Upcoming Events at Amalie Arena
A mere five miles from our doorstep here at the Westshore Grand—and therefore a mere five miles from the snazziest Tampa guestroom or suite you could ask for—lies one of the Tampa Bay area’s premier entertainment and sporting venues, the roughly 20,000-person-capacity Amalie Arena.
And as we ease into the lovely “autumn” of the Florida Suncoast, you’ve got your pick of fabulous performances games to enjoy—all within convenient striking distance of your Westshore Grand accommodations.
Let’s have a look at just a sampler platter of what’s going down at Tampa’s great indoor stadium in the coming months!
Upcoming Concerts & Performances at the Amalie Arena
As per usual, some very big names in the music business will be strutting out onto the Amalie Arena stage this fall. The rootsy British quartet Mumford & Sons will play a concert September 20—just a couple of days shy of the autumn equinox. On October 7, the actor-comedian Chris Tucker will show off his standup skills—honed over decades at this point—to the Amalie, backed up by radio host, writer, actor, and all-around funnyman D.L. Hughley.
Hard-rock and metal fans, take note: October 15 sees the legendary Scorpions scorch up the Amalie with their Crazy World Tour—supported, mind you, by the equally headbanger-friendly crew Megadeth. The spectacle of an entirely different brand arrives October 19, when pop superstar Bruno Mars brings his 24K Magic World Tour to Tampa.
Down-the-line highlights of the Amalie Arena concert calendar, meanwhile, include guitar god Santana on October 27 and the beloved violinist-showman André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra on November 1.
The Lightning hosts the Nashville Predators (September 22) and the Florida Panthers (September 24) for the preseason; upcoming regular-season matchups on the Amalie Arena rink include the Panthers on October 6, the Washington Capitals on October 9, the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 12, and the St. Louis Blues on October 14.
