Doors are set to open at 7pm and they are being supported by a band called The Big Moon.


Unfortunately tickets for the Pixies are sold out.

The Usher Hall website states, “Pixies want to caution fans that if a ticket is being sold for more than its face value, or if a ticket is found to be on sale anywhere other than the official ticket agents (Usher Hall or Ticketmaster), it will be invalid, at risk of being canceled, and will be resold to a fan at the correct price.”

The Usher Hall website goes on to say, “For those fans who purchase tickets and are then unable to attend, they can resell their tickets at face value online via Twickets.”

You can set up an alert on Twickets to be notified if tickets become available.


This is the set list from the Pixies’ performance at the O2 Apollo in Manchester, where they performed on 18 September, five days before their Edinburgh performance.
