NEW YORK (Billboard) - Pearl Jam will return to Europe in the summer for a series of headlining and festival appearances, beginning June 22 in Dublin.

The group has announced seven dates so far, with four more shows to be revealed at a later date. In addition to Dublin, Pearl Jam will visit Belfast, Northern Ireland; London; Berlin; Arras, France; Werchter, Belgium; and Oeiras, Portugal. Supporting acts have yet to be announced.

Pearl Jam will be touring in support of its new self-released album, "Backspacer," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
