Photo Gallery: Co-Headliners Pixies and Weezer Blast Off Spring 2019 Tour

Columbia, SC Colonial Life Arena hosted a packed house who were gathered for the two rock bands, Pixies Weezer. The bands have teamed up again to hit the road for their Spring 2019 co-headlining arena tour. Special guest, Basement, was also in the house to offer support. The shared headlining arrangement allowed for both bands to perform extensive set lists, including tracks off their latest work and other previous albums.

When Pixies took to the stage, they played favorites such as, “Gouge Away”, “Here Comes Your Man”, “Monkey Gone To Heaven”, and “Where Is My Mind?”. Anticipating fans were also able to have their first chance to hear new Pixies music from an album forthcoming later this year. Pixies is Black Francis (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), David Lovering (drums, percussion), Joey Santiago (lead guitar, keyboards), and Paz Lenchantin (bass, violin, backing vocals). For more Pixies, check out their podcast series, “Past Is Prologue”, and get an inside view at the recording sessions.
