Bret Michaels, Gregg Allman coming to Pinellas

How do you like your classic rock? Glammy or jammy?

Either way, Ruth Eckerd Hall has you covered. The venue announced a pair of new shows on Monday, one featuring an icon of hair metal and the '80s, the other an icon of Southern rock and the '70s.

First up: Poison singer Bret Michaels, who will perform at the Palladium in St. Petersburg on Nov. 15 as part of Ruth Eckerd Hall's "On the Road" series. He'll be joined by Pitbull Toddler, the rock band featuring local DJ Cowhead. Tickets are $59-$89, and they'll go on sale Saturday at noon.

And returning to Clearwater on Jan. 7 is Allman Brothers Band singer Gregg Allman, who sold out Ruth Eckerd Hall in January 2012. Tickets to that show will be $41-$71, and they'll go on sale at noon Saturday.

  3. Please, let 'Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales' be the last


    Zombie sharks are jumped by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, our fifth and hopefully final ride through Disney's theme park franchise. You can cut in line ahead of me, if you like.

  4. New podcast: Martha Quinn talks Journey reunion, '80s revival and more


    It's been FOREVER since we had former MTV veejay and all-around '80s queen Martha Quinn on the Stuck in the '80s podcast! Eight years at least! So we're super jazzed to say Martha rejoins us this week to talk about everything '80s.

  5. These days, don't hit the theme park without an app and a phone charger


    Emile Crawford stocks two back-up phone battery chargers these days when she takes her kids to Disney World. But she dare not venture into a theme park without a smart phone app, an accessory becoming as necessary as sunscreen in Florida theme parks.

It also lets you pay for food so you don't have to carry a wallet and opens lockers so you don't have to  carry a key. (Universal via AP)
