Updated: Pixies ‘Doolittle’ tour for Olympia two nighter

According to their myspace site, Pixies are going to be playing two nights at Dublin’s Olympia on October 1st and 2nd as part of a short European tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday. Thanks to Thrill Pier for the spot.

Update: The tour is in fact part of the twentieth anniversary celebrations for the band’s seminal Doolittle album, with Pixies playing all the album and related b-sides. “We wanted to do something special for Doolittle’s 20th anniversary,” said Black Francis, “and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t normally do at a regular gig.”

Tickets for the Olympia Theatre are priced €44.20 (Upper Circle Seated) and €54.80 (Standing and Circle Seated) are available from this Friday, July 3 at 9am from the usual outlets.

The tour runs as follows:

1 – Olympia, Dublin, Ireland
