In what feels like a quest to play every size venue in Tampa Bay, Joe Biden hating nü-metal-turned-country-crooning songwriter Aaron Lewis is headed back to Tampa next year.

Tickets to see Aaron Lewis play Seminole Hard Rock Tampa Event Center in Tampa, Florida on Thursday, March 3, 2022 go on sale Friday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. EST, but an artist Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. EST. Surprisingly, the presale code is “VIBE” and not “LOCKHERUP.”

Over the last few years, the 49-year-old Staind frontman has come under fire for telling a Texas audience, “I don't know how to speak Spanish. I'm American." Just last month, he went on a rant about the takedown of Confederate statues. And despite once fucking up the lyrics to the "Star-Spangled Banner," Lewis also thinks Hillary should be in prison.

Lewis is a frequent visitor to the east coast insurrectionist capital of America however, having played Dallas Bull, Tampa Theatre and Ruth Eckerd Hall within the last five years.

It’s been awhile since Lewis’ last show in Tampa Bay, but for some of us, it’s not been long enough.
