Summerland Tour: Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6, Spacehog to play free concert at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg
Free concerts are good. But you know what's really great? A free festival.
So we're mighty intrigued by this year's Summerland Tour, which features founders Everclear and fellow '90s-rock heroes Soul Asylum, Eve 6 and Spacehog -- and which is promising a free concert in St. Petersburg's Vinoy Park on June 14.
According to Ticketfly and a rep for Everclear, the June 14 event will run from 2 to 9 p.m.. That seems like a long time for just four bands; maybe this concert will end up being part of a larger, yet-to-be-determined event. Either way, general admission tickets are indeed free, and VIP admission are just $29.75, which is not a bad deal in and of itself. We'll bring you further details on this concert as they become available.
Last year's Summerland Tour, which brought Everclear, Live, Filter and Sponge to the Mahaffey Theater, was an unexpected hoot, with Live's set ranking among our favorite local concerts of the year. So dismiss this cavalcade of '90s rockers at your own risk.
