To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their classic 1980 album, “Doolittle”, Pixies – Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering have embarked on a very special tour. ‘The Doolittle Tour’ – which arrives in Australia in March 2010. Selling out shows left, right and centre all around Australia! This is the first night in Melbourne at Festival Hall and I felt like this monkey has gone to heaven, photographing one of my all time FAV bands. Seeing Black Francis, up so close, while he singing/screaming “TAME” was fantastic! :)

For the Doolittle Tour, Pixies will perform all of the songs from Doolittle and its related B-sides. Pixies’ classics such as ‘Debaser’, ‘Wave Of Mutilation’, ‘Here Comes Your Man’, ‘Hey’ and ‘Gouge Away’ are all on Doolittle’s track listing.
“We wanted to do something special for Doolittle’s 20th anniversary,” Black Francis said, “and we thought this was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don’t normally do at a regular gig.”
As a special treat, a live 2 CD recording was also made available straight the gig, capturing the night’s performance. What a top idea!
