PIXIES
WITH SPECIAL GUEST BEST COAST

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23 AT 8PM

Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!

Fortified with eight instantly-sold-out U.S. club shows, a sold-out UK/European tour, and critical and fan acclaim for the live shows and five brand-new songs, Pixies announce that a 33-city, coast-to-coast North American leg has been added to its 2013-2014 world tour. The band with special guest Best Coast will play at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, February 23, 2014. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10:00AM at Ticketmaster.com.

Pixies – Black Francis/guitars, vocals, Joey Santiago/guitars, drummer David Lovering, and touring bassist Kim Shattuck – are on the road in support of the band’s first collection of new music in more than 20 years that began with the surprise release of the single “Bagboy” on June 28.   That was followed by the four-track EP-1 that came out of the blue on September 3.  “Andro Queen,” the melancholy, surrealistic sci-fi ballad that opens EP-1, is the project’s brand-new music video, and now available at www.pixiesmusic.com

All of the Pixies dates on this tour will feature a brand new stage set and production, and will give the band an opportunity to not only debut brand new Pixies songs, but to offer the most wide-ranging concert set lists of Pixies music in the band’s career.  As Black Francis told The Daily Beast, “I’m happy that we have new songs to play because playing only the old songs…you’ve already proven that.  You can try to do it better, but you’re not really proving anything to anyone except that you can still do it.”

The Boston-formed Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement.  Their five studio releases and initial six years together effectively blazed the path for groups like Nirvana, Radiohead and Pearl Jam to rise to superstardom.  The Pixies disbanded in 1993 and launched their reunion tour in April, 2004 when virtually every single date sold out within minutes and fans traveled hundreds of miles to attend a show.

Tickets, starting at $42 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Friday at 10am at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.
