The Megaticket has arrived.
Live Nation has unveiled the lineup for its 2019 Country Megaticket, a bundle of tickets to five concerts at Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre that can be purchased as early as next week. Leading the way: Florida Georiga Line, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts and Chris Young, with one more act to be announced in the future.
Here's the full lineup by date, with some openers still to come:
May 24: Rascal Flatts
July 20: Dierks Bentley with Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes
Aug. 2: TBA
Aug. 30: Florida Georgia Line with Dan + Shay, Morgan Wallen, Canaan Smith
Sept. 13: Chris Young with Chris Janson
Ticket packages go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 25 at prices ranging from $199 for lawn seats to $999 for VIP seating. Click here for details.
And as for that TBA on Aug. 2? Well, there are a handful of artists listed on other Megaticket sites who aren't part of the Tampa package just yet, including Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley and Thomas Rhett -- but they and other big-name artists can be ruled out due to tour schedule conflicts on those dates.
But you know who just happens to have that weekend open on his calendar? Luke Bryan, who likely can't announce any Florida shows due to a radius clause agreement with Kissimmee's Country Thunder Festival in March. It might not be him, of course, but at the moment, it's as good a guess as any.
