Boys Like Girls, All Time Low, Good Charlotte lead Bamboozle Roadshow lineup at Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre


Can't make it to the Bamboozle New Jersey to see Weezer, Paramore and MGMT? Can't make it to the Bamboozle California to see AFI and Something Corporate? Can't make it to the Bamboozle Chicago for Cobra Starship and 3OH!3?

Fear not. Because the Bamboozle is coming to you.

This year's Bamboozle Roadhshow is supersizing things this year for a concert May 26 at the Ford Amphitheatre. The acts on the bill: Boys Like Girls (above), All Time Low, Hanson, Good Charlotte, Cartel, Forever the Sickest Kids, Cady Groves, Great Big Planes, Mercy Mercedes, The Downtown Fiction, The Ready Set and Vita Chambers.

The thing is, this year's Bamboozle Roadshow is actually featuring a rotation of acts, meaning the lineups aren't the same in each city. So while Tampa's lineup is pretty decent, some of the acts we're not getting include LMFAO, Third Eye Blind, A Cursive Memory, Hellogoodbye, Simple Plan, Shwayze and I Fight Dragons.

It's a mixed bag. On the one hand, we're not getting Third Eye Blind, and you will find no bigger Third Eye Blind fans than us here at SoundcheckCorp. (see here, here and here). On the other, we don't have to put up with LMFAO or Schwayze. (The verdict: Push.)

There's no word yet on ticket prices, but tickets are scheduled to go onsale Tuesday, March 2, according to the Bamboozle Web site.

What do you guys think? Did Tampa get screwed on the Bamboozle Roadshow lineup? Or did we get the best of the best?
