Alt-rock outfits Jimmy Eat World and The Maine are arguably two of the biggest acts to come out of Phoenix in the last several decades.

And they just announced a co-headlining, one-night-only show.

The two bands will play at Arizona Federal Theatre in downtown Phoenix on Friday, October 28. Supporting acts are Thursday, PVRIS, and up-and-coming local singer-songwriter Sydney Sprague.

Jimmy Eat World hails from Mesa and will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next year. The Maine comes from Tempe and just passed its 15th birthday.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 30. Visit Ticketmaster for more details.
