navigate when the pre-sale time arrives.  For those of you extremely new to the world of online shopping, we suggest purchasing a $1 sticker to familiarize yourself with the website purchasing procedure.

On the sale day, login to your account minutes before the specified pre-sale cuts down on the time it takes to navigate to the tickets page from the home page.

DO NOT LOGIN USING MULTIPLE COMPUTERS!!!!! This creates a bottle neck of web traffic which can result in site failure and loss of ticket order. We can not stress this one enough. 

"Temporarily Out of Stock" means that all available tickets have been placed into shopping carts.  In this situation, the best thing to do is to keep refreshing the page. Should a member decide not to complete the transaction, or should the transactions time out after 10 minutes, that pair of tickets will go back into stock and the "buy" button will reappear on that ticket page.  The first person to hit the "buy" button will be able to place the tickets in their cart and complete the transaction.

"Sold Out" means that all tickets that have been placed in carts have been purchased and the ticket sale is officially over.

To better serve our fans: Tickets@tenclub.net and the Ten Club phone line receive an overwhelming number of inquiries during the ticket sales. Please be courteous to your fellow members and only email or call with extremely time sensitive questions pertaining to the pre-sale at hand.  Hold all other questions and comments until after the pre-sales have ended.

Comments

Let me be the first to say... darn. No Texas dates?

Nothing south of Missouri. :(

Oh Yeah! You know you wanna add some dates in Chicago!
sullylove

Nothing out west....

!!!!!!!!!

looks like a trip to buffalo is in the works

Hell yes.

I TOLD YOU GUYS .... .......NEXT WEEK

BUFFALO WHO KNEW IT COULD BE SO BEAUTIFUL

Pearl Jam are the hot girls in high school. They never come anywhere near me.

Wish I could make it to NY....PJ with the Black Keys is a dream pairing for me!

thank you guys for your return to buffalo; you were greatly missed.

Yes!

Thanks for forgetting latinamerica again! :-(

Might there be a second show in Boston? got my fingers crossed would love to see them twice

The Detroit area is disappointed.

60 degrees and sunny today in Buffalo! ...and then we find out PJ is coming BACK! What a day!

price?

2 Shows at MSG......YEsssssssssssssss....I will be greedy and ask for a show on the 18th as well

AAAAARRRRRGGGGG

Damn. Maybe some west coast love next time around?

Yo, What about FLA? Well guess I can't wear my Backspacer Sucks T-shirt to any of the shows.

ct or msg 2 here i come

How about Albany on 5/18!!!!

How much are Tickets going to be????????

I wish I knew what the prices were going to be... it makes it much easier to convince my wife!

sounds good, but there are a lot of places where we NEED to see you again and doesn't appear in this leg of the tour...for example MEXICO CITY!!!!

the Black fucking Keys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Atlanta... You guys are killing me

Can we get ticket costs ?

Looks like I need to trek from Seattle to NY. Gotta do it.

No Denver Again, you haven't been here in 4 years, no love?

How can you not play Atlanta? There has never been a Pearl Jam show that did not sell out in Atlanta and they have played here since 2003. Once of the best music cities in the country and they don't play it. Unbelievable. No North Carolina dates either? They always sell out Charlotte and Raleigh too. But seriously not playing Atlanta in 7 years in insane. I'll go see Pavement instead.

We need Chicago please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed.

Yet again, nothing south of Missouri.

This just in from 10c, for all those who also need to convince their wives this weekend: (When I emailed about ticket prices) - "That info is being worked out still. But the ticket range is likely to be around $69- $79 per ticket.

-10c tix"

Alpine Valley misses PJ. Band of Horses would have been great to see open. I still have my fingers crossed...

LATINAMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

COSTA RICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Garden Party OH yea baby here we go again

this playing the east coast every year is realllllllly getting old

People, they can't play every city on the map every time they tour!!! Westerners - you guys just had a tour last year. They haven't been to Columbus, Indy, or Buffalo in 7 years. Stop whining!

ACL was the only show in the south in 7 years. I give up. I should just move to Boston, guaranteed every 2 years.

I hope everyone on the East Coast has a fucking blast at these PJ shows in May. !!!

I am going to whine just a little here...sorry.

Pearl Jam-come on guys, you haven't been to Arizona in almost 7 years!!!

