(UPDATE 8/5/16) After spending the last two years touring internationally, longtime rockers Pearl Jam haven't missed a beat on their 2016 North American Tour. The Seattle-based quintet has just four more shows remaining this summer, with two stops scheduled at both Fenway Park and Wrigley Field through the end of August. Eddie Vedder and Co. will rock Fenway twice this weekend, and while Pearl Jam tickets on TicketIQ are expensive, fans will be getting their money's worth to see the "Even Flow" creators make their mark each ballpark.
With an arsenal of countless hits over the last three decades, Pearl Jam has packed quite the punch on the road this year. The group's average setlist in 2016, which can be found below, is equipped with songs from all 10 of their studio albums, including mega hits like "Jeremy", "Rearviewmirror", "Alive" and "Better Man".
Expect to pay up to listen to those tunes live, however. As it stands now the average resale price for Pearl Jam tickets across both Fenway gigs this weekend is $290.54. The cheapest ticket in Boston? A cool $148 for Friday night's show. The band's two-night stay at Wrigley on August 20 and 22 won't be any more forgiving on the wallet, with the average price for tickets listed from $384.12 on the secondary market. The cheapest ticket in Chicago is for their August 22 stop at $150.
