Bob Dylan, above, is coming to Tampa with My Morning Jacket and Wilco on June 27.

They're calling it the "Americanarama Festival of Music," and, well, it doesn't get much more Americana than Bob Dylan. Throw in My Morning Jacket and Wilco, and that's more than enough to merit a "-rama."

The three rock/folk/country/soul/blues/you-name-it heavyweights are teaming for a giant summer tour, and according to a variety of reports (as well as Wilco's own website), the tour will hit Tampa's Live Nation Amphitheatre on June 27.

Tickets will cost $25 to $89 and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday. Future shows on this tour will feature a fourth act, either Richard Thompson or Ryan Bingham, but not this one. So we wouldn't be surprised to see another opener added.

Dylan is Dylan, and Wilco is one of the most acclaimed American bands of the past quarter-century, but the real draw for Tampa fans might be My Morning Jacket. The Kentucky rockers famously played New World Brewery before they got huge, but they haven't sniffed Tampa in years. A lot of Jim James fans will be hungry for this performance.

And we're sure we don't need to remind you of this, but the very next night, June 28, the Amphitheatre will host Pitbull and Ke$ha. We expect a lot of crossover between those two shows.

  2. Dia de los Muertos celebration in Dunedin canceled this year by hurricane

    Events

    Chalk up one more closure to Hurricane Irma: The huge Dia de los Muertos Fiesta originally planned for Saturday in Dunedin has been scrapped for what would have been its 25th year.

    At last year’s Dia de los Muertos, Casa Tina owner Tina Marie Avila (crouching) shows her “Ofrenda,” or Day of the Dead alter. What would have been the 25th annual Dia de los Muertos Fiesta on Saturday had to be canceled this year because of Hurricane Irma. The folk festival will be back next year.

    Movies

    Mr. Alfredson, you could have saved it. We gave you all the tools — a star-studded cast, a blockbuster best-selling Scandinavian murder novel by Jo Nesbo, and three time Oscar winning editor Thelma Schoonmaker. So why is The Snowman such a jumbled nonsensical mess?
