The band's upcoming reunion shows sell out almost immediately...

Tickets for the Pixies North American reunion shows have sold out, some within three minutes of going on sale.

As previously reported on NME.COM the 19,000 tickets for the band’s London Brixton Carling Academy shows, in June, are completely sold out.

“We were all a little nervous when we first got together,” explained vocalist Frank Black “but within maybe five minutes, everything felt completely comfortable, and it was like the last 11 years had never happened.”

“I experienced what I call ‘muscle memory’,” explained bassist Kim Deal. “We’d be playing a song and I didn’t even have to think about what note came next – my fingers remembered what to play.”

Tickets for the last reunion gig at Freedom Hall in Davis, CA, on April 29 will go on sale on March 1 at 10am. Further European dates will be announced shortly.
