It's official. Eddie Vedder will be rockin' out at Wrigley Field this summer.

The Cubs and Pearl Jam began dropping a series of not-so-subtle hints Tuesday about a possible show on their respective Twitter accounts. They came clean Wednesday morning, first with a Tweet from the band and a link to the July 19 event.

"IT'S OFFICIAL: Pearl Jam will be playing at Wrigley Field. Will you be there? #PearlJamJuly19"

The Cubs introduced the show on its marquee. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 9.

"Official: Live Nation and Wrigley Field will welcome @PearlJam, July 19," the Cubs tweeted.

The team on Tuesday had fun alluding to the show. The Cubs tweeted "Ten. #Staytuned," and included a picture of a team uniform with the number 10 -- not only the legendary Ron Santo's retired number, but the name of Peal Jam's most famous album.

Pearl Jam tweeted the #Staytuned hashtag along with a photo of a poster from a previous Chicago concert with My Morning Jacket.

Both accounts then tweeted a picture of Wrigley Field with a concert stage set up on the infield, and "Looking good" on Pearl Jam's feed.

Vedder remains a huge Cubs fan since his days growing up in Evanston, has thrown out the first pitch at a Cubs game and has sung the seventh-inning stretch numerous times.
