From Billboard

Pixies To Tour Through July, Release CD/DVD

As first reported here yesterday, legendary modern rock act the Pixies are in a Southern California rehearsal space preparing to reunite for the first time since 1993. Billboard.com can reveal that the group will hit the road in April for an 11-city warm-up tour of North America, concluding with a previously confirmed May 1 appearance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.

From there, the quartet of guitarist/vocalist Frank Black, bassist/vocalist Kim Deal, guitarist Joey Santiago and drummer David Lovering will head to Europe for a tour that will run from May 28 to July 10. The only confirmed dates at present are support slots for the Red Hot Chili Peppers on June 12 at Dublin's Phoenix Park and June 15 at Paris' Parc des Princes.

Additional details have also come to light regarding the upcoming retrospective and DVD releases first reported here in December. 4AD/Beggars Banquet will issue a 23-track best-of with the working title "Wave of Mutilation -- Best of the Pixies," featuring such classics as "Gigantic," "Dig for Fire," "Monkey Gone to Heaven," "Here Comes Your Man" and a remix of "Debaser."

The DVD, simply titled "Pixies," will feature music videos for "Debaser," "Alec Eiffel," "Here Comes Your Man," Velouria," "Monkey Gone to Heaven," "Dig For Fire/Allison" and "Head On," a 1988 concert from London's Town and Country Club and the documentary "Gouge," sporting testimonials from Bono, David Bowie and Radiohead's Thom Yorke.

While Black has enjoyed a prolific solo career since the Pixies' demise, Deal has released music infrequently with the Amps and the Breeders and Lovering has spent the six years working as a professional magician. "I'd given up drums for a long time," the drummer told Billboard.com last week. "I haven't played them in years and years. It would just be fun to do it again. We just have fun playing."

Amid all the Pixies-related activity, Black will release a double-disc solo album, "Frank Black Francis," in April or May via spinART.

Poor Joey gets left out of the "where have been" paragraph.

First reported there?! Bullox. Why did they reference us and our already posted release if they were first?

Umm...They aren't doing a US tour? I see the "11-city warm-up tour of North America"...but none of those cities are going to be in Ohio...yet we have the Rock Hall...go fucking figure.

Just like in Homerpalooza! "*Scene of Lollapalooza Tour Bus at a fork in the road. They start heading north to Cleveland, stop, and pull back out and start heading south for Cincinatti, stop, pull back, turn around and leave.*"

Another clue that Springfield is actually the Greater Cincinnati area. Yep, another here from Cincinnati realizing I'm going to have to fly to CA if I want to see the Pixies.

I live in Ashland and one of the college students that went to the university here writes for the Simpsons. So there may be more references to Ohio, hehe.

The pixies have a bigger fanbase in europe, I guess that's the reason that they play so long over here.

Considering that Hullabalooza had been on the road for some time before that scene, I don't see it as any indication of that at all.

(As if I haven't seen ENOUGH "Where is Springfield?" threads on the Simpsons newsgroup.)

By the way, will the Pixies be playing in Springfield?
