Looks like the Megaticket might be coming together.
Country star Thomas Rhett on Thursday announced plans for a 2020 tour, and it’ll stop at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on June 19. Cole Swindell and Hardy will open the show.
While no ticket details have been announced just yet, Billboard and other outlets are reporting that the tour is part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket, a package of several country concerts at amphitheaters across America. Fans who buy one Megaticket get access to multiple shows. Megaticket lineups vary by city, so it’s not a guarantee Rhett will be part of the Tampa ticket, but it’s a good bet.
Rhett’s star has risen quickly since his 2013 debut album It Goes Like This. He’s scored major country-pop crossover hits like T-Shirt, Die a Happy Man, Marry Me and Look What God Gave Her, and even played Saturday Night Live.
Rhett is no stranger to Tampa Bay, but it’s been a long time since he has headlined his own show here. His most recent visit came when he opened for Kenny Chesney at Raymond James Stadium in 2018. Before that, he toured with Florida Georgia Line and performed at events like Ribfest.
Look for more details on Rhett’s show, and the Megaticket, in January.
