The legendary act will return to our shores this December.
Almost two years to the day, Pixies were in Australia, having just kicked off their scheduled Australian and New Zealand tour. Following performances in Auckland and Melbourne, the band were forced to cancel their remaining tour dates due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
Now, the band have announced their return to our shores, embarking on a national headline tour this December! Speaking of the scheduled performances, the band share: “We are thrilled to be able to announce our return to Australia and New Zealand in December 2022, following the untimely postponement of some of these shows back in 2020. We will be returning to play two different sets across the tour."
Kicking off in Brisbane on December 2, the run of shows will continue on to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth, before crossing the Tasman for performances in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. Celebrating their 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and 1988 debut full-length, Surfer Rosa, the band will perform the releases in their entirety in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Wellington and Christchurch, and have put together a new set list that captures their catalogue for Melbourne and Auckland.
Tickets are on sale 2pm local time on April 5, with an exclusive Live Nation member pre-sale this Friday.
