(sure, Pavement tickets are highly coveted, but the band might never match the over-subscribed week long residency of Joe Grushecky)

The Pavement-curated ATP has sold out in what observer calls “record-setting time”, so next up, we’ll see if a headining show at London’s Brixton Academy on the 11th of May can, y’know, shut down the entire internet. Ticketing details are as follows :

There will be a presale for existing O2 customers beginning Wednesday, October 21 at 9:00 AM, another presale for existing Academy Venue Group customers beginning Thursday, October 22 at 9:00 AM and the general on-sale on Friday, October 23 at 9:00 AM.  Tickets will be available from www.ticketweb.co.uk, www.seetickets.com, www.gigantic.com, www.stargreen.com and www.lastminute.com.

Lovers of rock history will recall Pavement’s final show took place at this same venue in November of 1999.  More importantly, I once threw up in the balcony (5 April, 1992, Rollercoaster Tour).  I dunno if the venue’s new owners are interested in a plaque of some sort, but the label’s publicity dept. would be happy to discuss this at any time.

    Hello Matador and Pavement fans!

    Information about Pavement’s tour is scattered and hard to find details about. Is there a central website where I can read about new dates and ticket sales, etc.? I would love an easier way of watching this.

    Thanks!
