Pixies announce new dates, coming to Charlotte, Asheville

True indie rock royalty, the Pixies, have stayed fairly active since their reformed in 2004, playing shows each year. The band have added some new U.S. dates to their schedule that will bring them to North Carolina in September. Sadly, they won't be coming to the Triangle, but will be heading to Charlotte and Asheville.

They'll play Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte on Thursday, Sept. 9. Pre-sale tickets are available now via the band's pre-sale for $57, but a general on sale date is not available yet.

A few days later, on Sunday, Sept. 12, the band will play the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville. Pre-sale tickets for this show are currently on sale here for $57.50. We'll keep you posted on the general on sale date for this one too.

[UPDATE: Both North Carolina shows will go on sale on Friday, July 9 at 10 a.m. for $39 to $48. Charlotte tickets will be available here and Asheville tickets here.

The band are playing their classic album Doolittle as well as b-sides from the album on their current tour. The sets have been really long and include lots of other songs too. The shows should be phenomenal.

Experimental U.K. group Fuck Buttons will be opening the tour.

Download a free EP featuring live tracks from the album Doolittle via the widget below which includes excellent versions of "Monkey Gone to Heaven," "Crackity Jones," "Gouge Away" and the b-side "Dancing the Manta Ray."
