Pearl Jam preps special Gigaton theatrical preview

The band have planned one-night-only screening events for their upcoming album.

Pearl Jam have announced a special theatrical preview of their upcoming LP, Gigaton. The one-night-only event will feature unique audio-visual experiences, held on 25 March at 200 Dolby Atmos-equipped cinemas around the world.

Dubbed the “Gigaton Listening Experience”, the event will feature an entire playback of Gigaton in Dolby Atmos surround sound, paired with visuals created by Evolve – the studio behind the trio of videos for the album’s lead single, Dance Of The Clairvoyants. “It’s truly a unique way to experience this album,” Gigaton producer Josh Evans said in a statement on the band’s website. “I’m excited for fans to be able to immerse themselves in the sound and to hear the depth and layers of these songs and performances.”

Pearl Jam have not let up on the gas where promotion of their upcoming album – due 27 March – is concerned. Apart from the “Gigaton Listening Experience” and the trio of music videos for Dance Of The Clairvoyants, the band launched an augmented reality (AR) app last month to promote the single Superblood Wolfmoon. This app, which required users to point their phones at the moon to access a preview of the single, was a collaboration between Republic Records and creative studio Powster.


Pearl Jam are also set to embark on an international tour to support Gigaton. It will kick off 18 March in Toronto, Canada and end on 23 July in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
