Pixies, circa late-'80s

The Pixies are set to open their Doolittle 20th anniversary tour next week in Dublin, and, thanks to crushing demand for tickets, the band over the past few weeks has added a considerable number of dates to the worldwide trek — but only in cities where they already were booked to play the classic 1989 album in its entirety.

Barring additional shows, the nearly sold-out tour now consists of 41 concerts in 22 different cities across Europe, the United States and Down Under; in recent weeks, Dublin; Paris; Los Angeles; Oakland, Calif.; Denver; Sydney; Melbourne, Australia; and Perth, Australia, all have received second and/or third nights.

UPDATE 9/29/09: Two more U.S. dates added this week: Nov. 26 in New York (a 1 a.m. show, no less) and Dec. 1 in Washington, D.C.
