I’ve heard the same rumor from two different people – two Pearl Jam fans who don’t know each other but have shared the same “I heard …” story. The rumor is Pearl Jam will be performing in Columbus this year and there are lots of clues that this might in fact be the case. QFM (96.3) reportedly is set to make two major concert announcements on Tuesday and Pearl Jam just tweeted that “The wait is almost over. #PJTour2016”. The Bonnaroo 2016 lineup supposedly leaked with Pearl Jam slotted as one of the headliners – the announcement comes tomorrow night on the Conan show. Will Pearl Jam announce a tour in advance of this lineup announcement? Doesn’t seem likely but we’ll find out soon enough.
So, if Pearl Jam is one of the announcements that QFM will be making, who is the second? Haven’t heard much about a Guns N’ Roses actual tour other than they are hoping to a stadium tour. Heard that Metallica might be gearing up for a tour as there is some indication that they are hard at work on a new album.
Of course, I, for one, am getting all excited at something that will be probably be a Uriah Heep/Kansas double bill at the Ohio State Fair this summer. Or maybe the Journey/Doobie Brothers tour will add a stop in Columbus.
