"We were so moved by this story," said Pixies' Black Francis, "by how many lives had been affected by this, and how the Chilean people banded together to support what can only be described as a miracle. We wanted to do something to show how affected we were by this, so we played a special set at tonight's show, 33 songs for the 33 miners, the longest set we've ever played as a band. We found out five minutes before we went on stage that all of the miners had safely reached the surface. This was definitely one of the most meaningful show we've ever played."
Here's a link to the video of Black/Francis's brief introduction, in Spanish, to the Santiago show:
