Pixies headed back to Carolinas

Seminal alternative rock foursome the Pixies brings its seemingly endless Doolittle Tour to Greensboro's War Memorial Auditorium November 8. The original group of Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering, who reunited in 2004, brought the Doolittle Tour to Charlotte in September 2010.

The tour celebrates the 20th anniversary of the band's 1989 album. Of course by now its into its 22nd year. This portion of the tour is being dubbed the "Lost Cities Tour" because the schedule is made up of cities the band has never played in its 25 year existence. Those 19 dates include Greensboro on the 8th and Charleston, SC on November 11.

The band will perform "Doolittle" in its entirety as well as B-sides from that era. During the Charlotte date last year fans were treated to favorite tracks from 1990's "Bossanova" and 1988's "Surfer Rose" as well. Indie-rock act Surfer Blood will open the Carolinas' shows.

A ticket pre-sale which will only be available to the band's email list starts Friday, July 8. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, July 15 at 10 a.m. via or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Details can be found at
