Grammy Awards: Taylor Swift, Juanes, Miranda Lambert among winners, performers coming to Tampa Bay




The 55th Grammy Awards are in progress, and it's time for us to ask: Which winners and performers from Sunday night's ceremony are coming to Tampa Bay? 

While we're unlikely to get a show by Mumford & Sons, the Black Keys or Frank Ocean anytime soon, we do have some good news: Plenty of Grammmy winners and performers do have shows booked here. Here's a rundown:

-- Taylor Swift, of course, who opened the Grammys and won an award, will be at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on April 19 -- but good luck getting tickets to that one. You might try your luck at her shows in Orlando on April 11 and 12. At all shows, Grammmy performer Ed Sheeran will open up.

-- The very next night, April 20, Grammy performer and winner Rihanna will perform at the Forum. Click here.

-- The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, who performed with the Black Keys and Dr. John, will be at the Mahaffey Theater with the Del McCoury Band on Feb. 17. Click here.
