Pixies have announced a string of intimate tour dates for December. The shows come in support of the band’s latest album, Beneath the Eyrie, and serve as a precursor to a “major” North American outing planned for 2020.
The six-date tour will take place in smaller capacity venues ranging from Los Angeles’ 500-capacity Troubadour to the 1,400-person Webster Hall in New York. Other stops include Boston, San Francisco, and Toronto.
Additionally, the band won’t be planning out their setlists. Instead, they’ll spontaneously pull from a practiced collection of about 90 songs. The sets will change every night, and neither band nor audience will know which song is next until just about the moment it starts.

Tickets to these shows are priced at $60, and the band is working with promoters to ensure they’ll be strictly unavailable on the secondary market. The only way to guarantee admission is through the band’s website when tickets go on sale this Friday, September 27th, at 1:00 p.m. EDT/10:00 a.m. PDT.
Update: Throwing Muses’ Kristin Hersh will open for the Pixies.
Otherwise, check out Pixies on one of the remaining 23 stops on their European tour, tickets for which are available here.
