Juanes coming to the Straz Center in Tampa




On a day when Beyonce, Fall Out Boy, Fun., Vampire Weekend, The Postal Service and Jessie Ware all announced tours that skipped Tampa Bay, we needed an A-lister to announce a tour stop here, and fast.

Juanes, it seems, was happy to oblige.

The Colombian rock superstar -- one of the biggest Latin acts in the world, and a man Time once called one of the 100 most influential people in the world -- is bringing next tour to Tampa on June 30. Juanes' "Loud & Unplugged Tour" will hit the Straz Center on June 30.

Juanes has sold more than 15 million albums and played stadiums around the globe, and his latest album, Juanes MTV Unplugged, recently won the Latin Grammy for Album of the Year.

Tickets start at $49.50, and they'll go onsale at noon Friday. Click here for details.
