SAN JOSE, CA — With Leg One of Pixies’ 2017 North American tour sold out, and the five-week Leg Two set to kick off on September 19, Pixies – Joey Santiago/guitar, Black Francis/guitar & vocals, David Lovering/ drums, and bassist Paz Lenchantin – announced the addition of a third and final American tour leg in support of the band’s second post-reunion release, Head Carrier. Leg three launches on November 30, with a stop at City National Civic on December 10, with special guest Whitney. [Click here for event & ticket information]
As with Legs One and Two, the Leg Three shows will feature a brand new stage set designed by the band’s longtime production manager Simon Foster and lighting designer Myles Mangino. The design is simple and sleek and fashioned around special pods that are positioned behind the band, housing all of the lighting.
Fans can expect a set list comprised of the classics and catalogue rarities as well as newer songs from Indie Cindy and the band’s latest release, Head Carrier.
As is the Pixies’ norm, there will be no firm setlist for any of the shows. The band has rehearsed and is prepared to play nearly 90 songs from all points of their career, and what is played on any given night is determined mere seconds in advance. [Read More]
