All of the shows will be recorded and the CDs will be made available immediately after every show at the band’s merch table; all live CDs can also be ordered at www.doolittlelive.com.

A special pre-sale begins on Monday, 7 June at 9AM EST, via the Pixies new website www.pixiesmusic.com – the band’s first official website. Pre-sale tickets provide access to the best seats at each show, and each purchase comes with a complete live recording of the show, delivered via email the day after the show. There is a clear incentive for fans to take advantage of this pre-sale as the cost of the presale tickets and live recordings is less than the all-in price for tickets at public outlets.
