Modest Mouse, Brand New coming to Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre



Modest Mouse and Brand New have critical acclaim and legions of diehard fans. Any alt-rock festival in the world would happily throw them near the top of a poster.

But are they ready to co-headline a massive amphitheatre tour this summer?

Guess we'll find out on July 9, when Modest Mouse, above, and Brand New bring their co-headlining summer tour to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. The bands are taking turns headlining each day of this trek; Modest Mouse will close the show in Tampa.

Make no mistake, a healthy crowd will definitely be on hand for this one. Modest Mouse headlined a Day 1 sellout of last year's Gasparilla music festival; 10,000 fans turned out. And Brand New's 2014 concert at Jannus Live was one of the fastest-moving in the venue's history, selling out in under an hour.

If you missed seeing them then, this is your best chance to catch them both -- a venue as large as the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre is unlikely sell out for this show. (But you never know. Underestimate the appeal of Isaac Brock and Jesse Lacey at your own risk.)

Tickets are $29.95 and up, and they'll go on sale Jan. 29. Click here for details.
