Pearl Jam's long and well-documented romance with big shows in baseball stadiums appears to be getting even longer in 2018 if the rumors swirling around their fan club forums turn out to be true.

AUDIO: Listen to Eddie Vedder tell the story about that time he accidentally ended up working a shift at Easy Street Records selling Mariners tickets

It was recently rumored that Eddie Vedder and crew are lining up a late-2018 North American tour, including stops at multiple baseball stadiums across the United States, including two nights in Seattle at Safeco Field in August.

"I’ve waited all my life to see PJ in Seattle, so needless to say I am 10/10 excited for this rumor to be true," Manley (the biggest PJ fan in the world) says. "I bet Eddie climbs all the way up to the train tracks at Safeco!"

This lines up well, in theory, with the band's European tour ending in Lisbon on July 14. It also makes sense as the band's love of baseball seems to know no bounds. Just last year they released the concert film from the two-night show at Chicago's Wrigley Field, Let's Play Two.

Chalk the rumors up to a few trigger-happy fans in the Ten Club or someone in the know? Or is it as one fan said, "speculation with knowledge"?

Eddie Vedder sits on his back porch with Easy Street Records owner Matt Vaughan reflecting back on that day and how it is that he ended up working at Easy Street Records, helping to sell Seattle Mariners playoff tickets and getting yelled at by an angry customer.
