The Pixies will make every show from their upcoming 15-date North American tour available for sale immediately after the performance. The group will be touring with a recording truck from DiscLive that will press a limited run of 1,000 CDs per show (2,000 for the May 1 performance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, Calif.). The double-CD sets will sell for $25 at the venue or $22 if they're pre-ordered through DiscLive's Web site.

At each venue, fans will be able to purchase a voucher prior to the concert. Approximately 10-15 minutes following its conclusion, they will trade the voucher for the show on CD, including artwork specific to that performance. Any CDs that are not sold at the show will be available from the Disc Live site; CDs can also be mailed to the buyer. There is a two-CD limit per customer.

Beginning today (April 1), DiscLive is making 500 CDs from each show available for pre-order online. If all 500 copies are pre-ordered before a given show, only 500 additional copies will be sold at the venue. According to a spokesperson, the discs will not be re-pressed once all copies have been sold.

The Pixies' first tour since 1992 will kick off April 13 in Minneapolis. Following the Coachella performance, the group heads to Europe for a host of headlining and festival appearances. A full-scale North American tour is in the planning stages for the fall.

DiscLive has previously offered post-show CDs from the Doors Of The 21st Century, Billy Idol, Jefferson Starship, the Newsboys and Antibalas.
