Lady Antebellum reschedule Tampa concert for May 17



Details are scant, but it looks like Lady Antebellum are making good on their promise to come to Tampa.

Last August, the group announced a Feb. 7 concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, only to renege two months later. Now, according to their website, they'll be extending their "Take Me Downtown" Tour into Summer 2014 ... and it looks like they've set a date in Tampa on May 17.

No venue has been announced, but it should come soon -- it sounds like this'll be part of Live Nation's annual country Megaticket, the details of which should be unveiled next week. Megaticket shows are usually at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, not the Forum, but you never know. Tickets could be available as early as next week, according to their announcement.

As for who will open the show: Lady A says current openers Kacey Musgraves and Kip Moore will continue on some of the newly announced dates, with some combination of Billy Currington, David Nail and Joe Nichols on the others. We expect all this will be sorted out soon.
