Pixies Announce Reunion Tour

Published: 2004-02-11
After much hoopla, the alternative rock band the Pixies have finally announced that they are indeed re-uniting and are going on tour. The members of the Pixies have not played together in over 10 years. In fact, the only band member who has been playing and making music is guitarist Frank Black. The Pixies are planning a warm up tour of North America before leaving for Europe. The tour kicks off in April. The Pixies did not enter a studio to rehearse until the first of February; drummer David Lovering may need to use some of his magic skills to get the band ready in time for the tour. The tour consists of 12 cities that culminate in the Coachella Music Festival in California. Over half of the tour is in Canada, but only the western provinces.

In addition to the tour, 4AD/Beggars Banquet will be releasing a retrospective CD. A DVD of the Pixies will also be released.

April 14 Winnipeg
April 15 Regina
April 17 Saskatoon
April 18 Edmonton
April 19 Calgary
April 21 Victoria
April 22 & 23 Vancouver
