Gigantic tour news!
PIXIES, one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time, are bringing their mammoth world tour to Australia and New Zealand in 2020 – Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa. Pixies’ debut releases – the electrifying 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and 1988’s debut full-length album, Surfer Rosa – brought rise to a new genre and defined contemporary music for a generation.
Returning for what will be only their fourth visit to Australia, the band will perform at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on March 10, then head to Brisbane and Sydney before flying west for a final show at Fremantle Arts Centre on March 17. In Sydney, Pixies will play a not-to-be-missed momentous show under the stars at Sydney Opera House Forecourt on Saturday, March 14.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 1pm Thursday, August 8.
My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning 12pm Wednesday, August 7 until 12pm Thursday, August 8.

Pixies will release their brand new and eighth studio album, Beneath The Eyrie, on September 13 (through Infectious/BMG). Visceral, musically cinematic, otherworldly but strangely familiar and a bit unsettling – the album boasts 12 new tracks produced by GRAMMY nominated Tom Dalgety (Ghost, Royal Blood, Pixies’ Head Carrier). Lead single “On Graveyard Hill,” is an in-your-face, classic Pixies tale of imminent, ominous doom. Fans can pre-order the album now. The evolution of the album’s creative process is uniquely documented in a 12-episode podcast entitled It’s a Pixies Podcast.
