Pixies Announce European Tour Details

PixiesSing hosannas, if the Pixies have only gone and announced details of a European tour for October that includes shows in London, Dublin and Glasgow.

Frank Black and co will play two nights at the Dublin Olympia, four at the O2 Academy Brixton in London and one at the Glasgow SECC. The mini tour will be entitled the ‘Doolittle’ tour to mark the 20th anniversary of the release of that album. Ah, remember when bands used to name tours?

Of course, it’s a fair point to argue that the Pixies may well call this the ‘Nostalgia and Bank Account Filling Tour’ but at the end of the day, like the album said, everyone else is doing it, why shouldn’t they?

Rumour has it that the Pixies will play all the songs that feature on the album and its related b-sides at the shows. The band are also set to release a new career-spanning box set, ‘Minotaur’, in September.

They played an impromptu live gig in London earlier this month at an exhibition of the set’s artwork.

Pixies will play: Dublin Olympia (October 1, 2) Glasgow SECC (4) O2 Academy Brixton (6, 7, 8, 9) Frankfurt Jahrhunderhalle (11) Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall (13) Brussels Forest National (14) Paris Zenith (15)

And yes, you are in a quandry; if you don’t go, you’ll regret it. If you do go, you will spend half of the show thinking ‘Christ, Frank Black is fat’. So is Kim Deal now, but she’s still cool.
