In a new statement, Pearl Jam have postponed their June 19 performance at London’s 20,000+ capacity O2 Arena.
“Singer Eddie Vedder has completely lost his voice,” the statement reads. “He is on vocal rest for the next few days in an effort to heal and perform the remainder of the tour dates.”
The show will be rescheduled in the near future, and tickets for June 19 will be honored at the new date.
The band also noted that this is the “first time ever” they’ve had to postpone a show due to Vedder having vocal issues.
