Coldplay and Blur are among the crowd witnessing the US indie legends' amazing UK comeback gig...

BLUR drummer DAVE ROWNTREE were among the stars out to see US indie legends Pixies‘ first UK show in 13 years last night (June 2).

The reformed band played the first of four sold-out nights at London Brixton Academy, kicking off their 25-song set with their cover of [url=]Neil Young’s ‘Winterlong’.

The group ran through almost all of their most well known songs to a near-hysterical audience reaction, although bizarrely ‘Where Is My Mind?’, recently voted the best [/a] song by readers of NME.COM, was omitted.

Outside the venue, tickets were thin on the ground, and many fans were spotted pleading for spare tickets. Touts were charging up to £150 for a ticket.

The set in full was:


‘Nimrod’s Son’

‘The Holiday Song’

‘Here Comes Your Man’


‘In Heaven/Wave Of Mutilation (UK Surf)’

‘I Bleed’

‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’

‘Bone Machine’



‘No. 13 Baby’


‘Gouge Away’




‘River Euphrates’


‘Broken Face’

‘Something Against You’




‘Wave Of Mutilation’

‘Into The White’

[a] return to Brixton Academy tonight, tomorrow and Saturday (June 3,4,5).
