Two years later, Pearl Jam reschedules Canadian gigs canceled by COVID

Where were you two years ago today? Probably wondering what the hell was going to happen now that the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. Pearl Jam fans had a sinking feeling that the Gigtaton world tour–which, if I remember correctly, was scheduled to start in Toronto–was going to happen?

It did not. It was the beginning of a long, long period devoid of live music and big tours, especially for Canada.

Good news, though: In another sign that we’re coming out the other side of this Pearl Jam has announced make-up dates for those Canadian shows that were canceled two long years ago.
