Maroon 5 and Train have a date together at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre in Tampa. Wait a minute —wasn't this concert just here? We swear we remember hearing Hey Soul Sister and Misery on the same night. Yep, Maroon 5 and Train performed together at the St. Pete Times Forum way back in December.
If you missed the Adam Levine-Pat Monahan popfest that was the 2010 Jingle Ball, you're about to get another shot at it. According to their websites, Maroon 5 and Train are gearing up for a joint tour that'll hit Tampa on Aug. 31. Matt Nathanson will open the show. There's no official word on ticket prices yet, but Maroon 5's website says they'll go on sale May 20.
Another big show for the Gary
Kings of Leon are on their way back to Tampa too.
The Southern-rock demigods are scheduled to perform at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheatre in Tampa on Aug. 2. Details are slim at this point, but Kings of Leon's website says tickets will go on sale to the general public May 13. No word on openers, but it does look like Band of Horses will be opening at least one date on this tour.
Kings of Leon's show in the fall at the amphitheater was a doozy (though the fact that the Black Keys opened up was definitely a plus).
