The Pixies Revive Doolittle Tour – New Dates Announced

The Pixies are bringing The Doolittle Tour back to the U.S.A. The 11-city trek kicks off on September 7 at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia and will extend the 20th anniversary celebration of the release of the band’s classic 1989 album, Doolittle. All of the shows will be recorded and the CDs will be made available immediately after every show at the band’s merch table; all live CDs can also be ordered at Fuck Buttons, the two-piece electronic pop group from Bristol, England, will open all shows.

A special pre-sale begins on Monday, June 7 at 9AM ET/6AM PT at But this is more than a pre-sale – this special offer also marks the soft-launch of the first-ever official Pixies website. After disbanding in 1993 and essentially taking the "web years" off, the Pixies have quietly begun using the Internet to communicate directly with fans. This week, the band is playing the two sold-out shows in London for which the band is the sole promoter and ticketing company, offering tickets only to those on the band’s email list, and soliciting set list ideas via email. The fan-centric approach continues on Monday as pre-sale tickets provide access to the best seats at each show, and each purchase comes with a complete live recording of the show, delivered via email the day after the show. Once again, these pre-sale tickets will be made available first to members of the band’s email list, in advance of even this press announcement. The cost of these presale tickets and live recordings is less than the all-in price for tickets at public outlets.

For most dates, the public on-sale begins Monday, June 14; Nashville goes on sale Saturday, June 19. On sale times, ticket prices and where to buy tickets will vary city to city so please see itinerary below.
