Eddie Vedder to Play Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg

Pearl Jam has never played on the continent of Africa, but they'll get close this December when Eddie joins Beyoncé and Jay-Z for the Manela 100: Global Citizen Festival on December 2nd at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This free-ticketed event will celebrate the centenary year of Nelson Mandela, honoring his legacy in the fight to end extreme poverty.

"It is such an honor to be given the chance to head to South Africa to celebrate Nelson Mandela's incomparable legacy. He showed an entire generation what it means to be a leader and make a difference for the world's poor. I'm so grateful that this event will serve as a reminder of his great work and inspire us all to carry on in his name," said Eddie.
