Pixies Announce Doolittle 20th Ann. Tour


Floggin’ that massive
box set, too…


By Blurt Staff


To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their
1989 album Doolittle,
the Pixies – Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering – will
embark on what they’re calling the Doolittle
Tour this fall in the UK
and Europe. It will kick off with two nights
at the Olympia in Dublin, Ireland
on October 1 and 2.  Tickets for all dates (listed below) go on sale this
Friday, July 3 at 9AM; consult the usual overseas ticketing companies
(Ticketmaster, Gigs and Tours, etc.) for ordering details.


For the Doolittle Tour, the Pixies will perform all of the
songs from Doolittle and
its related B-sides, including 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, in a statement,  “and we thought his was a good
opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t
normally do at a regular gig.”


The ultimate Pixies Collector’s Set, Minotaur, will be
ready to ship to purchasers in early October and presales are being taken at www.ainr.com


A couple of weeks ago the band played a secret gig at London’s Village
Underground in front of 300 fans. Go HERE for details of the show, including
