Alternative rockers the Pixies are coming to Winnipeg as part of the second leg of their North American tour.

The trio will play the Burton Cummings Theatre on Thursday, October 9 with special guests Royal Blood.

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 9 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $32.50, $59.59 and $69.50.

After five genre-defining studio albums, Pixies disbanded in 1993, and then launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds all over the globe for seven years, a longer period of time than they were a band originally.
