SZA's 2022 release S.O.S. was a late-in-the-calendar sleeper album of the year that spent eight weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and now the R&B superstar has plans to bring it to Tampa Bay this fall.

Tickets to see SZA play Tampa's Amalie Arena on Friday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. are on sale now and start at $33.75.  The only other Florida show on the tour is on Sept. 22 in Miami.

The 33-year-old hasn't played a show in Tampa since 2017 when she brought her major label debut CTRL to about 700 fans packed into the since-shuttered Ybor City Orpheum. In our review, Creative Loafing Tampa Bay wrote that "You won’t get to see SZA in a room that small ever again."

The prediction rang true, and while SZA had to cancel her 2018 appearance at the old Gary amphitheatre due to vocal cord issues, this return to the stage should be a grand welcome back for all the new fans she's amassed along the way.
