Rockers The Pixies will be working overtime on their upcoming US summer (05) tour by playing a series of double shows on the same day.

The group will play matinee and evening concerts at selected stop-offs, beginning with two shows on 26 May (05) in Portland, Oregon, where frontman Frank Black now lives.

The group's agent MARC GEIGER says, "The first show would be a set of rare songs and B-sides, and the second would be the hits."

Meanwhile, the group is putting the finishing touches to a live DVD chronicling their 2004 reunion tour.
