Andrea Bocelli coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa
Got Valentine's Day plans yet? Well, you do now.
World-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli will perform on Feb. 14 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, according to his website. Ticketmaster says tickets will go on sale to the general public on Oct. 9. No prices have been announced, but Bocelli's shows tend to be fairly pricey -- the last time he came to town, in 2016, they started at $75. Click here for details.
Bocelli is in demand all over the world, but he lives part of the year in Miami, which means Floridians get to see a little more of the man than most. And most of his shows come at a special time of the year, either just before Christmas or right around Valentine's Day. This, however, is the first time he's played Amalie ON Valentine's Day, which means your date-night plans are a no-brainer.
If, however, the ticket price scares you off, there's always Rufus Wainwright at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, also on Valentine's Day.
