If you're an electronic dance music fan with a ticket for Zedd's performance on Saturday at Mesa Amphitheatre, there's been a slight change in plans. Don't worry, the show's still going to happen as planned, only at a completely new venue.
Live Nation, the co-promoter of this weekend's gig by the superstar electro-house DJ and producer, announced earlier this afternoon it has been moved from outdoor venue Mesa Amphitheater to Comerica Theatre in downtown Phoenix. Its still scheduled for Saturday, September 12, and all tickets will be honored.
The start time for the show, which is part of Zedd's current True Colors Tour in support of his latest album and will feature fellow DJs Alex Metric and Madeon as openers, is now 6 p.m. (Doors will open 90 minutes earlier at 4:30 p.m.)
Live Nation stated in their press release announcing the change that the show was moved to the larger venue because of “technical difficulties” but didn't elaborate further on the matter.
The upshot of Zedd's performance being moved indoors is the fact that attendees won't have to deal with the sweltering heat while getting down and going hard to the all the high-energy electro and house music being slung by the DJ.
Its not the first time that dance music has been featured at Comerica, as the 5,000-person venue previously hosted Steve Aoki in 2011 and Pretty Lights in 2012.
Attendees will have to deal with paying for parking, however, but there's a couple of light rail stations within walking distance.
Tickets, $40 to $50, are still available for the performance
