Early aughts post-grunge band Hinder returns to Tampa on Tuesday

It's been almost a decade.

Like it or not, it’s been almost a decade since Hinder played the Tampa Bay area, but that changes on Tuesday, Sept. 6 when the band arrives at The Ritz in Ybor City.

When the group behind “Better Than Me” last played here—while promoting 2012’s Welcome To The Freak Show—Ybor City’s historic Ritz had just undergone some renovations, and the band was a year away from hiring its third lead singer Nolan Neal, who died in July at age 41.

One lifetime later, there’s no new album to promote, and the current run of shows for the alternative Oklahoma boys is mainly making up for lost time that could have been a 15th anniversary tour set for 2020.

Local hard rock brothers Sean and John Kamenar open.
