Pearl Jam is cancelling the final two shows of its spring U.S. tour tonight and Friday after bassist Jeff Ament tested positive for COVID-19.

Drummer Matt Cameron had already missed the last three shows due to COVID, requiring Pearl Jam to rely on replacements to fill his seat.

The band explained:

“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.”

Do you still take daily precautions against Covid?
