The Pixies Release 2015 Tour Dates
(UPDATE 3/23) The Pixies have added more dates to their upcoming North American tour this summer. The iconic band has announced a second Beacon Theatre show in New York City scheduled for May 26, just one day prior to their original sole stop there. John Grant will open the show newly added date. General public ticket on sale is set for Friday, March 27 at noon.
(2/24/15) After having previously been booked for east coast festivals including Amnesia Rockfest, Boston Calling, and Shaky Knees, the Pixies have announced a series of 2015 North American tour dates interlocking these festivals.
Sticking primarily on the east coast and central US, the tour kicks off May 5th at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans. The band stays south for a little under two weeks with shows in Alabama, Florida, the Carolinas, Kentucky, and Virginia before a Central and East Coast swing highlighted by a hometown show at the Boston Calling festival and back to back nights at New York's Beacon Theatre and Brooklyn's Kings Theatre. The West Coast is noticeably absent, but with 3 weeks between the band's headlining finale and their slot at Rockfest, the possibility of a west coast swing shouldn't be ruled out.
Tickets for al dates go on sale Friday, February 27th. Limited secondary market tickets are already available.
