Pixies Dedicate Concert to Chiliean Miners (VIDEO)

For their first ever headlining show in Chile, the Pixies dedicated 33 songs to the 33 miners who were trapped underground for 2 months. In a press release, frontman Black Francis said:

We were so moved by this story, by how many lives had been affected by this, and how the Chilean people banded together to support what can only be described as a miracle. We wanted to do something to show how affected we were by this, so we played a special set at tonight’s show, 33 songs for the 33 miners, the longest set we’ve ever played as a band. We found out five minutes before we went on stage that all of the miners had safely reached the surface. This was definitely one of the most meaningful shows we’ve ever played.”

This was the band’s longest show ever, and the set list included some of their biggest hits.
