The Pixies On Tour

Due to overwhelming demand, the Pixies have added a third and final night at The Hollywood Palladium on Friday, November 6, 2009. Tickets for the third night go on sale this Saturday, September 26 at 10:00AM exclusively online at

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of their classic 1989 album Doolittle, the band – Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering – will kick off the very special U.S. “Doolittle Tour” at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on November 4, 5 and 6.

On this tour, the Pixies will perform all of the songs from Doolittle and its related B-sides, “Weird at My School, “Dancing the Manta Ray,” and “Bailey’s Walk” among them. Doolittle, the band’s third album and the first to chart on Billboard’s album charts, includes classics such as “Debaser,” “Wave of Mutilation,” “Here Comes Your Man,” “Hey,” and “Gouge Away.”

“We wanted to do something special for Doolittle’s 20th anniversary, said Black Francis, “and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t normally do at a regular gig.”

The Boston-formed Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential pioneering band of the late ’80s alt/rock movement. Their five studio releases and six years together effectively blazed the path for groups like Nirvana, Radiohead, and Pearl Jam to rise to superstardom. They disbanded in 1993 and launched their reunion tour in April 2004 when virtually every, single date sold out within minutes and fans traveled hundreds of miles to attend a show. In post-Pixies years, Black Francis has enjoyed a successful solo career as Frank Black, Kim Deal went on to form the Platinum-selling band the Breeders, Joey Santiago started the band The Martinis and has carved a career as a music composer for film and TV, and David Lovering performs as a magician and continues to drum. The U.S. “Doolittle Tour” will be the band’s first American trek since 2005.

The “Doolittle Tour” will coincide with the release of the ultimate Pixies Collector’s Set, Minotaur, which ships to purchasers in early October and will hit stores around the same time. To find out more about Minotaur and to place an order, log onto
