I was more commenting on the syntax. You used "can't," probably meant "can." Just clarifying.
I think these announcements not only mean we're not going to Yeasayer but probably not Psychedelic Furs either. And my purchase of a Metric ticket is going to be delayed even further. Priorities.
EDIT: Just realized the process you're currently in to find out is with regard to who else is playing the Congress fest.
I think Congress is still finalizing the details. The Tallest Man on Earth is headlining though.
EDIT* Should be pretty cheap as well. It was 5 per day when DeVotchka headlined a couple of years back.

http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/upo...ng_to_mesa.phpWell, how's this for a good East Valley announcement day? Not only is Morrissey headed to Tempe's Marquee Theatre in November, but singer/songwriter Fiona Apple has announced a tour that brings her to the Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center on Tuesday, September 18.
Touring in support of her highly anticipated new record, the ridiculously titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver of The Screw And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do (it's one of our five summer picks, actually), which is due out on Tuesday, June 19. Perhaps, if you're interested in hearing it, you could buy the damn thing at a store or download it via a legitimate MP3 retailer.
Apple is also scheduled to appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight on NBC, and recently released the video for the album's first single, "Every Single Night." Tickets are available on Saturday, June 23 according to Apple's site. More info as we get it.
Here's all that's shown on her website, by the way: http://www.fiona-apple.com/tour.html
ALSO, I'm going to buy her album tomorrow at Zia but just took a look at the listing on iTunes and see that there's a special bonus track that I'm presuming is an iTunes exclusive. That's fucking annoying -- I want a physical copy of it and am not about to pay for it twice just for one fucking song. So if anyone else gets the album on iTunes & can be so kind as to upload "Largo," that'd be swell.
Fiona Apple - $49.50 & $59.50
"Tickets go on sale this Saturday, June 23 at www.livenation.com and the Mesa Arts Center box office. To charge by phone call (480) 644-6500."
Morrissey - $49.50
"Tickets, which are $49.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 21, at luckymanonline.com, the Marquee box office and all Bookman's bookstores."

Friday is June 22.
I just copied & pasted from the AZ Central website. Are you trying to tell me that fine news organization had a typo? No. I refuse to believe it.
(Not gonna edit it or else your post would seem unnecessary. I'm looking out for you, Amy.)
Regarding Fiona in Mesa, hopefully I have some sort of connection to the world via phone or internet come Saturday morning. I'll be at some cabin in Heber this weekend. Unless of course someone can buy me a ticket. I can paypal you cash if so. UPS delivered her new album to me yesterday.
Anyone considering a trip to L.A. to see David Byrne and St. Vincent?
Well, I hope it means Friday, Rick.
If it's the Ikeda Theater it's a theater that appeared to be created for classical music performances. It looked slightly more modern than Symphony Hall in Phoenix but it was defintely all seating and I didn't notice a standing or floor section.
Amy: per the Marquee website (well, luckymanonline.com), tickets go on sale June 22, so Friday.
Ivy: there are seats. Just got off the phone with the venue. $59.50 tickets will have a $3.50 service fee + $2.00 restoration fee, so $65 total. However, $3.50 service fee is not applicable if purchasing at the box office. There are 3 rows in the very front that only have 28 seats apiece -- I want a seat there. Ideally seat 14 or 15 in row AA. It's about a 34-mile drive from my house but I may just feel crazy enough to get my ticket old school.
EDIT: link to seating chart -- http://www.mesaartscenter.com/index..../seatingcharts
The Ikeda Theatre has amazing acoustics. My kids sang there with their choir a couple years ago.
I'm sure it is a great venue, but Celebrity Theater seems like it would the choice venue for Fiona.
The Ikeda Theater? Is this new or did another venue succumb to advertising?
Ohhh, I had no idea what Gribbz meant there. hahaha.
Of interest to Amy, from an email I just received:
"Morrissey Presale starts Thursday, June 21st
No Password Required
This is your "First In Line" opportunity to purchase tickets online before the general public!
Presale Date & Time: June 21st at 10AM, ends June 21st at 10PM"
PM me your email address if you didn't get this email from luckymanonline & I'll forward it to you.
Secured my ticket for Moz. Turning into a nice Thanksgiving tradition.
11/28-Dead & Company (MGM Grand Garden Arena)
12/5-Muse (Gila River Arena)
4/15-17-Coachella Weekend 1
4-23-George Strait w/Kacey Musgraves (Las Vegas Arena)
I got caught up in my work and forgot to do this at exactly 10am, but I just bought my Morrissey ticket now, so there are still presale tickets.
$64 with fees.
And what the fuck is up with the Luckyman website? It keeps getting dates off, it says "Friday November 21st" is the show on the email, but my calendar says November 21st is actually Wednesday! That makes a big difference if you ask me (the day before Thanksgiving as opposed to the day after).

I found a presale password for Fiona Apple. Was on the phone with the box office at 10:02 and the first 5 rows were already gone. The woman asked if I wanted to wait a bit to see if something closer than row C became available, put me on hold, then when she got back a couple minutes later, only row F was available. Scored 3 tickets for myself, Ivy, and a friend of hers, seats 16 through 18. Not quite the first row I was hoping for but 9th isn't bad at all, much closer than where I was at the Dodge in 2006 (and where we'll be in Oakland).
If anyone else is interested in this, password is AMPLIFY.
Getting to see Noel Gallagher & Fiona Apple twice, plus Garbage, all in the same year? 17-year-old Rick is seething with envy right now.
Thanks for that Rick! I think i'm going with front row of the Mezz level for this.
You're welcome. Good luck!
Meanwhile, Timestretch, I just got an email that the Dead Kennedys are playing the Marquee on 9/22. Tickets go on sale tomorrow. Thought it was a nice little coincidence considering we were just talking the other night about them and the potential for them to play Coachella.
Nice on the Dead Kennedy's but i'll be at ATP.
I can't figure out if select a seat is a blessing or a curse. I'm still staring at this map and looking at tons of photos and can't decide. I've been to this venue too. Life is hard.
I finally settled on a seat. I took front row Mezz seat 20 which is pretty much dead center.
