Pearl Jam Will Soundtrack The World Series

Pearl JamPearl Jam’s epic, rain-delayed set at Chicago’s Wrigley Field in July won’t be the only time the band connects with baseball in 2013.

A partnership with Fox Sports will include extensive use of 48 Pearl Jam songs across the promotional and music beds for this month’s World Series coverage, set to air Oct. 23-31 on Fox, and feature the group’s music throughout November as Artist of the Month across all Fox Sports properties.

The deal includes all 12 tracks from Lightning Bolt, plus 36 songs from the Pearl Jam catalog, spanning all the band’s albums (with the exception of 2002’s politically charged Riot Act).

Pearl Jam’s songs will be featured in all types of music beds during the World Series, from opening teases and commercial bumpers to montages, as well as additional promotional inventory across Fox prime-time and cable networks in November.
