The rumors were true: Pearl Jam will be returning to Wrigley Field for two concerts this summer.

Following up on the already announced “Home Shows” in Seattle, Pearl Jam announced Wednesday they would stage “The Away Shows” concerts at Wrigley Field on Aug. 18 and 20.

Rumors about the band’s return to Wrigley (they played a pair of shows there in 2016, which were filmed for the documentary “Let’s Play Two” and featured on a live album of the same name) were rampant on social media in recent weeks after baseball stadium tour dates were accidentally posted for a brief time on the Pearl Jam website.

Registrations are being accepted now at for a Ticketmaster Verified Fan presale that starts Feb. 16. Another presale for eligible Ten Club members will begin Feb. 7, and sales to the general public will begin Feb. 21.

Similar shows are also being scheduled for Missoula, Montana, earlier in August, and later in early September at Boston’s Fenway Park.
