Currently on a six-week headline tour of Europe, today Pixies announce that they will play six “close up and personal” North American concerts this December. These will be Pixies’ only U.S./Canadian shows until the band’s major North American tour launches in 2020 and are in support of the brand-new studio album Beneath The Eyrie, released September 13 (Infectious/BMG). Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 27 at 10AM (local). Log on to www.pixiesmusic.com for all ticketing information.
When it comes to “Pixies’ live performance constants,” there are two you can always count on: Pixies, a long-time leader in helping to break the ticket scalper stranglehold, will be doing all they can to get their face-value tickets into the hands of their fans and not to ticket scalpers for inflated resale. Pixies have also asked the shows’ promoters to remove any secondary site links and to use their anti-tout teams and technology to help thwart the scalpers. And two, there will be no firm setlist for any of these Pixies shows; their sets, while pulled from nearly 90 songs that the band has rehearsed and is prepared to play, will change from night to night with every number determined just before it’s performed. Fans can expect to hear favorites such as “Here Comes Your Man,” “Wave of Mutilation,” “Where Is My Mind,” “Gouge Away,” “Hey,” “Bone Machine,” “Debaser,” and “Gigantic.”
