Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley top 2017 Country Megaticket lineup in Tampa

Ladies and gentlemen, start your tailgates.

Live Nation has unveiled the 2017 Country Megaticket at Tampa’s MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, a half-dozen concerts by some of the biggest names in country music alongside a slew of rising Nashville stars.

Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert and Brad Paisley lead this year’s Megaticket lineup, and they’ll be joined by artists like Kelsea Ballerini, Cole Swindell, Dustin Lynch and Nelly (!).

With the Megaticket, fans can purchase one seat for all shows at four price points: $749 (lower level seating, premium parking, VIP access), $519 (lower pavilion seating), $329 (reserved seating) and $149 (lawn seating). There’s a limit of eight tickets per order. Individual tickets to each of these shows will go on sale later this year.

Here’s the full lineup:

♦ June 2: Brantley Gilbert with Tyler Farr and Luke Combs

♦ June 16: Dierks Bentley with Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi

♦ July 28: Lady Antebellum with Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young

♦ Aug. 18: TBA

♦ Sept. 16: Brad Paisley with Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant and Lindsay Ell

♦ Oct. 13: Florida Georgia Line with Nelly and Chris Lane

A couple of things. Jason Aldean has already announced plans for a Tampa tour stop this summer alongside Chris Young, Kane Brown and Dee Jay Silver. So there’s a very good chance that Aug. 18 “TBA” slot is his.

It’s also worth noting that this year’s Megaticket lineup does not include two big country shows that have already been announced: Sam Hunt with Maren Morris and Chris Janson on July 14; and Zac Brown Band on Sept. 24. Tickets for both of those shows are already on sale.

Tickets to the 2017 Megaticket go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 17. Click here for details on all the shows.