I do like road trips... I will see if my bank account will let me (probably not).

Peace to all,
PJH

Southeast dates please...FL, GA, SC, NC...cmon guys

Now that there's the announcement the complaining-phase sets in......

I won't make it to the East Coast but I wish everyone loads of fun!

Thanks for including Indy! The show is the night before the mini marathon! I wonder how many of the 35,000 runners will push thru like champions and carb-up on beer, Band of Horses, and the mighty PJ! Couldn't be happier...THANK YOU!!

Who's sponsoring the tour this year?

I have classes mondays, so I can't go to the Cleveland show...BUT I'LL BE THERE FOR THE COLUMBUS SHOW!! YES!!

No Chi town, no Alpine. If only I could travel this year but, I can't. Sucks !!!!!!!!!!!

@Black73: Thank you! :)

The state of Michigan needs some Pearl Jam love!!!!!!!!!!

well Buffalo is a shorter trip than Toronto, and i don't have to put up with the crap Toronto traffic. can't wait to see you boys again. cheers

My town Columbus Ohio!! Sweet! As an added bonus I love the opening band "Band of Horses"!

I agree!! It's been quite some time for an Ohio show. ATL-you @ least got an Ed solo tour. I do not feel too bad for you!!

All I know is I'm so pumped for CLE and hopefully Cbus as well!!!

Do they ever play Nashville or Atlanta?

Yeah man two nights at the Garden! Cant Wait!

I almost assumed Chicago as a certainty. I knew Wisconsn was not in the cards because:

1. We treated EV like shit durig solo show. Bunch of idiot drunks at a small intimate acoustic show acting liek we were at Alpine Valley for a PJ show. Morons!

2. Wisconsin sucks.

Kind of stinks there are no Chicago shows. I miss them. Really, I do. Been too long.

Alpine 2003 was f'ing amazing, wasn't it?

Doubt they will return.....

sniff, sniff......

West Coast please!! Had to move for a real bad reason right before final Spectrum show in Philly and missed it. West coast plwase!!!Oh yeah, thanks

sick cant wait, pj rocks the msg

Pearl Jam 2010 Tour Map

http://tinyurl.com/ycfzztm

seeya!

YES!! Cannot wait and hope to get Boston Show tix. As much as I love PJ will NEVER see them or another show in Harford. All PJ shows in the past there were miserable due to staff and security (PJ...always great though). Will have to try New York this time!!

I can't agree more. Last time I saw PJ in hartford (2008), the ticket window was so backed up (only for 10 club, not for regular tickets) and the line was so GIGANTIC, that by the time I got my tickets I had already missed the first 7 or 8 songs.

These ass wipes ever going to come South?

The news clearly says Midwest and East Coast tour dates, which leads me to believe that there will be additional legs to be added at some point. And they HAVE hit some west coast and southern shows in the past 2 years.

Toronto please?!?

one day window to buy tickets for those that start on the 17th? that seems tight. still glad to see them out there

This is not the announcement I've been waiting for.

Two consecutive uninspired albums. Overpriced concert tickets. Feeble tours. I know a lot of people are going to look at this as blind haterism, but my other favorite big-name bands charge much less for tickets and actually put together tours that make sure everyone who wants to gets a chance to see them. I am truly beginning to feel like these guys have more important things to do than care about their fans.

I kind of thought, this being their 20-year anniversary as a band, that there would be a vast NA tour. Maybe, just maybe, they plan on coming back to finish the year in NA after Europe. Does this seem possible?

JCooper, too long since they've been in Chicago, they were just there in August?

Just glad they're coming back to Indy! Can't wait.

C'mon gentlemen, Please consider a Hotlanta Date!!! We haven't seen the boys in a long time down south.

Yeah, they were there. I could not be there. All my fault. I Should have clarified that. I agree, Indy does deserve it. Saw them there in 2000. Was a beautiful night and show. Was in August, if I recall lo those many, many beers ago. Have a great time!

Thanks! Yep, it was August, I was there that night too. Hoping for good luck with the pre-sale on Monday and good weather on May 7th. Indiana weather in May, you never know what it's going to be like.

AZ???

AZ??? PLEASE?

AZ??? OUR WEDDING? AUGUST

Where is the love for DETROIT????????

Finally...Coming back to St. Louis...Can't wait!!!

