Tampa Bay Blues Fest lineup: Los Lonely Boys, Delbert McClinton, Tower of Power and more
The lineup for the 2012 Tampa Bay Blues Fest has been out for a while now, but we've been holding off sharing it until we had more details on tickets. Now we do, so here we go!
Los Lonely Boys, Delbert McClinton, Tower of Power, Jimmie Vaughan and Charles Bradley are among the big names on this year's bill. That's a mighty haul of soul, blues and R&B -- but for the casual music fan, the real draw is Los Lonely Boys, above, who scored a bona fide mainstream hit with Heaven. And they have the live chops to back it up, too.
The 2012 Tampa Bay Blues Fest will be held April 13-15 at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, and as always, there will be plenty of after parties to go around. Discounted tickets are available through Dec. 31: $25 for a single-day pass, $70 for a weekend pass and $125-$300 for VIP tickets. Click here to purchase.
