Here's what you need to know about Pearl Jam's two Vancouver concerts

It's time for fans to Go feel Alive
Legendary rock band Pearl Jam plays Rogers Arena in Vancouver May 4 and 6, 2024.

It's going to be a busy weekend at Rogers Arena as Pearl Jam plays two shows with a potential Canucks playoff game between them.

The legendary Seattle rock band is playing May 4 and 6 as their Dark Matter tour begins with the Saturday night show at Rogers Arena, supporting their new album released earlier this year.

With a discography that goes back more than 30 years, Pearl Jam is one of the last bands that launched from the Seattle sound/grunge scene of the late 80s and early 90s still making new music.

Opening for them is a younger band, Deep Sea Diver. Also from Seattle, the quartet is based around Jessica Dobson (who was a part of The Shins and Beck's band for a spell); her husband plays the drums.

Doors open at 6 p.m. for the Vancouver shows.

Tickets for Pearl Jam at Rogers Arena in Vancouver

There are still tickets to both shows, but the Saturday, May 4, concert has far fewer, with only a a couple of hundred at most still for sale on Ticketmaster (both original and resale tickets).

And as with all Pearl Jam shows, all tickets (start) at the same price: $208.70

For Saturday, the cheapest tickets are still $208.70; that covers almost and upper level seat (except for a couple resale tickets) and most of the lower bowl. For those feeling spendy, there are some floor seats available (all resale) going for between $900 and $1,000 per ticket.

The Monday, May 5, show has hundreds more tickets available with lots of options in the lower bowl. The are more floor seats available (all resale), with some as low as $208.70.

No pit tickets are available for either show.
