Well, how's this for a good East Valley announcement day? Not only is Morrissey headed to Tempe's Marquee Theatre in November, but singer/songwriter Fiona Apple has announced a tour that brings her to the Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center on Tuesday, September 18.
Touring in support of her highly anticipated new record, the ridiculously titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do (it's one of our five summer picks, actually), which is due out on Tuesday, June 19. Perhaps, if you're interested in hearing it, you could buy the damn thing at a store or download it via a legitimate MP3 retailer.
Apple is also scheduled to appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight on NBC, and recently released the video for the album's first single, "Every Single Night." Tickets are available on Saturday, June 23 according to Apple's site. More info as we get it.
