Info about this concert :
Last night, the Pixies
played their first-ever headlining show in Chile at the Teatro La Cupula in Santiago. The band's performance happened to fall on the same night that the 33 miners were rescued after spending 69 days trapped 2,000 feet below the surface after a mining accident. 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 onstage that all of the miners had safely reached the surface. This was definitely one of the most meaningful shows we've ever played."
