American Express presents BST Hyde Park have announced another mammoth headliner for 2020, with US rock titans Pearl Jam set to play the festival on Friday 10th July. They will be supported by Pixies and White Reaper – more be announced.
Pearl Jam will take to Hyde Park in a UK Exclusive live performance for 2020. They are the second act to be announced and join the ultimate girl band Little Mix who will headline BST Hyde Park on Saturday 4th July.
The most successful of the Seattle grunge outfits (along with Nirvana), Eddie, Stone, Mike and Jeff are also one of the few that still remain. Formed from the ashes of Mother Love Bone, PJ's mixture of 70s sleazy retro-rock, bluesy folk-metal and upbeat guitar anthems has won them a legion of loyal fans worldwide. Collaborations with Neil Young and Soundgarden as well as a healthy contempt for organisations like MTV haven't hurt either. And live, Eddie has the voice of an angel.

More than 10 years after their bitter split, the Pixies reunited in 2004 and have continued to tour and produce new music. They had an enormous influence on alternative rock music, despite their relatively modest commercial success. Their intensely dark sound, often referred to as 'post-punk', pre-dated the huge mainstream success of the grunge scene that they clearly laid the foundations for. It certainly wouldn't be exaggerating the importance of the Pixies' in the late 80s and early 90s to ask whether seminal tracks such as 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' would ever have seen the light of day without their influence. Founding member Kim Deal left the band in 2013, shortly before the band released their first new music in nearly a decade. Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering continue to tour, with Paz Lenchantin - whose CV includes A Perfect Circle, ZWAN and The Entrance Band - stepping in on bass since 2014 and is now the band’s official bassist.
