Pixies join The Replacements at Riot Fest in Chicago — new lineup’s first U.S. date

Riot Fest

The Pixies are now set to debut their new Kim Deal-less lineup at Chicago’s Riot Fest this September, joining a bill that includes the reunited Replacements, Blondie, Violent Femmes, Mission of Burma, X, Dinosaur Jr and Peter Hook, among many others.

The Pixies were added today alongside Joan Jett, TSOL and Suicidal Tendencies.

The Chicago appearance, set for sometime the weekend of Sept. 13-15, comes ahead of the Pixies’ already announced European tour, which will feature the band’s new lineup with The Muffs frontwoman Kim Shattuck replacing the departed Deal. The band has promised a U.S. tour is to come, but it’s not likely that will happen until after the European dates.

The new additions to Riot Fest’s Chicago lineup come as several bands have dropped out, including Motörhead, Bad Brains and Attack Attack! The Pixies have only been announced for the Chicago festival and not the fest’s other dates in Denver and Toronto.

Three-day passes are still on sale for Riot Fest Chicago, with single-day tickets going on sale “soon.”
