Ready to feel old? OK, good. Though it's hard to believe that Liz Phair's groundbreaking debut record, Exile in Guyville, is turning 25, it's even harder to believe that it's been eight years since her last release (2010's Funstyle).



To be Phair, the wait is finally over to catch a glimpse of this rocker angel.

Phair announced the details for her upcoming "Amps on the Lawn" fall tour. The 25-date jaunt will kick off in Atlanta and will wrap in Milwaukee in October. Phair will perform at Detroit's Majestic Theatre on September 13.



Perhaps one of the coolest babes from the '90s indie rock scene, Phair will tour in celebration of Exile in Guyville's 25th anniversary before embarking on her fall tour.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.

We can forgive Phair for "Why Can't I?" — her rom-com trailer hit from 2003? Instead, throw it back to 1994 below.
