SoundBytes: Demi Lovato, Twenty One Pilots, Eddie Izzard, Creed Bratton and more



-- Orlando's Amway Center just booked two huge concerts on Monday that aren't coming to Tampa ... but the good news is, we will get a taste of them first. First it's Demi Lovato, above, and Nick Jonas, who will bring their co-headlining "Future Now" Tour to Amway on June 25 ... about six months after they both play the 93.3-FLZ Jingle Ball on Dec. 19. Tickets to the Orlando show go on sale Friday. Click here. Then on July 1, alt-rock duo Twenty One Pilots will headline Amway for the first time ... but first, they'll headline 97X Next Big Thing on Dec. 5 at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. Tickets are $33 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here.

-- Celebrated comic Eddie Izzard is coming to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Nov. 30. Tickets are $46.50 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here.

-- If we were to tell you that Creed was coming to the Local 662 in St. Petersburg, how would you feel? Now, how about if we told you Creed Bratton from The Office was coming to the Local 662? Completely different ballgame, right? Well, get ready, because Bratton is coming to the Local on Feb. 27. We expect he'll perform some combination of comedy and music -- if you'll recall, Bratton is a musician of note, having once been a real-life member of the Grass Roots. Tickets to see him in St. Pete are $20-$40. Click here.
