Pearl Jam has signed on for an Oct. 22 benefit at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, with all proceeds to be donated to YouthCare and the Orion Teen Center.

The rare acoustic show will come three days before the group performs for the sixth time at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert outside San Francisco.

Tickets for the performance, Pearl Jam’s first since wrapping its Riot Act world tour in mid-July, go on sale Friday (Oct. 3) via Ticketmaster. YouthCare ( has been aiding Seattle area youths and homeless individuals since 1974.

Pearl Jam will on Nov. 11 release the double-disc DVD “Live at the Garden” via Epic. A long-awaited collection of rare tracks will be issued the same day, but its name and track list have yet to be confirmed.
