Pearl Jam at Tottenham Stadium: timings and everything you need to know

Fun fact: Pearl Jam have played 22 shows in London since forming at the start of the 1990s. They’ve never played the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before but that might not be so surprising – it did, after all, only open in 2019. 

Summer is well underway in London, and that means two things for music fans: festivals and stadium gigs. And Pearl Jam are getting in on the act this weekend, taking over the Spurs home-ground to celebrate the release of their 12th, yes, 12th, studio album Dark Matter

Tickets for Pearl Jam’s Dark Matter World Tour in the UK went live last February – so this gig has been a long time coming. Here’s everything you need to know to have a great time with the ’90s rock icons this weekend.

When are Pearl Jam playing Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?

The band are in London for one night only: Saturday June 29

What time do doors open?

Doors will open at 4:30pm.

What time will Pearl Jam come on stage?

The venue’s website has released set times, but they do stipulate that these are subject to change. They’re unlikely to differ hugely from the planned timings though, so these are a good guide. Make sure to continue to check any emails from the stadium in case of any moving around.

  • Support acts from – 5.30pm
  • Pearl Jam – 7.50pm

Who is supporting the band?

Pearl Jam are important enough to have two support acts, rather than the usual one. Ex-Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft and Irish post-punks the Murder Capital will both perform before the main event. 

What’s the setlist for the Dark Matter tour?

The band are known for changing up their setlist every night. There are a few songs, such as smash hits ‘Jeremy’ and ‘Even Flow’, that are played every night, but other than that it’s pretty up in the air.
