Crown the Empire
When you’re labeled the “Backstreet Boys of the metal world” anything can happen, and that’s why we’re not surprised to see this Tampa Bay show from Crown The Empire, which is set for Wednesday, June 29, move to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg.

The group was supposed to play the new location of Orpheum, which recently moved from Ybor City to north Tampa after two decades in the historic district. But shows there have been relocated as of late while the venue puts the finishing touches on renovations at the new venue and awaits a certificate of occupancy.
So far this week, Tiny Moving Parts' sold-out  June 24 show scheduled for the new Orpheum has been canceled. A disco party set for June 25 has been rescheduled.

Over the last two weeks, Orpheum shows from Destroy Boys and Starset have been moved to The Ritz in Ybor City.

UPDATED 06/24/22 3:45 p.m. Updated when Orpheum announced that Crown the Empire would now play Jannus Live in St. Petersburg.
