Two more bands ditch troubled Jannus Landing


First the Hold Steady moved their free concert from Jannus Landing to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa. Now two more high-profile artsits are doing the same.

Taking Back Sunday (June 16) and Gogol Bordello (July 27) are moving their concerts from Jannus to the Ritz Ybor.

A representative from promoter No Clubs Productions said concern by the artists' management over John C. "Jack" Bodziak's tax troubles was a factor. A tour manager for Taking Back Sunday, through Warner Brothers Records, declined to comment.

The dates and concert times will remain the same, and all existing tickets will be honored.
