To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their classic 1989 album, Doolittle, Pixies – Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering – have embarked on a very special tour – “The Doolittle Tour” – which arrives in Australia in March 2010. For the Doolittle Tour, Pixies will perform all of the songs from Doolittle and its related B-sides. Pixies’ classics such as Debaser, Wave of Mutilation, Here Comes Your Man, Hey, and Gouge Away are all on Doolittle’s track listing.
“We wanted to do something special for Doolittle’s 20th anniversary,” Black Francis said, “and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t normally do at a regular gig.”
This will be only the second Australian visit by Pixies, and follows on to sell out 2009 European and US tours showcasing Doolittle. In 2007 Pixies headlined the inaugural Australian V Festival, as well as packing out headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney, for which tickets sold out within minutes.
