It's summertime and that means lots of concerts in Tampa Bay in 2018. This really IS quite the summer showcase coming with these summer concerts in Tampa Bay!
Here's a list of all the major concerts in Tampa Bay this summer, and there's plenty of diversity for every kind of music fan! With so many venues in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and more, you'll find plenty of places to see a show from both local and national acts.
Concerts in May in Tampa Bay

Justin Timberlake & The Shadowboxers, Amalie Arena, May 15th
Kendrick Lamar, The Championship Tour, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, May 22nd
Sunset Music Festival, Raymond James Stadium, May 26th-27th
Probably not a lot of crossover between Snoop & Skynyrd, but between those two shows and Cinco de Mayo there will be plenty of traffic in Tampa that day. The Amphitheatre is the place to be this summer, especially when the weather holds up: And Justin “JT” Timberlake is bringing sexy back to Tampa at Amalie Arena right in what is hopefully the middle of a Tampa Bay Lightning playoff run!

Thirty Seconds To Mars, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, June 30th
With Styx, Joan Jett, and Hall and Oates, there's plenty of opportunity to see the best of the past hit the stage in June. And you want musical diversity? How's Poison and Donnie and Marie playing within blocks of each other at the same time!! Guaranteed to be “Nothin’ But A Good Time!” (Sorry, I had to!) Who's up for a doubleheader? And I've really enjoyed Thirty Seconds to Mars... whether you like him as an actor or not, Jared Leto is mesmerizing to watch as a frontman.

REO Speedwagon, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, July 21st
Dave Matthews Band, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre, July 25th

If you're a member of Generation X, start saving your pennies now: you'll be closing out July with Mellon Colline and The Infinite Sadness if you miss these shows. DMB and the Pumpkins on the same night will force your friends from college to choose between flannel and acoustic, and the Crows and LIVE should rock out pretty hard to finish July.
