Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes
Still outraged by those Bruce Springsteen ticket prices? We are too, but a longtime buddy of the Boss’ is dropping into Tampa’s Hard Rock Event Center for the first time ever next Thursday, Sept. 16.

John “Southside Johnny” Lyon also had a major influence on Jon Bon Jovi, so there’s really no pondering as to why the 73-year-old—who plays Florida just about every year—is a pioneer of the Jersey sound.

Tickets are available for as low as $25, which is a hell of a lot better than $200 to look at Springsteen’s ass from up high for three-and-a-half hours.
