Fresh off of their amazing performance at Barcelona's Primavera Sound festival, Pixies have announced a fresh set of Doolittle shows for the U.S.. These will be the first Pixies Doolittle shows of 2010.
The band has announced an 11-city Doolittle tour starting on September 7th in Philly, and will end on the 26th in San Diego. They'll play all of the songs from Doolittle plus B-sides like "Weird at My School" and "Dancing the Manta Ray." Check out video from the kick offf of the Doolittle tour in London from last year. Filmmakers Judy Jacobs, Tom Winkler, Brent Felix and Melinda Tupling have created 11 films especially for the Doolittle tour, which will be projected onto a large backdrop video screen.
Last time out, Pixies offered live recordings of all of the shows, with CDs for sale the very same night at their merch table immediately after the show. They'll do the same this time, letting Pixies freaks everywhere have their Doolittle cake and eat it, too. Anybody into the Pixies' music can head over to www.doolittlelive.com and buy their own copy. They gave one away for free last year, check it here.
Tickets for the Doolittle tour pre-sale begins on Monday, June 7 at 9AM ET/6AM PT at http://www.pixiesmusic.com/. The rest of the general public will have to wait until June 14th to buy Pixies tickets.
