Pearl Jam concert chronology

The Pearl Jam 2015 Latin America Tour was a concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam.[1] The tour consisted of nine shows in Latin America, including venues in Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Argentina.[2][3][4] This was the first tour following the Lightning Bolt Tour that finished in 2014 and the first shows in Latin American since the band released their 2013 album Lightning Bolt.[5] The tour started on November 4 in Santiago, Chile, and finished on November 28 in Mexico City.[6] On August 6, it was announced that the show in Colombia will be moved from Estadio El Campín to Simón Bolívar Park.[7]

The tour started in Santiago, with the band covering John Lennon's song "Imagine" during their set.[8] Writing for Consequence of Sound, Alex Young called it "a truly surreal moment".[9] At the show in Porto Alegre on November 11, the band covered Pink Floyd's song "Comfortably Numb" for the first time.[10][11] At the show in São Paulo the band dedicated their song "Love Boat Captain" to the victims of the Paris attacks, which took place the previous day.[12] They continued the tour by playing their first ever show in Bogotá, Colombia on November 25.[13] The tour concluded with a show at the Foro Sol Stadium in Mexico City, in front of more than 60,000 people.[14]
