Pixies To Kick Off World Tour In France

Armed with “Bagboy,” the band’s first new song in nine years, the Pixies will launch the first leg of what will be a massive global tour on September 29 in Paris, France.

This will kick off the first tour the Pixies have done in nearly two years, and will give them an opportunity to do something they haven’t been able to do in two decades: premiere brand new Pixies songs, the first collection of new material since 1991’s Trompe le Monde. Log onto pixiesmusic.com for complete on-sale dates and ticket purchasing information.

For this tour, which will feature a brand new stage set and production, the Pixies – Black Francis – guitar/vocals, Joey Santiago – guitars/backing vocals, and David Lovering – drums/backing vocals – will be joined by bassist Kim Shattuck. Shattuck played bass for the all-girl L.A. garage rock band The Pandoras, and then was the guitarist for the pop punk band The Muffs. The four have been holed up in an L.A. rehearsal space getting ready to offer the most wide-ranging concert set-lists of Pixies music in the band’s career.

“Along with everyone’s favorites, we’ll be playing songs that we haven’t played in ages or never played live before,” said Black Francis. “Songs like ‘Brick is Red,’ ‘Havalina,’ ‘Tony’s Theme.’ and ‘Sad Punk.’ We’ve probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we’ll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it. We’re all really looking forward to this tour.”
