Pearl Jam's 2016 spring tour will make four stops in Florida, but none in Orlando


Pearl Jam released their 2016 tour dates today, and get this – the North American tour will begin April 8 in Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale! Is Pearl Jam going to be on spring break? Will today's spring breakers know who Pearl Jam is? Who knows! 

From there, it hops to Miami for a show on April 9. Then to Tampa for an April 11 appearance at the Amalie Arena, then up to Jacksonville on April 13. Sorry, Orlando, no tour stops here. And there are zero West Coast tour dates announced so far.

Tickets for the Florida shows go on sale on Jan. 29.
