The Shins will make their triumphant return to Phoenix to play Comerica Theatre on Tuesday, October 3.
This will be the band's first show in the Valley since the release of their critically acclaimed fifth album, Heartworms, which arrived on March 10. They played a set that was heavy with those new tracks at McDowell Mountain Music Festival, a week prior to the album's release. If you didn't know the songs then, you have the entire summer to brush up on their entire catalog, including fan favorites from Oh, Inverted World and Chutes Too Narrow.
They will be joined by beloved Austinites Spoon, and Phoenix will be one of only four West Coast stops they'll make together. They will also be armed with new songs from their latest album, Hot Thoughts, which dropped on St. Patrick's Day. If you haven't had the infectious title track stuck in your head since then, take a listen below and get ready to have it permanently on a loop for a while.
These two indie powerhouses together are sure to put on a memorable show that most of the country won't get to see. But you won't have bragging rights if you don't score tickets, which go on sale Friday, April 14. Prices range from $39.50 to $50 through Live Nation or at the Comerica Theatre box office.
