The Pixies On Tour

The Pixies are on tour. Those of you who are fans of the band know why this is a momentous statement. The Pixies haven't been on tour since 1992, right before they broke up in 1993. 11 years later, all original band members, Frank Black (back then known as Black Francis), Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering, are together and performing. It's amazing to see this happening, especially when you consider how the end of the band went down. Read about the history of The Pixies here. From Entertainment Weekly to various fan sites, people are raving about the current tour and stating that it's almost as if the band had never broken up. The band is on tour in Europe now and will be coming back to the states for some Lolapalooza dates and a US tour during the Fall. I never had a chance to see them back when I was originally a fan in the late '80's/early '90's. I won't be missing my chance again.