Well, you're entitled to your opinion, but the Black Keys and PJ playing MSG? That's pretty sick. I'd pay 300 bucks to see that per ticket.

Also, Pearl Jam and the members owe you nothing. They've gave far more to there fans than most bands. If ticket prices are how you judge a band that has done more than enough for their core fans that's pretty sad. No one, no one has ever put on a better show than PJ and I've paid from $5 to $200 for tickets to see other bands, none compare.

That's just my opinion. Once again they owe you nothing. Also Pearl Jam self titled was by far there best effort since Yield, seriously.

New York baby here I come!

Are they ever coming back to Texas?

Dang you recession!
b/c of you my bro and I can't go to MSG... ah well, I hope they announce bootlegs for this tour at least

So glad they will be here in the Hoosier state, finally after so long! Last summer they did two shows in Chicago.

Cleavland buffalo yes hartford boston maybe and no way im missing msg!!

Gone are the days of "Sponsored by No One" tours and looking out for the fans' pocket.($$) The band I grew up loving and following in the 90's is all but a memory.

It would make sense that they hit the west coast on their return from Europe. A little time off when they get back and then launch a fall tour. Sounds reasonable to me.

Canada??? Toronto May 18th???

Eddie kicked off his solo tour in Albany last year. Loved it so much he's dying to come back! Albany, New York May 18th!!!!!!

wow, are all PJ fans really just a bunch of bitches? "A TOUR AND THEY AREN'T PLAYING ON MY DOORSTEP? WTF?" relax everyone, they aren't like santa clause: we can't all be visited on the same night...

Yo, What about FLA? Well guess I can't wear my Backspacer Sucks T-shirt to any of the shows.

Look for the T-shirt in the Goods Section available soon.

BACKSPACER SUCKS.

About time they come back to Indy!

OK, crazy question here. I know the answer but need confirmation. Is the time difference still 3 hours from EST to PST during daylight savings? Clocks go ahead an hour this saturday. Does that mean a 9am PST pre-sale begins at Noon EST?

Midwest tour and nothing in IL,WI,MN or MI????
4years of wasted fan club memberships fees never to get a show. speaking as a child of the '90's with a job it is much harder to travel to shows when none are on saturday.

Remember when they toured and it was actually 30-40 dates and everyone could see them. Every time they announce a set of dates count on them to bend over and be in new york and boston the rest of the fans don't matter.

excellent!! looking forward to the boston show(s)!!!

I'm going back to USA and Europe. 2008 and 2009 was amazing, crazy and unforgettable!

Hello everybody! Someone from Brazil going? Someone starting from Brazil?

jcooper. Not only did they play in Chicago in August, some the the best shows Ive seen have been in Wisconsin. If you werent aware, the two shows that were played at the United center last summer were supposed to be in Wisconsin. Logistics. The solo show was unfortunate, but its happened at alot of the shows ive been to. Drunk and idiot fans. Were you talking about Wrigley Field

so you guys hate arizona now huh? the last time you were here eddie said he felt like he was sucking on a hair dryer. but hey , we have had to take road trips the last few tours so cut us some slack here, we love you , please . and remember here in phoenix the weathers been great lately .

How do I find out how much tickets will cost? Just wait till Monday?

Very, very disappointed that ATLANTA did not get a tour stop. It's been since 2003 that we last got a show from PEARL JAM.

looks like i will be avoiding cops like the plaque in boston, hartford & nyc once again

Is this a conspiracy against the RED states? We like Pearl Jam as well.

TBA=FENWAY PARK

MAYBE THE REDS ARE COMMUNISTS

awwwwww no North carolina :(

Everyone knows Detroit and all of Michigan are going through some major tough times....we really could use some kick @$$ music from a kick @$$ band! Come on PJ!

TBD might be another Letterman appearance..

no pittsburgh,...two in cleveland?

Hoped to see a Copps date in Hamilton Ontario but pretty hapy about Buffalo NY can't wait!!

Montreal or Quebec city...anything...please!!

BACKSPACER SUCKS.

YOU SUCK MORE!

And no Backspacer does not suck.

So were pretty much guaranteed two Boston shows!! Can't wait!

No Minnesota again. Bummer

Whoever said Fenway Park, the Sox are in New York that day playing the Yankees. I guess anything is possible.

