Pixies

One of the Most Influential Alt/Rock Bands of All Time

Pixies, one of the most influential alt/rock bands of all time, will take their signature aural mix of psychedelia, dissonance, surf-rock and loud-quiet-loud on a five-week tour across North America in 2017, the first of a three-leg trek across the continent.  Following stops in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and the band’s first-ever South African concerts, the North American tour will launch at the Fox Theatre in Pomona, CA on Friday, April 21, and will see the band playing theatres and open-air venues.  PIXIES with special guests Cymbals Eat Guitars will play at DPAC on May 11.

Public Access TV* and Cymbals Eat Guitars** will split the support slot over the course of the tour. 

For these 2017 dates, Pixies - Joey Santiago/guitar, Black Francis/guitar & vocals, David Lovering/drums and bassist Paz Lenchantin - will introduce to its North American audiences a brand new stage set designed by their longtime production manager Simon Foster and lighting designer Myles Mangino.  The design is simple and sleek and fashioned around special pods that house all of the lighting, positioned behind the band.  Fans can expect a set list comprised of the classics and catalogue rarities as well as newer songs from Indie Cindy and the band's latest release, Head Carrier.  As is the norm, there will be no firm setlist for Pixies’ shows; their sets, while pulled from nearly 90 songs that the band has rehearsed and is prepared to play, will change somewhat from night to night with every number determined just before it’s performed.

Pixies kicked off the European leg of their 2016-17 global run last November, playing sold-out shows throughout the UK and wrapping up in Birmingham on December 8.

Video Screens

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.

Safety First - Bag Check

For your safety, all guests and their bags are subject to inspection before entry. This inspection may include the use of metal detectors. Restricted items include, but are not limited to, Alcohol, Cameras, Glass Bottles, and Weapons of any kind. In addition, we will also now restrict backpacks and any oversized bags larger than 12 inches by 12 inches x 10 inches (about the size of a standard milk crate). Safety first is our goal.
