Following rave reviews of their 2020 Auckland concert at Spark Arena, Pixies will reprise their Come On Pilgrim… It’s Surfer Rosa show in Christchurch in December, 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 Come on Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa in their entirety - in Christchurch.
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 Christchurch show 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.
