Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Fall Out Boy Announce Phoenix Concerts

Fresh off their ridiculous new hit "Downtown," a song that's literally about buying a moped, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis announced a nationwide tour today, including a stop in Phoenix.

The hip-hop duo will stop by Comerica Theatre on Friday, January 9. 

I mean, look at that suit in the picture. Green leather, studded with leather frills and full-sleeve zippers. On a moped. That the song exists at all (not to mention how it features undisputed hip-hop godfathers Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, and Grandmaster Caz) is, quite frankly, astounding. 
In other concert news, Fall Out Boy is gracing the Valley almost exactly a year after the band's previous concert. The band will play Talking Stick Resort Arena (formerly known as US Airways Center) on Friday, March 25.
