I'm not going to the Isle of Wight festival but I would like to see Pixies.
but I so hope they do. One of the best shows I've ever seen at Leeds 2005.
they played reading and leeds they did a warm up at manchester apollo :) im hoping for the same again :)
Annnounced so far; Stockholm and UK.
I would be VERY Surprised if there are not more shows.
Protip: new album is looking hugely likely and a massive support tour next year. I never thought I would say that and it feels bittersweet.
This is coming from a man who actually CRIED, no joke, at the age of 14 knowing that I would never see Pixies live in my life. How wrong was I.
fucking awful when i saw them at the manchester move festival.
like really bad. stunk in fact.
and for the record: i love the pixies.
Just going through the motions and I fucking hate it when bands do that.
id imagine it would get drained in a massive outdoor show, ive seen them 3 times, once at brixton academy (second night) once in florida at hard rock cafe when i was on holiday and once in manchester apollo, all 3 were ace. i couldnt fault them, except maybe for more off bossanova my fave album haha
They were better the year after indoors though int Apollo
was one of the greatest things ever. they opened with Winterlong, i was nearly in tears.
I saw them at Reading when they played as well, but it wasn't as good.
Winterlong then Head On I think? I was right down the front anyway. It was one of the best days of my life.
