Conan O'Brien tour: "There will be an announcement this week"

There was a flurry of excitement in Phoenix late last week when reported that Conan O'Brien would kick off his rumored tour with an April 30 show at the Dodge Theatre. However, the Arizona show has mysteriously disappeared from Ticketmaster's web site, and the company states that they have "no record of that show." As for the Dodge, a representative told Movieline that they had "no knowledge of the event" or "any knowledge of Ticketmaster’s claim that the event ever existed."

Here's the official word from Conan's publicists, 42West: "It’s too premature to comment on anything at this point. There will be an announcement this week."

At least Cocophiles can keep up with O'Brien through his funny Twitter feed. The latest: "If I had a show, I'd tweet about which Oscar winner is coming on tonight. Instead, here's my favorite frozen vegetable: Peas!"
