Gig Information

PIXIES one of the most influential alternative rock bands of all time, return to New Zealand in December for shows in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch.

Tickets go on sale at 2pm Tuesday, April 5.

Vodafone customers can be among the first to secure tickets during an exclusive 48 hour presale, starting at 12pm Friday, April 1. Head to vodafone.co.nz/music.

Following rave reviews of their 2020 Auckland concert at Spark Arena, Pixies reprise their Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa show in Wellington and Christchurch, while in Auckland they will perform a special show comprising major hits and fan favourites from their extensive catalogue, Pixies said;

“We are thrilled to be able to announce our return to New Zealand in December following the untimely postponement of some of these shows back in 2020.

We will be returning to play two different sets across the tour:

Performing Come on Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa in their entirety - in Wellington and Christchurch. A brand new set featuring songs from across our catalogue, including some oldies and some brand new tracks in Auckland.

La la love you!”

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.

At the Wellington and Christchurch shows both seminal albums will be performed in full. Surfer Rosa is a record made up of rage, religion, gore, incest and superheroes named Tony - a debut album so good that it's been revered as a masterpiece. Produced by Steve Albini, it includes early Pixies classics such as Bone Machine, Gigantic, Vamos and Where Is My Mind?. Come On Pilgrim features eight songs from the band's first-ever studio session, produced by Gary Smith and recorded at his Fort Apache Studio near Boston.
