The Pixies continue to map out a busy 2010, with newly announced plans to follow up the band’s second round of U.S. ‘Doolittle’ concerts with a string of Latin American shows this October in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
Having already played more than 40 concerts on their wildly successful ‘Doolittle’ 20th anniversary tour, the Pixies will bring the show back to the U.S. for an 11-date run in September, hitting cities the band skipped last fall.
The Pixies this morning announced “two very special, fan exclusive shows” at The Troxy in London on June 3 and 4, and are offering a free download of live audio and video of ‘Doolittle’ track ‘La La Love You.’
While it’s an album hardly in need of commemoration given last year’s high-profile tour and a looming reissue, the Pixies’ beloved Doolittle — from which this site gets its name, of course — was released 21 years ago today.
A group of Israeli human rights activists have asked the Pixies to cancel their June 9 concert in Tel Aviv to protest ‘the military occupation the Palestinian people have been living under,’ urging the reunited band to ‘refuse to perform in Israel until there is freedom here.’
The canonization of the Pixies’ beloved Doolittle continues with Beggars Archives’ just-announced plans to release an “Omnibus Edition” of the 1989 album, with a new surround mix, the record’s demos and possibly a Blu-ray included in the expanded box set.
