For the 10th edition of its biggest annual event, 98 Rock is calling up some old friends.

Frequent, favorite guests Shinedown, Three Days Grace and Seether will headline the 2018 edition of 98 Rockfest, the station announced Friday. Also on the bill for the concert, which takes place April 20 at Amalie Arena: Fozzy, Starset, 10 Years and Powerman 5000 and more.

98 Rock is calling this "The Big 10," a nod to its evolution into one of Tampa Bay's biggest annual hard rock happenings. And the artists on the bill will no doubt share the love.

"We love playing Tampa," Fozzy singer (and pro wrestler) Chris Jericho, a Tampa resident, told the Times in a recent interview. "It's a great rock and roll town, and actually 98 Rock is playing Judas in rotation, so for the first time, Fozzy's on rotation in Tampa."

As always, the show will be preceded by a free concert outside Amalie Arena. Otherwise, tickets to get in start at $29 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday. Click here and here for details.
