Pixies Add Extra Show at GIAF 2020 Heineken® Big Top

3 December 2019

Due to phenomenal demand, rock legends Pixies will play an additional Heineken Big Top gig Thursday 16 July 2020.

One of the fastest selling concerts in Festival history, Pixies’ previously announced 17 July concert sold out the morning it went on sale. Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh are delighted to announce that a second performance by the band has been added to an already stellar 2020 Heineken Big Top lineup.

That means one more opportunity to hear such hits as “Where is my Mind” and “Gigantic” live. Demand for tickets is expected to be very strong so don’t miss the chance to experience one of the most influential bands of the last 30 years Live at the Heineken Big Top.
