Pixies Announce ‘Doolittle World Tour’

Indie rock superstars The Pixies are continuing their 20th anniversary celebration of their iconic album, Doolittle, by doing a fall US tour. The opening act will be Surfer Blood who will join The Pixies from the beginning of the tour until Nov. 11th. Starting Nov. 14th, Imaginary Cities will take over as the opening act. You can order tickets here.

An imaginative cinematic production has been created for The Doolittle Tour. Designed by long-time Pixies lighting designer Myles Mangino and designer Paul Normandale, the set features four huge, undulating, eyeball-like spheres flown just below the lighting rig and are part of the concert’s light show. Filmmakers Judy Jacobs, Tom Winkler, Brent Felix and Melinda Tupling were brought on board to create 12 films especially for the production. The films are projected onto a massive backdrop video screen to accompany 12 of the 21 songs that comprise the show.
