Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa

Forming in Boston, Massachusetts in 1986, Pixies are often acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering alternative band of the late 80s, garnering extraordinary critical and popular acclaim.

Pixies’ debut releases - the electrifying 1987 EP Come On Pilgrim and 1988’s debut full-length album, Surfer Rosa - brought rise to a new genre and defined contemporary music for a generation.

The tour will bear witness to both seminal albums being performed in full – plus new and old tracks spanning their extensive catalogue. Surfer Rosa is a record made up of rage, religion, gore, incest and superheroes named Tony - a debut album so good that it's since been seen as a masterpiece.  Produced by Steve Albini, it includes early Pixies classics such as "Bone Machine," "Gigantic," "Vamos" and "Where Is My Mind?" 

In Sydney, Pixies will play a not-to-be-missed momentous show under the stars, supported by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and RVG, on the Forecourt on Saturday, March 14.

Presented by Live Nation.