Nothing in Miami, FL????? Pleaaasssseeee!

Please, please, please come to Chicago

Too old to have a real US tour, eh? well fuck it. it was good while it lasted. have fun at MSG 5000 or whatever youre on now.

.

Indy is very glad to have the guys back. '03 was the last time in, so we can't wait for a great time at Verizon.
Thanks for putting us down on the tour.

The planets are aligned and Pearl Jam have returned to Missouri! KC/STL here I come!

Guys please come back to Toronto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Surprised they're playing the NO Jazz Fest. Bigger things are at work...

Please, please, please, pleassssssssssse, come to Atlanta on May 18th! I'm a Seattle transplant and in serious need of some hometown music. I've traveled for the past seven years to see you. Please come to Atlanta!

Well, i'll admit i am a little disappointed in no TN or Cincy date since i am in the south, but i'll keep my fingers crossed for a possible fall tour in the U.S.- THAT would be a great wedding gift! What's wrong, does only Ed like Memphis? :-) Enjoy the shows - hail, hail all you lucky ones!!!

thats great haha

2 dates @ NYC, can't be better, can't wait!!!

Please come to Argentina!!!!

Florida pleeeeeeeeease Please pleeeeeeeease. Miami , sunrise, west palm beach or even orlando just please come to FLORIDA

well some dates are better than none and there are bigger things in the world to get worked up about. But I really wish they'd tone down the tour date announcements. People see the headline and expect to see a full blown tour. Instead it's a dozen dates in one part of the country. Half of the posts here are people bummed, not excited. This happened last year too. I'm in Detroit and they haven't been here since 2006 -- even though they had to drive right through town last summer on the way from TO to Chitown. (No Vedder solo dates either.)
But then I read about people in Phoenix and Atlanta who haven't had a show since 2003 (I was at the last Atlanta show) and I really feel bad. Yet they play NY, Boston and other cities regularly.
We went to TO in August and hope to make Cleveland or Indy this time, but it is tough with the economy, a job, kids. If they don't want to do full fledge tours anymore, it would be nice if they at least played more Saturday shows. There is one out of the 11 announced. That would at least increase the chances of traveling to shows. I know they have families and lives too. I respect that. But they do have an unbelievable fan base that other bands would love to have. It may be wrong, but somehow I feel it's not right to not play a major city for 4 or 7 years. If the fanbase is smaller in other cities, play a theater, not an arena. It is a strange approach to not play some towns for multiple years, in some cases close to a decade, especially with the band open more than ever to commercialism, mainstream, etc. For a band known for its live shows, how can you win new fans if you haven't played in a major city since 2003?

DETROIT ??? DETROIT ??? DETROIT ???

PLEASE COME TO DETROIT !!!

Sorry, but that's such bullshit. Every fucking year, Boston, Philly, the Garden, usually multiple shows each. They played "the west coast" last year? Let's see, two mid-week LA shows, then TWO MORE mid-week LA shows. Gee, sorry guys, I've got a wife, kids and a job.

The San Francisco "show"? A festival show a month before the new record came out, from which they played two whole songs.

I've been a fan club member since '95 or so. You know how many fan club shows they've played, TOTAL, in the Bay Area since then? Two.

Halloween '00 for Binaural, and June '03 for Riot Act. One night only each year.

Yes, they played three shows in '06, but they were all GA. The couldn't even cordon off a section up front for fan club members.

I know it's lame to bitch about a band that does so much (above and beyond making amazing music) for their fans, but this is absurd. And I don't want to hear, "oh, you get Bridge School shows" - what, 30-45 minutes of acoustic PJ, no 10C help with tickets, and often a bunch of other shitty bands? I don't think so.

I love the singles, but if I were only in the club for the ticket-buying "advantages," two shows in 15 years for what I pay every year is a pretty poor return.

Vent over.

Thanks for the great music guys. For all of you guys bitching that live in ATL and AZ....Think of the 250k-500k population cities that dont have pro football, hoops, baseball....and to top it off they dont get bands like PJ. I live in New Mexico and PJ has treated Albuquerque pretty well and I know that Eddie loves NM. The only problem with NM is that the venues really suck. They either play a place built for rodeos or an outdoor venue that isnt as intimate. I was lucky enough to score front row in SF for the eddie solo...got to give him a high five at the end.....The greatest musical event Ive ever been too so I cant complain. I would love a DEN, ALB, AZ show...and remember traveling in the west is longer than the EAST, SOUTH, or MID. Cities are further apart. Remember people are dying and people are having bad times....enjoy your life.

i hear the sound of memberships lapsing all over America...

