Just Announced: Tears for Fears, KMFDM, Lyle Lovett, Ratt


Our weekly concert announcements are always a bit of a "Wait, those guys are still alive and playing music" shock, but I've never been quite as blindsided as I was seeing Tears For Fears slated to place Tempe Marketplace in July.


Yes, Tears for Fears. They're still around. In fact, the British they never totally went on hiatus. I can't say for sure, but I suspect their current tour may have something to do with cashing in on Adam Lambert's showstopping version of "Mad World" on American Idol .
