Indie rock kingpins Pixies and Modest Mouse are joining forces for the third and final leg of Pixies’ 2023 North American tour, with Special Guest Cat Power. The third North American leg this year is also the final leg for Pixies’ 2022-23 world tour that launched in March 2022 and will finish in September 2023. The tour has seen the band play sold-out shows across North America, the U.K., Europe, South America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Most recently, Pixies just wrapped a month-long headline run across Europe and the U.K.
The world tour is in support of the band’s latest album, “Doggerel” (BMG), about which the NME reported it “is the most inventive since their reunion nearly two decades ago.”
Live Nation stated, “Pixies’ concerts are well-known for being ‘one-of-a-kind,’ as the band has no predetermined setlists – the ‘next song’ is the one that ‘feels right,’ so you’ll never see the same show twice. And the song choices go deep, as the band – Black Francis (guitar, vocals), Joey Santiago (guitar), David Lovering (drums, background vocals) and Paz Lenchantin (bass, background vocals) – come on to every stage prepared to play any of the 90-100 songs they've rehearsed.”
