Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
It seems 98 Rockfest has grown so popular that there's now a mini version of it coming to Tampa in December.
Well, not officially, of course. But Five Finger Death Punch (above, who headlined 98 Rockfest's lineup in 2015) and Shinedown (one of the top bands this year) are teaming up for a major fall and winter tour that looks and feels quite a bit like 98 Rock's annual metal-palooza. Joining them on this trek are SIXX:A.M., featuring Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx; and British rockers As Lions.
A big slate of heavy bands, all one night? Yeah, that does sound a little like a certain festival we're used to seeing in Tampa each April. Only this time, it'll hit Amalie Arena on Dec. 9.
Tickets are $37.50, and they go on sale Aug. 26. Click here for details.
Now the wait is on for the lineup to 98 Rockfest 2017. Can it top this one? We'll see.
