Pearl Jam has unfortunately had to cancel tonight's show at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA and Friday's show at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV due to bassist Jeff Ament contracting COVID. Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron had to sit out a few shows recently due to COVID, where the band had everyone from a high school senior to original drummer Dave Krusen fill in.

Pearl Jam has issued the following statement, and of course we wish both Cameron and Ament all the best in their recovery. You can catch the band again starting on September 1 at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City. Get those dates here.

"While the band battled through Oakland after drummer Matt Cameron tested positive for Covid, and Fresno where Ed and the band got through it with the help of Dave Krusen as special guest drummer, they now have to present the heartbreaking news that this morning bassist Jeff Ament has tested positive for Covid.

"This is horrible for everybody involved and we are especially sorry to those out there who have made plans to attend these shows. Our attention to staying inside the bubble has been constant. We have truly done all that we could have to remain clear of infection.

"Regretfully, the Sacramento and Las Vegas shows are canceled. Ticket refunds will be automatically processed to ticket holders' method of purchase. We are so very sorry. Be safe out there."
