Though Radio City Music Hall seemed like the next logical step, Grammy winning “alternative” artists Phoenix just announced a show at “The World’s Most Famous Arena” along with Brooklyn art-pop act Dirty Projectors on October 10, 2010. Sort of an odd combination sonically speaking, but I’m sure they have a lot of crossover fans. Hard to believe it was just over a year ago that these guys played their first gig supporting Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets ($29.50–$49.50) for Phoenix’s Madison Square Garden show go on American Express presale starting on Mon, July 12 at 10AM, general on sale begins on Sat, July 17 at 10AM.

Check out a bunch of videos from Phoenix‘s recent MTV Unplugged performance and more tour dates after the jump.
