Pearl Jam will play a free club show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on May 11, two weeks before the rock group's European tour begins, according to band publicist Annie Ohayon. The club, which holds 1,150 people, will give away tickets through local radio station CFOX-FM. The gig will be a warm-up for the European tour, which kicks off on May 23 — the same day the band's sixth studio album, Binaural, hits stores — in Lisbon, Portugal. The single "Nothing as It Seems" is slated to arrive at radio stations in April.
