It will fit perfect to their tourschedule.
I really hope the talk about not share the same artist as Northsidefestival is old school politic.

Roskilde will be the best stage for Pixies // Marten

And while we're at it, Iron Maiden is free on at least one of the dates from july 4-6! I know that Copenhell already got them, but I don't want to talk about that.

Pixies played very bad show at Roskilde in 2004. I don t think they will come and the reason is they are playing Northside festival

How high/drunk were you? Pixies was one of the best concerts I saw in 2004. Granted, it was very much wham-bam-knock-the-songs-out and then fuck off the stage, but the sound was great and the band didn't make any mistakes. It was pretty much the same as Foo Fighters a year later minus Dave Grohl's legendary walk out among the audience. But yeah, since NS booked them, they won't come - period.

Foo Fighters are always awesome live. Pixies was just boring show, they did not say hello Roskilde or goodbye and they did not talk. It was just like they where just playing for the money and nothing else.

That's just the way 3/4 of Pixies are, but hey – it's untrue that they did not talk at all. Kim Deal engaged with the audience like she always does. The fact that she's out of the band is a great loss for them live, if the new bassist Paz Lenchantin is as introverted and non-talkative on stage as the other band members.

Foo Fighters in 2005, whom I compare them to in this case, weren't very talkative either, at least not until Dave Grohl leapt out among the audience. They just let one song take the other until 'Breakout', which they then extended endlessly, barely making the show last 70 minutes. Pixies on the other hand played well above 90 minutes in 2004 including encore. I think the extra 20 minutes is more than sufficient to make up for being less communicative.

I remember this very well. Pixies did not talk to the crowd and the show was really bad. My friends remember that also, Pixies one of the worst show i have ever been too but i don t think they will play Roskilde. Foo Fighters show in was not long but they are still awesome live and they will tour the world this year and i hope they will play Roskilde and longer show next time.

Well, that's just like... your opinion man. Foo Fighters played a fine show, but it was VERY short. Unsatisfyingly short. So I can't fathom why anyone would highlight that as being "awesome" apart from Grohl running around in the audience, which WAS fun. 70 minutes is nothing and even less, when the only reason the show reached that playtime was that one of the songs was drawn out extensively to accomodate Grohl's crowdpleasing foray. If he hadn't done that, the show probably would have been even shorter, but that was also what saved that Foo Fighters gig from being mediocre.

Pixies at least gave people bang for their buck. They NEVER interact much with their audience because it's not just their style, but Kim Deal adressed the crowd. I remember this very clearly. She introduced 'Gigantic' (which makes sense since it's "her song" and they don't play it anymore exactly because of that). You (and your friends) just don't remember this – or you just didn't notice.

You can say that it was a bad show all you want – it really wasn't. The buttoned up kind of Pixies-"professionalism" is just not "your" kind of rock show. That's why you dislike it – not because they played bad or fucked anything up. So do some research first, and you'll avoid getting disappointed that a band behaves differently on stage than what you're accustomed to. You might as well have walked in on a Fucked Up show and expected Damian Abraham to sing perfectly and not slamdance into the audience like he always does.
