It isn’t often a global music superstar plays a relatively intimate club in your city.

Today, it seems, is just a lucky day for Juanes fans in Tampa Bay.

The Colombian rock superstar announced a huge North American tour on Tuesday, and while there a few historic theaters and larger venues on the list, it’s mostly focused on clubs. Among them: Jannus Live in St. Petersburg, where he’ll stop on May 3. Tickets start at $35 and go on sale this week.

While Juanes has headlined arenas, festivals and even stadiums around the world, he’s not opposed to scaling back here and there. Outside of a brief cameo at the Sunset Music Festival alongside Cedric Gervais and Hulk Hogan — yes, that really happened — his last Tampa Bay show came in 2013 at Tampa’s Straz Center.

In the 20 years since his debut solo album Fijate Bien, Juanes has won two Grammys and nearly two dozen Latin Grammys, and has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide. Last year he was named the Latin Recording Academy’s Person of the Year; this year he performed with a who’s who of the music industry as part of a Grammy tribute concert for Prince. Last summer, he opened for the Rolling Stones in Miami.
