SoundBytes: Usher, Robyn, Yes and more




-- If you dug Usher's performance at halftime of Super Bowl XLV, good news: He's coming to Florida. Bad news: At the moment, he's only planning to come to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. Actual dates are scheduled to be announced later this week.

-- It looks like Robyn, and not Marina and the Diamonds, will be opening for Katy Perry at the St. Pete Times Forum on June 10. That could be -- what's the word we're looking for? -- awkward.

-- According to their website, prog-rock heroes Yes are coming to Jannus Live on March 11. Still waiting for ticket info, but this is also interesting: They're performing a free show March 12 in Orlando as part of WMMO's Downtown Concert Series.

-- John Legend has been added as the opening act for Sade's concert July  17 at the Amway Center in Orlando.

-- If you like Toad the Wet Sprocket, we have doubly good news: Singer Glen Phillips is performing this Friday at the Hidaway Cafe in St. Petersburg, and Ticketmaster says the full band is performing May 1 at the Ritz Ybor. Tickets are scheduled to cost $22 and go onsale Feb. 24. Click here.

-- Another big-name comic is leaving the friendly confines of the Improv: Brian Posehn is slated to perform April 15 at Crowbar in Ybor City. Tickets are $16. Click here.

-- Switzerland's favorite band, the Bellamy Brothers of Pasco County, are performing at the Dallas Bull on Feb. 25. Tickets are $10-$12. Click here.
