Conan O'Brien Makes Phoenix Date Official, Announces Full Tour

Conan O'Brien has announced via his twitter account (@ConanOBrien) that he will tour North America this spring.

O'Brien's "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour" will span 30 dates will kick off April 12 in Eugene, Oregon and will come through Phoenix on April 30. Much speculation had been made whether or not Conan would play Phoenix because of an early screenshot taken from Ticketmaster's Web site, but, fear not, Valley fans, the spurned Tonight Show host is coming.

Billed as "a night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence," Conan O'Brien will play Dodge Theater on Friday, April 30. Tickets range from $36.50 to $692 -- the latter price being the "Meet & Greet" package. They are available now via Ticketmaster

Methinks Jay Leno has never been, nor ever will be, invited to play Bonnaroo. Hopefully, this tour will prove to a TV network that Conan is a very viable option who can still bring plenty of viewers. Here's hoping he sells out the Dodge Theatre.
