Band reveal they will play Brixton Electric show
Pixies have announced plans to play an intimate show in London later this month.
The band will play the 1,500-capacity Brixton Electric on September 27, it has been confirmed, with the gig set to serve as a warm-up for the spate of larger UK shows they will play this November. The band will also headline one night of this year’s iTunes Festival at Camden’s Roundhouse on September 25.
They recently announced four UK and Ireland dates this November (2013) as part of the first leg of a “massive world tour”, and will be joined on the jaunt by new bassist Kim Shattuck, who previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras. Original bass player Kim Deal confirmed she was leaving the band in June.
The new Pixies line-up will play Dublin’s Olympia on November 18, before crossing the Irish Sea for gigs at Manchester Apollo on November 21, Glasgow’s Barrowland on November 22 and London’s Hammersmith Apollo on November 24 and 25.
Pixies will now play:
Camden Roundhouse (September 25)
Brixton Electric (27)
Dublin Olympia (November 18)
Manchester Apollo (21)
Glasgow Barrowland (22)
London Hammersmith Apollo (24, 25)
