Ticket window: Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Tori Amos, Boston, Gipsy Kings and more
It's pretty rare that an Oscar winner announces he's coming to your town, right?
Okay, fine, maybe not this week. In the past 24 hours, two Academy Award winners -- Jared Leto and Kevin Spacey -- have both announced plans to come to Tampa. Spacey, who won for The Usual Suspects and American Beauty, will lead an acting workshop during next month's International Indian Film Academy awards weekend, otherwise known as the "Bollywood Oscars." And Leto, who just won for Dallas Buyers Club, announced his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, would be touring with Linkin Park and AFI, and their tour would come to Tampa on Aug. 9.
Tampa Bay concerts and events with tickets going on sale this week include: Goblin (April 24, State Theatre), Under the Streetlamp and Gentleman's Rule (April 24, Ruth Eckerd Hall), M.
