My Morning Jacket, 311 coming to Hard Rock Live in Orlando




Orlando keeps pulling cool artists away from Tampa Bay. On Monday, two big ones decided to book shows at the same venue.

My Morning Jacket -- who earned much-deserved respect from Soundcheck as one of this year's best Bonnaroo headliners -- are coming to Hard Rock Live on Dec. 11, according to their website. Delta Spirit will open. Tickets are scheduled to go onsale this weekend, though we have no prices yet.

(Side note: We recently challenged readers to give us the lowdown on a long-since-passed show by TV On The Radio at New World Brewery, and you obliged. So now we'd like to do the same with MMJ -- we've always heard they played New World back in the day, which is crazy, since they've gone on to play arenas and amphitheatres. Do any of you remember that show? Were any of you there? Tell us about it in the comments.)

But before MMJ hits Orlando, Hard Rock Live will get another huge concert by a band so big it has its own festival311.

The Nebraska stoner rock/hip-hop collective will hit Hard Rock Live on Nov. 27, according to the venue's website. Tickets are $42.50-$57.50, and they'll go onsale Sept. 24. Opening the show is DJ Soulman. Click here for tickets.

There's not much more info out there about 311's fall tour plans, so it's possible a Tampa Bay show could be in the works. We'll let you know if we hear something.

Located at Universal CityWalk, Hard Rock Live has a ton of other cool shows coming up that are skipping Tampa Bay, including Poison on Nov. 5, Alice Cooper on Dec. 14 and one of the biggest shows of the year, the long-since-sold-out Adele gig on Oct. 13. Click here for details on them all.
