Still missing the Vans Warped Tour after last year's final run? Here's a show that should help the dog days of summer feel a little cooler.
Pop-punk veterans New Found Glory will headline a free concert next month for 97X, part of the alt-rock station's occasional "Shindig" series of shows. The concert is scheduled for July 15 at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg. The Early November will open the show.
As always, you do need a ticket to get in, and there won't be space for everyone -- it's first come, first served, so get in line and sweat out the wait. Tickets will be handed out starting June 20 at ticket drops around Tampa Bay. Click here for a list of locations.
It'll be the Coral Springs group's first Tampa Bay show since last year's Warped Tour, where they rocked the main stage at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre with songs like My Friends Over You and All Downhill From Here. Is it possible for fans to sweat more at this show than they did at that one? It'll be a balmy night in the 'Burg, for sure, so we'll see.
