Eddie Vedder has announced a new pair of solo concerts, taking place October 5 in Paso Robles, California, and October 7 in Las Vegas.

As with his solo tour earlier this year, the Pearl Jam frontman will be joined by his backing band The Earthlings, which features Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, ex-RHCP guitarist and current PJ touring member Josh Klinghoffer, longtime Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, guitarist and producer Andrew Watt and folk singer-songwriter Glenn Hansard.

Notably, the shows take place on the same nights as dates on Jane’s Addiction’s upcoming tour with The Smashing Pumpkins. That seemingly confirms that original bassist Eric Avery is back in Jane’s in place of Chaney after the band teased his return last week.

Tickets to the Vedder concerts go on sale this Friday, August 26, at 10 a.m. local time via the Ticketmaster Verified Fan platform. You can register for a chance at tickets now through Tuesday, August 23, at 5 p.m. PT.

Members of Pearl Jam’s Ten Club will also have access to a presale. For all ticket info, visit PearlJam.com.

The new shows will follow Vedder’s headlining solo performance at his Ohana Festival, taking place September 30 to October 2 in Dana Point, California. The Ohana lineup also includes Jack White, Stevie Nicks, Pink, St. Vincent and Brittany Howard.

Vedder will be supporting his new solo album, Earthling, which was released in February.
