Pearl Jam come to Barcelona as part of their latest world tour, a promotional event for the release of their eleventh studio album. The Seattle band, whose sound is an alt-rock style that's more complex than the 'grunge' label it's usually given, has kept its four core members since its creation in 1990, no mean feat in such a demanding industry.

This consistency has doubtless contributed to Pearl Jam's three decades of awards and album sales in the millions, as has the group's conscious effort to always follow their own path. As well as making music, they're active in numerous social, political and environmental movements, while also resisting rules of the entertainment business (eg, in the 1990s they refused to make videos for their singles) that they feel need to be broken. No wonder their many adoring fans look upon them as so much more than rock stars.
