Christina Aguilera coming to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg

If you think people will go crazy when Justin Timberlake comes to Tampa next week, just wait until they hear about Christina Aguilera.

The two turn-of-the-millennium pop superstars once toured together, back in 2003 — click here for a review of their show in Tampa — and they'll both be back here 15 years later.

In her first big tour in more than a decade, Aguilera is coming to the surprisingly intimate Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg on Nov. 13. It'll be her first stop in Tampa Bay since 2007.

Tickets, which go on sale to the public May 18, start at a whopping $82, but considering she usually plays arenas, that might actually be a deal. She's gearing up to release a new album, Liberation, in July (and every ticket purchased online includes a copy). And of course she'll be warbling out hits like Genie In a Bottle, Beautiful and Dirrty in her huge, huge voice.

Click here for details on the show.

It was a Junior Walker song, (I'm a) Road Runner, that did it, that untethered James Taylor from his six-string and barstool.He grabbed a harmonica, kicked up a heel or two, shook and wiggled and hopped on one foot, and probably would have danced eve...
