British Summer Time Hyde Park returns in 2021! London’s festival is back next year and Pearl Jam are reconfirming their place in the line up – raring to play their biggest ever show in London and adding a second consecutive night in Hyde Park, due to fan demand.
British Summer Time Hyde Park 2021 will be a huge and eagerly awaited celebration for the nation. BST Hyde Park has been at the centre of London’s summer since 2013, bringing the world’s biggest artists to the greatest outdoor venue in the world over two weekends with a host of free activities in between.
Pearl Jam are bringing a BST Hyde Park first for 2021, with two consecutive shows on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 July – as a UK exclusive. Special guests PIXIES are set to support Friday’s show, with IDLES on Saturday’s show and many more to be announced.
Formed in Seattle in 1990, Pearl Jam were one of the pioneers of the alternative rock movement that changed music forever. Led by the frontman Eddie Vedder, their breakout debut album Ten, released in 1991, had a lasting impact on the scene, achieving mainstream success. They’ve inspired countless bands with their hits, including ‘Black’, ‘Jeremy’, ‘ Alive’ and ‘Rearviewmirror’.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pearl Jam’s 2020 tour in support of their critically acclaimed new album Gigaton was postponed before it began.
Next summer, Hyde Park will finally get to enjoy the new music live, along with a host of hits. It’s been just over 30 years since the band’s formation and two nights at BST Hyde Park next year is the double celebration we’ve all been waiting for.
Joining Pearl Jam on Friday 9 July are fellow US rock legends, PIXIES.
Special guests on July 10 are one of the most exciting UK bands currently operating – IDLES. Releasing their third album ‘Ultra Mono’, on Friday it became their first to reach No.1 in the UK. They are one of the most loved live experiences around, wearing their hearts on their sleeves, giving everything to the cause and displaying an uncompromising commitment to inclusiveness in songs and performance that binds an audience together.
After a rise through the ranks of essential live acts, 2021 is IDLES’s time to join the top rank of rock headliners.
Tickets are on general sale from 10am, Saturday 10 October.
Ticket prices start at £70 + booking fee.
