WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20: Close Up Featuring Black Francis, Live Interview at The Albert Hall
Black Francis – the legendary, enigmatic frontman of the Pixies – will be at Manchester’s historic Albert Hall for a no-holds-barred onstage interview conducted by Dave Haslam; followed by questions from the audience.
He will be talking about his life, in private, and with the Pixies; from the groundbreaking albums Surfer Rosa and Doolittle, through the acrimonious split in 1993, the 2004 reunion, the recent departure of Kim Deal, to the new material, including ‘Bagboy’ and EP-1. His songwriting always thrillingly unconventional and intriguing. So much to talk about; a man and a band that have always been loved and influential.
This is the latest of Dave Haslam’s ‘Close Up’ series of live onstage in-conversations. Previous ‘Close Up’ guests have included Jeremy Deller, Will Self, Jeanette Winterson, Jonathan Franzen, Kevin Rowland, Bernard Sumner and Nile Rodgers.
Doors at 6.15pm – full bar available – event starts 7.45pm.
TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED HERE.
