PEARL JAM: First U.K. Show In Six Years Sold Out Within Minutes

Billboard.com is reporting that PEARL JAM will play their first U.K. show in six years on April 20, when they will drop by the 1,600-capacity Astoria. Tickets went on sale this morning (March 31) in the United Kingdom and reportedly completely sold out within several minutes.

An extensive European tour is in the works for later this year in support of PEARL JAM's self-titled album, which is due May 2 via J Records. First single "World Wide Suicide" is available as a call tone and ringer exclusively through Sprint. The cell phone carrier is also hosting a contest to send a fan to see PEARL JAM play a hometown show in Seattle on a date to be announced. Five runners-up will win a Sprint Music Phone filled with PEARL JAM content.

PEARL JAM will begin the first leg of their North American tour May 9 in Toronto.
