Do you love NBC's The Voice? Great news: Some of the show's stars are coming to Tampa!
Um, no, not Shakira, Usher, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. Sorry, didn't mean to get your hopes up there.
The Voice has just announced plans for a 31-date tour that will hit Tampa's Straz Center for the Performing Arts on June 25, with a lineup scheduled to include Season 5 champion Tessanne Chin, above, along with Season 5's Jacquie Lee and Will Champlin. Season 1's Dia Frampton will also participate, as will this current season's first-, second- and third-place finishers. Even more fan favorites will be added in the weeks to come.
This sounds like a lower-key, "greatest hits" version of American Idol's Idols Live Tour, which generally brings each year's top finishers to arenas around the country (though not, in recent years, to Tampa).
Tickets to the show are $35-$65, and they'll go on sale to the general public April 17. For details on the show, click here.
