Brooks & Dunn bringing farewell tour to Tampa June 11
In August, when Brooks & Dunn announced they'd be splitting up after 2010, much of the concertgoing world issued a collective yawn. But come on, that's big news, isn't it? Brooks & Dunn is probably the biggest country duo of all time, right? At least, that's what their dozens of awards -- including a couple of Grammy Awards, not to mention Entertainer of the Year trophies from the ACM and CMA -- would seem to indicate.
So you can expect their farewell tour next summer to be a big one. And it looks like Brooks & Dunn are coming to Tampa June 11, according to their Web site. There's no word yet on a venue, but come on -- it's gotta be the Ford Amphitheatre, right? Brooks & Dunn have played the FordAmp the past five times they've been to Tampa. The last time they played a different venue was the St. Pete Times Forum in 2003.
And remember, Brooks & Dunn are friends of the Dallas Bull who have been known to stop by for a post-concert party or performance. Considering June 11 is a Friday night, you might want to plan to hit the Bull that night after the show.
We'll give you more info on tickets when we get it.
