Rescheduled from April, 98Rockfest is back, injecting much needed rock into some of our lives. Nirvana-influenced South African rock band Seether (pictured) joins mega-huge Jacksonville hard radio-rock favorite Shinedown for the arena show. Seattle’s not-really-grunge-band Candlebox adds a throwback element to the lineup. I mean, are you even a ‘90s kid if you pretend to not know all of the lyrics to “Far Behind”? Lighters, or, eh, phone torches, are definitely going up for that ballad.

98Rockfest: Shinedown/Seether/Candlebox/Fozzy/Dirty Honey. Saturday, Oct. 2, 5 p.m. $35-$248. Amalie Arena, Tampa. amaliearena.com
