There once could have been a joint tour with Pearl Jam, Guns N’ Roses and U2

It has been revealed that Guns N’ Roses, U2 and Pearl Jam once nearly went on a massive joint tour together – but the latter band refused to take part.

The shows were suggested by GnR frontman Axl Rose in 1993, just after Pearl Jam had enjoyed the success of breakthrough debut ‘Ten’. In a new interview wit fansite GnR Central, former manager Doug Goldstein said that U2 had agreed to play the shows – but then everything fell apart.

“What happened was Axl [Rose] came to me, Pearl Jam had just broke, they had released Ten and it was on fire, I was [somewhere] in Tel Aviv, Israel, we were playing there,” said Goldstein. “Axl had come to me in the morning and said, ‘I don’t care if we open, I don’t care if we don’t get paid, I want to do a show or a couple of shows with us, Pearl Jam, and U2 closing. Can you please call everybody?’ I said, ‘Sure.’”

After U2’s Paul McGuinness said that the band were up for the shows, he then approached Pearl Jam’s Kelly Curtis – who immediately shut them down, allegedly without even asking the band. Goldstein claims that the curt conversation ended with Curtis telling him to not “fucking tell him how to do his fucking job”, before Goldstein wish them a nice life and the matter was closed.

After dropping their first new song in five years with ‘Can’t Deny Me‘, Pearl Jam have confirmed that a new album is on the horizon in the wake of announcing world tour dates for summer 2018.
