American Express presents BST Hyde Park have announced another mammoth headliner for 2020, with US rock titans Pearl Jam set to play the festival on Friday 10th July. They will be supported by Pixies and White Reaper – more be announced.
Pearl Jam will take to Hyde Park in a UK Exclusive live performance for 2020.
Formed in Seattle in 1990, Pearl Jam were one of the pioneers of the alternative rock movement that changed music forever. Lead by the superstar frontman Eddie Vedder, their breakout debut album Ten, released in 1991, had a lasting impact on the scene, achieving the group mainstream success. They’ve inspired countless bands with their hits, including ‘Black’, ‘Jeremy’, ‘ Alive’ and ‘Rearviewmirror’.
They’ve also been hugely commercially successful with more than 85 million albums sold worldwide and they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, which was their first year of eligibility.
Since 1990, they have cultivated a reputation for being one of the most incredible live acts of all time. From the very first time they performed in front of a live audience at the Off Ramp, Seattle in 1990, right up to today, they have set a bar of excellence that few are able to surpass.
Releasing their tenth studio album ‘Lightning Bolt’ in 2013, 2020 marks 30 years since the band’s formation and Hyde Park is going to be one hell of a celebration.
Joining Pearl Jam are fellow US rock legends, Pixies. Formed in 1986, Pixies have inspired a wealth of bands since including Nirvana, Radiohead, two past BST Hyde Park headliners The Strokes and Blur – and even a future one, Pearl Jam.
Hailing from Louisville in Kentucky, White Reaper will bring the rock & roll to Hyde Park on 10th July. The early stage of their existence sprinkled bubblegum hooks and psychedelic weirdness over their short, energetic garage punk songs.
