Alabama Shakes coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg
If you've been to a major festival in the past couple of years, odds are you've seen a show-stopping performance by Alabama Shakes, trembled before the might of Brittany Howard's voice, and wondered, "When in the world will these guys coming to Tampa Bay?"
Wonder no more. The Grammy-nominated blues-rock group from Athens, Ala., is coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Friday, Dec. 6. Clear Plastic Masks will open the show. Tickets are $34.50-$38, and we wouldn't be surprised if this one sells out well ahead of time. Click here for details.
The group, which was nominated for Best New Artist at this year's Grammys, also appeared on Saturday Night Live in February, during which they played their hit Hold On. If you're a fan of gospel-tinged rock 'n' roll, there's no better show this fall.
