After cancelling their London show, Pearl Jam have announced the cancellation of two more European show.

Pearl Jam has scrapped shows on July 2-3 in Berlin while unspecified band members recover. Tickets for both Berlin shows will be refunded at the point of purchase.

Despite everyone’s best efforts, the band has yet to make a full recovery,” Pearl Jam said in a statement. “The impacts of this decision are not lost on us. We feel deeply that so many people spend their time, money, and emotional energy to get tickets and then to come see the band and it is heart-wrenching to have to disappoint you. We also appreciate the many people whose hard work goes into making these shows happen. lease trust we never take these decisions lightly and try to do everything possible to show up for you all. We wish a reschedule had been possible for this tour leg and hope to come back to Berlin soon.

According to, while the statement did not specify the illness, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder sounded hoarse during the band’s concert in Manchester on June 25th and told the crowd that he had gotten sick after high-fiving the crowd in Dublin.
