Pixies Enlist Modest Mouse and Cat Power for Part 3 of North American Tour

The Pixies are gearing up to rock North America with an epic indie triple bill, announcing 19 more dates for their colossal tour. Co-headlining with the illustrious Modest Mouse and backed by the captivating Cat Power, this cavalcade of college rock is set to dominate amphitheaters and even an arena from August to September.

Kicking off the indie-fuelled fiesta on August 20th in Asbury Park, New Jersey, the tour will hit major venues across the country, including a double dose of shows in both New York City and just outside Portland, Oregon—Modest Mouse’s stomping grounds. This whirlwind of a tour wraps up on September 16th in sunny San Diego.

Eager fans can snag tickets for these third-leg performances starting at 10 a.m. local time on Friday, March 31. If you’re feeling lucky, some presales begin as early as tomorrow. Head over to pixiesmusic.com for more info.

The Pixies’ 2023 tour officially launches on May 4, with the first leg featuring support from Slow Pulp (and a special appearance by Pond in Denver). The second round of dates commences on June 8, with Franz Ferdinand and Bully opening for the legendary group.

Comprising original members Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering, along with bassist Paz Lenchantin, the Pixies unleashed their 12-song album Doggerel in September. Produced by the talented Tom Dalgety, this marks the band’s eighth studio album and fourth since their triumphant reunion in 2004.
