Pixies Embark on 20th Anniversary Doolittle Tour

On their first tour as an ensemble since 2005's reunion, the Pixies are hitting the road once again to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1989 opus Doolittle. As Black Francis puts it, "We wanted to do something special for Doolittle's 20th anniversary, 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 tour kicks off in Europe, where most dates have already sold out, but the U.S. leg begins on November 4th in L.A., and includes three dates in New York City. Some tickets go on sale as early as this Saturday, August 1st, so be sure to check out your venue of choice's website in the near future for details. The tour also coincides with the release of the limited edition box set, Minotaur, allowing you to indulge all of your Pixies related desires this fall.
