Pixies will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their album Doolittle with an appropriately titled tour - The Doolittle Tour - that will see the band play dates in London, Dublin, Scotland, among other cities in October.

On this tour, Pixies will perform all of the songs from Doolittle and its related B-sides. Pixies' classics such as Debaser, Wave Of Mutilation, Here Comes Your Man, Hey and Gouge Away are all on Doolittle's tracklisting.

"We wanted to do something special for Doolittle's 20th anniversary," said Black Francis, "and we thought his was a good opportunity to play all of the songs from that album, something we don't normally do at a regular gig."
