Foo Fighters coming to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa

It's times like these we learn to love Mondays again.

Foo Fighters have announced additional dates to their 2018 North American tour, and one of them is in Tampa. The Dave Grohl-led band will perform at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on April 25, their first concert in Tampa since 2005. It will, in fact, be only their second Florida concert in the past decade.

The tour comes in support of the group's new album Concrete and Gold, which debuted at No. 1. But any Foo Fighters show has the potential to be a dynamic, career-spanning night, with Grohl, one of hard rock's best frontmen, at the helm. So expect a heavy dose of hits like Times Like These, Everlong, Learn to Fly, I'll Stick Around, Best of You and Monkey Wrench.

Tickets to the Tampa show are $45 and up, and they go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 3, with pre-sales starting Oct. 30. Click here for details.
