Pearl Jam cancel their European tour, during which they were expected to headline at the Rock Werchter festival in early July. However, the organisers consider it unlikely that the event will take place.
Pearl Jam were due to set fire to the Werchter plain on Thursday July 2. This would be its sixth appearance at the festival, the last one in 2018.
Rock Werchter’s organisers have indicated on Twitter that they understand Pearl Jam’s decision and that the chances of the festival taking place are slim. The decision will be made by the National Security Council.
