Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon shows sell out quickly in Tampa Bay

Tickets to see Jimmy Fallon's standup show at the Tampa Theatre sold out in 42 minutes, and Jay Leno's first appearance in Tampa Bay in more than 20 years sold out to Ruth Eckerd Hall members before they even made it to sale for the general public, Ruth Eckerd Hall announced Wednesday. Fallon's Clean Cut Comedy Tour is coming Oct. 16 to the 1,400-seat Tampa Theatre. Leno will be at the newly remodeled Capitol Theatre, which seats 750, on Feb. 9 in Clearwater — just three days after ending his reign as host of the Tonight Show. Both shows are produced by Ruth Eckerd Hall. A few tickets are still available for The Late, Late Show host Craig Ferguson's show at the Palladium at St. Petersburg College on Nov. 18, the venue announced. Also presented by Ruth Eckerd Hall, Ferguson tickets are priced at $55-$85 at the Ruth Eckerd Hall ticket office, 1111 N McMullen-Booth Road in Clearwater, or call (727) 791-7400 or see
