Today Dan Gibson, a Phoenix-based contributor to Idolator, e-mailed me about two shows we haven't mentioned here yet, but which are definitely worth telling you about.
Leonard Cohen is coming to Dodge Theatre on April 5 (presale tickets Tuesday) and Depeche Mode is coming. We didn't get the Depeche Mode press release, and their site doesn't have it, but the e-mail I got from Dan says they're coming on August 23. What else was announced this week? Well, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood, for one. Also: Forever the Sickest Kids, Mirah and M. Ward. For a full list click the jump.
