These will be the first Pixies Doolittle shows of 2010. The 20th anniversary of the release of the band’s Doolittle is extended by 2010 U.S. “Doolittle Tour.” The album start-to-finish, as well as its related B-sides will be performed by the pixies. With specially designed videos, the concert is also a massive multimedia show.
The band has announced an 11-city Doolittle tour that will be started on September 7th in Philly, and ends on the 26th in San Diego. All of the songs from Doolittle plus B-sides like “Weird at My School” and “Dancing the Manta Ray” will be played by them.

In Dublin, Ireland, The “Doolittle Tour” was launched on 30 September, 2009. The DOOLITTLE will be played sold-out shows everywhere like Scotland, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, with 20,000 fans over four nights in London and last November, it came to America. Live recordings of all of the shows with CDs will be available by Pixies last time, for sale the very same night at their merch table immediately after the show.
The concert will start with the show of silent surrealist short film of 1929, “Un Chien Andalou,” which was produced in France by Spanish director Luis Bunuel and artist Salvador Dali, and provided the impetus for Black Francis in writing “Debaser.” Audiences will be able to purchase a CD of the show that they just saw right at the venue, at the end of every show.
