The Pixies Tour Kicks Off September 7
Thu, 02 Sep 2010 12:10:43
This post serves as just a little reminder that The Pixies are extending the 20th anniversary celebration of the release of their classic 1989 album Doolittle. The alt rockers are about to kick off the second leg of their US "Doolittle Tour," performing the groundbreaking album in its entirety. At all of these shows, fans will have the opportunity to commemorate the evening by taking that night's performance home with them. Beginning at next week's September 7 kick-off at Tower Theatre in Philadelphia, fans can purchase a CD of that night's show about 10 minutes after the Pixies finish their encore. The CD can be purchased at the venue, or can be pre-ordered at www.doolittlelive.com; fans can choose to either pick the CD up at their local Pixies show or have it sent to them. For those who can't make it to any of the 16 shows on this leg, the CDs for all of the shows will be available through www.doolittlelive.com. That's how the gift of a show keeps on giving.
Abbey Road Live Events will be recording every Pixies show from the September 7 show all the way through the end of the tour in San Diego, CA on September 26. The shows will be offered as limited edition, high quality CD sets: each CD set will have two discs in it, and each CD set being individually numbered. The two-CD sets will sell for $25 each, and will be mixed and mastered every night, resulting in full, multi-track mixes, not board mixes. The CDs are strictly limited edition; only 1,000 will be made per night for each show.
