Nicky Jam bringing Fenix USA Tour to Amalie Arena in Tampa
Tampa's push to become a stronger market for major Latin pop just got another big boost.
Boston-born, Puerto Rican-raised singer, rapper and songwriter Nicky Jam (El Perdon) will bring his Fenix USA Tour to Amalie Arena in Tampa on July 1. Joining him are Zion and Lennox, De La Ghetto and Valentino. Tickets are $49 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here.
It's Amalie Arena's second major Latin show in a year, following a hit show by by bachata king Romeo Santos last June. Throw in an upcoming concert by Carlos Vives at the USF Sun Dome, and Tampa's slowly making ground on Orlando when it comes to booking major Latin acts.
