Reforming alt rock legends Pavement has added a fourth and final show at the Brixton Academy in London.
Pavement split in 1999, leaving behind them an almost immaculate back catalogue. Playing one final show in London’s Brixton Aacdemy singer Stephen Malkmus appeared onstage with his hands chained to the mic stand.
Issuing a statement to fans shortly after Pavement explained that they were simply too tired to continue. After a decade of solo careers and diversions in horse racing and computer programming it seems that the band have regained their hunger.
Confirming re-union rumours earlier this year the band announced a four night stint in New York’s Central Park. Soon after this speculation grew that Pavement were set to announce some British shows.
Pavement are set to curate All Tomorrow’s Parties in May next year, bringing along some friends, admirers and personal heroes to complete the party.
Alongside this Pavement have confirmed a stint at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. The same venue where they split up, the band were due to play a trio of shows but have now decided to add a fourth and final gig.
Taking place on May 10th tickets for the show are sure to sell out, with briefs for the three previously confirmed slots already long since snapped up by fans. Confirming a host of other European dates, Pavement are set to re-visit the past in the most stylish way possible.
Pavement have confirmed the following UK tour dates:
10 London Brixton Academy
11 London Brixton Academy
12 London Brixton Academy
13 London Brixton Academy
