We’ve just noticed a flurry of new tour and show announcements making the rounds. Some of these include summer tour dates for a Heart / Def Leppard tour, new dates for Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band and a whole string of shows for jam band Phish. While Seger hasn’t announced any Florida dates and Phish seems to be sticking to the northeast, I’m still optimistic about the summer concert scene. Besides, Nancy Wilson……….I mean Heart………. is coming to Tampa. Gotta check the expiration date on that old restraining order!  🙂
