Pixies have canceled their upcoming fall tour amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

The itinerary includes a run of headlining dates beginning September 10 in Port Chester, New York, as well as sets at festivals including Summerfest and Riot Fest.

“Pixies have determined that with the current surge in COVID cases made worse by the Delta variant, this is the right decision for their fans, crew members and themselves, and ask that their fans stay safe and healthy,” a press release reads.

Pixies were also scheduled to open for two Nine Inch Nails shows in Cleveland. Those were scrapped last week when Trent Reznor and company announced they were canceling all live shows for 2021.
