It would mark their first shows Down Under since Big Day Out's final run in 2014.

Seattle rockers Pearl Jam may finally be returning to Australia for a tour — if their latest social media post is anything to go by.

On Wednesday (Dec. 20), Pearl Jam shared a video performing Do The Evolution at their 1998 show at Melbourne Park along with the telling caption, “Are you koala-fied for our ticket presales? Not a current member? Hop to it, mate! 🐨🦘🇦🇺 #TenDaysOfPJ”

Of course, fans were quick to hit the comments to suggest that an Aussie tour announcement must be imminent.

“So is this your way of saying they're FINALLY coming back to Australia!?!?” asked one eager fan, while another added, “This would be the best Christmas gift! An Australian tour!!!!”

While nothing is official yet, eagle-eyed fans on the band’s subreddit have suggested that Pearl Jam’s Australian and New Zealand shows will take place from November 8 to 10 in Auckland, before heading to Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne from November 13 to 23.

The news would undoubtedly be huge, considering the last time that Pearl Jam played in Australia was during the final Big Day Out run back in 2014

Back in February 2021, Eddie Vedder gave Australian fans some hope as he hinted at the band's long-awaited return Down Under. 

The US artist called in as a guest on NOVA's Chrissie, Sam & Browny show as part of their 'Celebrity Chase' segment, with Vedder saying that an Australian tour could be likely post-COVID. 

"Any hope of seeing Pearl Jam [here] in the next 18 months, Ed?" asked co-host Browny. 

"You know, actually because of the circumstance and because of the way you handled it," responded Vedder, "in some ways, I could say with confidence it could be the first place we play."
