POSTPONED | Pixies: Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa
Tue 17 Mar 2020 | 6:00pm — 10:00pm
PIXIES, one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time, are bringing their mammoth Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa world tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2020.
Pixies’ debut releases, the electrifying 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and 1988’s debut full-length album Surfer Rosa, brought rise to a new genre and defined contemporary music for a generation.
The tour will bear witness to both seminal albums being performed in full as well as new and old tracks spanning their extensive catalogue. This tour marks only their fourth visit to Australia.
Forming in Boston, Massachusetts in 1986, Pixies are often acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering alternative band of the late 80s, garnering extraordinary critical and popular acclaim.
After five genre-defining studio albums, Pixies disbanded in 1993. The tide turned in 2004 – the band reunited and began touring, playing to sell-out crowds around the world including their first-ever Australian performances in 2007, later to be followed by a 13-show sold-out Doolittle tour in 2010 and again in 2017.
Pixies will release their new and eighth studio album, Beneath The Eyrie, on September 13 (through Infectious/BMG). Featuring 12 tracks including lead single On Graveyard Hill, the evolution of the album’s creative process is uniquely documented in a 12-episode podcast entitled It’s a Pixies Podcast.
