Electric guitar band Pearl Jam have promised that 2011 will be a very special year in the history of the group.

They will be marking their 20th anniversary and have told their fans that the next 12 months will be a "year-long celebration".

Pearl Jam said a host of special events will be taking place to celebrate the landmark, including the rerelease of albums Vs and Vitalogy in new deluxe formats.

The electric guitar band will also feature in a special documentary entitled Pearl Jam Twenty directed by Cameron Crowe, which will be accompanied by a soundtrack album and a book.

They added that plans are also in place for "a 20th anniversary destination weekend bash sometime in late summer", while further exciting announcements and musical releases will be made as 2011 progresses.

While Pearl Jam currently have no live tour dates officially scheduled, the group had a busy 2010 which saw them perform in North America and Europe.

Their gigs include a show at Hyde Park in London, while they also managed two dates at Madison Square Garden in New York.
