A LEGENDARY American rock band is to play in West Yorkshire next summer.

Pixies are the latest act to be announced for Halifax's Live at The Piece Hall 2024.

The band – whose hits include 'Where Is My Mind?, Here Comes Your Man, and Debaser – will headline the iconic venue on Wednesday, August 21.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, November 17 via ticketmaster.co.uk

Pixies are acclaimed as one of the most influential, pioneering bands of the late 1980s alternative rock movement, having served as a major influence for artists such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, The Strokes, and Weezer.

They join Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Richard Ashcroft, Jess Glynne, McFly, Fatboy Slim, Loyle Carner and rock legends Status Quo among the Live at The Piece Hall 2024 headliners – with many more to be announced very soon.

Nicky Chance-Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “What a coup to get this iconic band to Halifax. With a reputation for bringing something unique to every performance, I know their seminal sound will certainly get the courtyard rocking. 

“Pixies have such a passionate fanbase and we can’t wait to welcome them all to our stunning venue for what will be a hugely memorable gig.”
