Last month, Pearl Jam announced a European tour that gets underway in Frankfurt, Germany on June 23.

"Making this record was a long journey", guitarist Mike McCready said on the band's website. They'll play 16 shows across North America, starting March 18 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto and concluding April 19 after the second of two shows at the Oakland Arena.

Check out a complete list of tour dates below, as well as the cover for Gigaton! "Collaborating with my bandmates on "Gigaton" ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times".

The album will also feature artwork by award-winning Canadian photographer and co-founder of conservation company SeaLegacy Paul Nicklen.

Full ticket information for the tour can be found here. It was shot in Svalbard, Norway, and captures the Nordaustlandet ice cap as high volumes of melt-water gush out of it. From there, Pearl Jam will make stops in Ottawa, Quebec City and Hamilton before heading to the U.S.

A "Verified Fan" presale for the tour dates goes on sale January 23 through Ticketmaster, and a general sale for remaining tickets happens January 24.

More details on all of those points of sale follow.

For each ticket sold, $5 will go to the nonprofit Vitalogy Foundation, Pearl Jam's foundation supporting community health, the environment, arts, education and social change. Of Pearl Jam's 10 previous albums, five have reached no 1, four have reached no 2 and one topped out at no 5 in the USA. Under Ticketmaster's SafeTix program, tickets are nontransferable except through the ticketing agency's Fan-to-Fan Ticket Exchange.
