PIXIES ROCK V!

The band's last scheduled UK show of the year is a stormer...

PIXIES played what is almost certain to be their last UK show of the year before an adoring crowd at the V FESTIVAL in CHELMSFORD tonight (August 22).

The reformed rockers delighted their fans at Hylands Park with a hit-laden set, with favourites including ’Debaser’, ’Where Is My Mind? and ’Here Comes Your Man’. The result was a near-hysterical ovation from the crowd, which the band lapped up at the front of the stage.

The band as usual said very little, though bassist Kim Deal commented: “This is the first time we’ve played, V. It’s a new thing, isn’t it?”
