Fiona Apple to Play Merriam Theater

But she only has "about 26% of an idea" of what she'll be playing.

In case you haven’t seen the just-released video for Fiona Apple’s “Hot Knife”, do yourself a favor and watch it now. Then get very excited, because Fiona Apple is coming to Broad Street’s Merriam Theater on October 19th. She’ll be joined by Blake Mills, who played guitar on The Idler Wheel, Apple’s critically-acclaimed 2012 album. There are only 12 cities on their “Anything We Want Tour”, and tickets for the Philadelphia show go on sale this Friday, August 2nd.

As for what to expect on the tour, the press release states that the show is “still in development” but that the artists were persuaded to share a few details:

1) We were sent an assignment to write three or four sentences.

2) These sentences should communicate that we, Fiona Apple & Blake Mills (that’s us), are doing a little tour as a duo.

3) We know it’ll be something special, and we aren’t being coy here — it’s just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you.

4) It was our understanding that the 4th sentence was optional, but here is something that is true: the uncertainty excites us.
