Tampa country fans, prepare to open your wallets.
Live Nation has unveiled the 2018 edition of its Country Megaticket, a package deal for seats to five shows at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa. Among the names on the list: Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town and more.
Here's the schedule of shows:
May 11: Alan Jackson (the initial lineup listed no openers for the Tampa show, but he'll be spending time this summer with Randy Houser, Lee Ann Womack, Lauren Alaina and Runaway June, so it'll probably be at least one of them)
July 20: Rascal Flatts, Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce
Aug. 3: Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town
Sept. 15: Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne and LANCO
Sept. 28: Lady Antebellum, "special guest" and Russell Dickerson (Lady A has already announced they're doing a full joint tour with Darius Rucker this summer, so it's all but a lock that the "special guest" is him)
Megaticket packages start at $159 for lawn seats and go up to $799 for premium reserved seats. They'll go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 16. Individual tickets to each concert will go on sale at a later date.
