Following the recent release of ‘Bagboy’ and the announcement of an extensive European tour, the Pixies today announce eight U.S. club shows set for September. The band will headline the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on September 9, 10, and 11, and the Mayan on September 12, followed by three nights at New York’s Bowery Ballroom, September 17, 18 and 20, and a show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 19. These dates mark the first time since 2009 that the Pixies have played public shows in these cities.
To ensure that the hard-core fans had access to these shows, 50% of all tickets available for these eight concerts were offered exclusively to the Pixies fan club members early yesterday morning via email, and 50% of all shows were sold out in minutes. Also, to keep the ticket price fair and affordable, fans pay a simple, “all-in” ticket price, meaning that no additional charges will be added to the face value.
The public on-sale for all eight shows begins on Saturday, July 27 at 10AM local time, and are available from www.pixiesmusic.com.
“We couldn’t be happier with the sold out European shows and the way ‘Bagboy’ has been received by fans and by the media. We’ve been wanting to release new music for a long time now, and to not only be able to finally do it, but to have people really like it, is like grabbing the brass ring. And we’re really looking forward to playing again in L.A. and New York.” – Dave Lovering
