Pixies Announce World Tour and Kim Deal Replacement
The band will be kicking off their first tour in almost two years on September 29th in Paris, France and have announced dates through November 24th where they will play the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
The band also announced that Kim Shattuck will be taking over bass duties for the trek, following the recent news that Kim Deal has parted ways with the group.
Shattuck had previously played bass for The Pandoras and played guitar for The Muffs. She will join the lineup that includes Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering and the band plan a diverse set list for the trek, according to Francis.
"Along with everyone's favorites, we'll be playing songs that we haven't played in ages or never played live before," said Black Francis. "Songs like 'Brick is Red,' 'Havalina,' 'Tony's Theme.' and 'Sad Punk.' We've probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we'll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it. We're all really looking forward to this tour."
