High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Yield Tour was a
concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam to support its
fifth album, Yield. It was the band's first tour since the 1996 No
Code Tour. Pearl Jam promoted Yield with tours in Oceania, and
North America in 1998. Following the tour of Australia and before
its summer tour of North America began, drummer Jack Irons left the
band due to dissatisfaction with touring. Pearl Jam's sound
engineer Brett Eliason stated, "We went and did Hawaii and
Australia with Jack. When we came back, Jack wasn't in a position
to carry on. He made that decision more or less by himself. He can
be a really great drummer but he had difficulty on tour putting out
the energy for the length of shows they were doing. I don't know if
he thought they'd put things on hold for him." He was replaced on
an initially temporary basis with former Soundgarden drummer Matt
Cameron. Cameron said, "I got a phone call out of the blue, from
Mr. Ed Ved, Stoney and Kelly. I was ambushed. It was really short
notice. He called and said 'hey what are you doing this summer?'"
Cameron learned over 80 songs in two weeks.
