Pixies bringing ‘Doolittle’ back to U.S. for 19-date ‘Lost Cities’ tour this fall


The Pixies will bring their seemingly never-ending tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of Doolittle — a record that’s now actually 22 years old — back to the U.S. for another round of 19 dates in October and November, this time “playing cities we’ve never visited across the U.S. of A.”

The band will formally announce the so-called “Lost Cities” trek tomorrow, but this afternoon sent fans an e-mail listing the cities — but not venues — they’ll hit. The tour opens Oct. 27 in Montclair, N.J., and wraps Nov. 21 in Santa Cruz, Calif. (see dates below). The group also promises to release ticket pre-sale information later this week.

The fall dates mark the fourth leg of the band’s global Doolittle tour to play the U.S., although the most recent, in April and early May of this year, primarily stopped in Canadian cities. Previously, the Pixies brought their Doolittle show — which features the band playing its 1989 album in its entirety, plus all its B-sides — to American cities in both 2009 and 2010. The band also has played the album in Europe and Australia.

UPDATE 7/5/11: Venues now added. Pre-sale begins Friday, and will include “specially designed, limited edition Pixies T-shirt,” via General on-sale is July 15.

Ride "Nowhere: 20th Anniversary Edition"


  1. The Pixies never made it to Portland? OK, now THAT is a surprise. Since it’s only two hours from Boston, I figured they would have hit some hole in the wall back in the early days.

    Nice to see that the Casino Ballroom in Hampton Beach is on board a quarter-century late. Must have been busy with all of those endless Thorogood and Nugent shows over the years…

  2. Rochester? dang. Used to live there. Liked it a lot except for the immense lack of jobs. This really is a “lost city” tour. Cool.

  3. Made one of the “lost cities” shows last eve in LA…however this was the “fans only” show. Check the setlist:

    over 90 mins of pure pixies bliss:

    Bone machine (partial)
    Wave of mutilation
    isla de encanta
    Ed is dead
    There goes my gun

    Crackity jones
    Winter long
    Holiday song
