(Newser) – Conan O'Brien will do a live show in Phoenix next month, part of the long-rumored tour that allows him to continue performing without violating his NBC exit deal. Tickets for the April 30 show go on sale Monday. Conan will announce further dates next week on his Twitter page. A live comedy show allows the ousted Tonight Show host to capitalize on the buzz generated by his battle with NBC, which made a ban on TV appearances before September a condition of his $32.5 million severance package.
