Pixies Hit Toronto on Intimate North American Tour
Published Sep 25, 2019Pixies will close out 2019 with a run of smaller-than-usual North American shows — complete with an more intimate Toronto stop.
It will serve as a precursor to a bigger 2020 tour in support of their most recent album Beneath the Eyrie, though details on that are still under wraps.
They'll start off the year-end string of gigs with two shows in Los Angeles on December 2 and 3, followed by stops in San Francisco, New York and Boston. It will all end with a closing show in Toronto on December 12 at the Phoenix.
Tickets for the December shows go on sale this Friday (September 27) at 10 a.m. local time.
A statement about the upcoming tour reads:
Pixies, a long-time leader in helping to break the ticket scalper stranglehold, will be doing all they can to get their face-value tickets into the hands of their fans and not to ticket scalpers for inflated resale. Pixies have also asked the shows' promoters to remove any secondary site links and to use their anti-tout teams and technology to help thwart the scalpers. And two, there will be no firm setlist for any of these Pixies shows; their sets, while pulled from nearly 90 songs that the band has rehearsed and is prepared to play, will change from night to night with every number determined just before it's performed.
