It's been a couple of years since Luke Bryan played Tampa, but he's coming back in a big way this summer.
Bryan, the two-time CMA entertainer of the year and a judge on ABC's upcoming reboot of American Idol, just announced a run of 2018 stadium dates that includes a June 23 stop at Raymond James Stadium. Joining him will be another Nashville superhunk, Sam Hunt, along with Jon Pardi and Morgan Wallen.
Ticket details have not been announced, but will be forthcoming soon. Click here for details.
It's going to be a busy summer at RayJay, as this is the fourth major concert in the works. Kenny Chesney plays there on April 21, Taylor Swift returns Aug. 14 and Ed Sheeran makes his local stadium debut on Nov. 7. And that's not even counting the Sunset Music Festival, which returns outside RayJay on Memorial Day weekend. Talk about a hot summer.
