As expected, the Pixies have begun booking dates for a fall North American tour, which will begin Sept. 4 in Bend, Ore. Only six additional shows are so far confirmed through a Nov. 24 stop in Toronto, with more expected. Some of the announced shows will go on-sale Friday (April 9) via Ticketmaster.
Concerts booked so far include a Sept. 6 appearance at Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot festival and a Sept. 18 visit to the annual Austin City Limits festival in Austin, Texas. Other dates will include the 4,600-capacity Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Oct. 14, and the 4,500-capacity Aragon Ballroom in Chicago on Nov. 13.
