fun. is playing a Phoenix-area show on their tour after all -- an in-store signing and performance at Zia Records in Chandler. Touring in support of their upcoming record, Aim and Ignite, which we reviewed in last week's paper, the new project by former Format member Nate Ruess will stop by the store at 6 p.m. on August 29.
The Tucson show we told you about when the tour was first announced has been pulled off the band's itinerary, meaning this is the only Arizona show for the band.
You can read a review of the band's first Phoenix show here.
Along with being the "official" record store of Coachella this is quite a coup for Zia, which seems to be on a major hot streak.