Im starting to lose faith in Pearl Jam. Once again no shows in MN or anywhere in decent driving range. I was PUMPED for the new album since they would tour it, but Im starting to NOT CARE since they wont get off the coasts!

don't ever touch the porch again.

TBD is slang for Montreal, Qc right?

thanks PJ for the tour! the new album! and advanced tix! this is awesome! pumped for the MSG show with the Black Keys! fantastic!

to all the people bitchin' about location of shows, maybe they're not done announcing dates yet. i've found in the recent years, PJ seems to announce smaller parts of an overall larger tour. also, living in canada all my life i've always had to drive, take the bus, 5 or 6 hours to see these guys anyway, except during the Canada tour. So suck it up and get on a bus for Gods sake, no one cares that they didn't come to your city except you.... and that's because you're a baby.

This is simple economics. The band rakes in the most cash in Boston, NYC and that area of the US. Why tour Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville and Raliegh when you came make the same money from those 4 shows by playing one in NY or Boston? To call this May run a "tour," is a joke. Do you think the band even wants to do full tours anymore? Of course not. Stone had "sold to PJ at birth," on his guitar pick. That phrase speaks volumes. The band is no longer about music but instead money and obligation.
If there is anyone out there from the 10c, band or management reading this WAKE UP!! We want a show in ATLANTA! Eddie was great but he is not Pearl Jam. There go my chances of ever winning the seat lottery if PJ ever does come back to ATL. Oh well, a little free speech never hurt anyone even if it is not what you want to hear.

Look, I am thrilled that they are opening in Kansas City, where I live, but if they weren't, I'd be traveling. I've seen them at ACL, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, in NYC, at the Gorge, etc. If you really want to see them, you go where they are. Stop the whining, people.

But thank you, thank you, thank you for coming back to KC!

alright people who are pissed about the mostly East Coast tour dates, especially those from CA or IL, or PA...

remember this? "http://www.pearljam.com/tour/shows/2009"

Um, hello! you got your backspacer tour, already! Everyone east of IL has been waiting for this all year!!! Now shut up and let us have a turn!

Pearl Jam or Eddie have come to Chicago at least once a year for the last 5 years...but Indiana, seriously? Who lives in Indiana? It will be all Chicago folks anyway, just burnin up the fuel to see em

you already got your backspacer tour last year. we didn't.

thanks PJ for the tour! the new album! and advanced tix! this is awesome! pumped for the MSG show with the Black Keys! fantastic!

to all the people bitchin' about location of shows, maybe they're not done announcing dates yet. i've found in the recent years, PJ seems to announce smaller parts of an overall larger tour. also, living in canada all my life i've always had to drive, take the bus, 5 or 6 hours to see these guys anyway, except during the Canada tour. So suck it up and get on a bus for Gods sake, no one cares that they didn't come to your city except you.... and that's because you're a baby.

"It was a JOKE"

And sounds like your the one doing the complaining.

what happened to Washington DC? that the east coast.

Bristow VA, maybe I'll leave the porch for MSG too...oh, hells, yeah!

oh, and i'm sorry to break the bad news, but when TBA follows a boston date, it's another boston date. see 2003, see the pre-"vote for change" shows, 2006...

i would be just fine if they didn't make it a second boston show (i'm all for spreading the love) but historically, that's what happens.

we can barely afford to see one show in boston, but i know that if they announce a second show, we're totally going...and 90% of the reason is that if we don't go, they'll play "Just Breathe" during that show, and we'll hate ourselves forever for missing it! :-P

and stop bitching about "the economics of it". they make more money in NYC and Boston because there's a bigger fanbase. what kind of band would neglect the places where their fans are most concentrated? doesn't it stand to reason that when you go someplace with a big fan base, that you're going to make more money doing it? just because they make more money as a result of pleasing more fans doesn't mean that they are sellouts, it means that they want to be where their fans are.

Sure Leftist Porch, u are so right.... whatever you say. I must not be drinking enough of the Jonestowm Kool-Aid to stomach this album.
