(Through the end of the year on Soundcheck, our contributors are looking back at the best local concerts of 2015. Today: A collection from Tampa Bay Times photographers.)

For many music fans, there was only one concert that mattered this year in Tampa Bay: Taylor Swift on Halloween night at Raymond James Stadium.

We know better. From pop to hip-hop, DJs to rock legends, Times photographers covered dozens of blockbuster concerts in 2015. We picked some of the best of the year from photographers Luis Santana, Monica Herndon, Octavio Jones, Brian Mahar and more.

Pick up today’s Tampa Bay Times for a full two-page spread of concert photos by the likes of Swift, Van Halen, Janet Jackson, Zedd, the Who, Sam Smith and many more. Click here for a slideshow. And search this blog for more photos and reviews of each of these concerts and more.
