By Bob Needham

Popular French alternative-rock band Phoenix has announced a fall concert date at Eastern Michigan University's Convocation Center.

The band will play EMU on Sept. 29, according to a posting on its website, which is currently offering presale tickets. Prices are listed at $29.50, $37.50 and $44.50.

The Vaccines will open the show.

At this writing, the show is not yet listed on EMU's ticketing website, but the band's Facebook page says tickets will go on sale to the general public June 14.

Phoenix's debut album, "United," was released in 2000. Among their more popular songs are "Too Young," "1901" and "Lisztomania." Their fifth album, "Bankrupt!," was released earlier this spring.
