Pearl Jam fans will need to wait a little longer to see the band again.

On Sunday, June 30, the rockers announced on social media that they needed to scrap two of their European tour dates due to an unspecified illness —after recently canceling another for the same reason.

"We are sorry to share that the Pearl Jam concerts scheduled for Tuesday, July 2nd and Wednesday, July 3rd in Berlin are cancelled. Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. Thank you for continued understanding and support, it means the world," Pearl Jam wrote in a statement on social media.

The band continued: “Despite everyone’s best efforts, the band has yet to make a full recovery. 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.”

They added that they never "take these decisions lightly and try to do everything possible to show up" for fans.

“We wish a reschedule had been possible for this tour leg and hope to come back soon. Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. Thank you for your continued understandi -

ng and support. It means the world," the statement concluded.

Pearl Jam was originally scheduled to perform at Waldbühne in Berlin on Tuesday, July 2, and Wednesday, July 3, but these dates have now been canceled.

The "Even Flow" band called off their Saturday, June 29, show at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium just days ago, citing the same reason.

Pearl Jam's next scheduled date is Saturday, July 6 in Barcelona.

Alongside the announcement of their 12th albumDark Matter in February, the "Daughter" group announced a massive 2024 world tour across nine continents. The run kicked off Saturday, May 4 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will wrap in Sydney on Nov. 21.

Deep Sea River and Glen Hansard were announced as openers for various North America dates, while Murder Capital was listed as support in the United Kingdom and Europe. Richard Ashcroft was added as an opener in Dublin and London, and the Pixies were listed as support in Australia and New Zealand.

Dark Matter — crafted with producer Andrew Watt as well as the band's frontman Eddie Vedder, bass player Jeff Ament, guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, as well as drummer Matt Cameron —was released on April 19, 2024.
