Pearl Jam announces July Wrigley Field show


After teasing fans through a series of Twitter posts Tuesday, Pearl Jam announced a July 17 show at Wrigley Field on Wednesday morning.

"IT'S OFFICIAL: Pearl Jam will be playing at Wrigley Field. Will you be there?" the band tweeted early Wednesday.

Tickets are on sale Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. central. Tickets will be available at www.tickets.com or by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS. There is no opening act.

Both sides seemed to indicate an announcement was close via Twitter Tuesday. The Cubs and Pearl Jam both tweeted the same photos of Wrigley Field with the hashtag "staytuned." Pearl Jam also tweeted "Looking good."

The Cubs sent out a tweet that included "Ten," and a repeat of the "stay tuned" hashtag. There was also a link to a photo of a Ron Santo Cubs jersey (he wore No. 10). "Ten" is also the title of Pearl Jam's debut album.
