Pearl Jam has finally announced plans for a rescheduled North American tour.

Eddie Vedder and company were originally supposed to launch a run through the U.S. and Canada to support their new album, Gigaton, in March 2020, but the outing was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a news post Tuesday, the grunge icons reveal that the tour is current set to kick off in May 2022. The exact itinerary is set to be announced “early next year.”

“For nearly two years, the band has wanted nothing more than to play their new music live for you,” the post reads. “The whole Pearl Jam team shares your excitement for us all to be safely on the road again together.”

Pearl Jam’s 2022 also includes a European tour, which will begin in June.
