Pearl Jam cancels performances in Sacramento, Las Vegas after guitarist tests positive for COVID-19

A Pearl Jam concert planned for Wednesday at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento has been canceled after the band’s guitarist tested positive for COVID-19, and the band also canceled its Friday concert at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The result tested positive for the coronavirus, and the band was able to continue performing in Auckland with a guest drummer. “This is appalling to everyone who participated and we especially regret those who made plans to attend these shows,” Pearl Jam said on Twitter. “Our interest in staying inside the bubble has been consistent. We really did everything we could to stay away from infection.” The band and Golden 1 Center said refunds would be processed automatically for ticket holders. Pearl Jam previously pulled the plug on concerts in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She released her new album Gigaton weeks later.
