Doors Open at 7pm.
Pixies, a long time leader in helping to break the ticket scalper stranglehold, will be working to get their face-value tickets to their fans, and not to touts for inflated resale, something they did very successfully during last Fall’s UK tour. Said Pixies manager Richard Jones, “On this tour, we are asking the promoters and the venues to make available as many tickets as possible for pre-sales. That way, we can help insure that tickets get into the hands of the fans and not the scalpers. We’ve also asked the promoters to remove any secondary site links and to use their anti-tout teams and technology to help combat the scalper market.”
Sunflower Bean, who Rolling Stone called “NYC’s coolest young band,” will provide support on the first half of the tour.
