Pixies Announce U.S. 'Doolittle' Tour

Pixies' members have added a number of U.S. dates for their 20th-anniversary tour celebrating the 1989 album Doolittle. The group will perform every song from the classic record, along with B-sides, live in concert.

"We wanted to do something special," singer Black Francis said recently. "We thought this was a good opportunity to play all the songs from that album, something we don't normally do at a regular gig."

Black Francis, Kim Deal, David Lovering and Joey Santiago will all take part in the tour, which begins Sept. 30 in Dublin. The band will hit Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, Holland, Belgium and France before heading to the U.S. in the fall.

Tickets go on sale sometime in August. Are you amped up and eager to go? Even if you're not a Pixies fan, do you like it when bands perform entire albums live?
