Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.






















Well that was an interesting few weeks, now wasn't it? First it was announced that Phoenix's US Airways Center would be the first date (November 10) on the upcoming Fame Kills tour featuring co-headliners Kanye West and Lady Gaga. Today comes the news that the tour is no longer. Bad news for fans of both artists, all 5 of you. Also bad news for those hoping to masterfully dodge security, run up on stage and take Kanye's mic and interrupt him...or something like that. What? No, I was never planning to do anything of the sort. What would lead to you believe I harbor any ill will towards the man? LiveNation has announced that refunds will be issued, offering a borderline sarcastic "Sorry!" for those who already bought their tickets. More on this whole debacle as it becomes available.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
