Soulshine Music Presents Drive-By Truckers At Tampa Theatre

Tickets Go On Sale Friday, Feb. 28 for the Tuesday, June 3 Show

TAMPA, Fla. (Feb. 25, 2014) – Tampa Theatre and Soulshine Music are proud to announce that Drive-By Truckers will perform live on the Theatre’s historic stage at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 3.

Tickets are $26 & $32 (plus applicable service fees) and will go on sale at noon Friday, Feb. 28 at the Tampa Theatre Box Office, located at 711 N. Franklin Street, online at and through all Ticketmaster outlets.

Founded in 1996, Drive-By Truckers (DBT) are an alternative country/Southern rock band based in Athens, Georgia, comprised of members Mike Cooley, Patterson Hood, Brad Morgan, Jay Gonzalez and Matt Patton. Because Hood and Cooley are originally from The Shoals region of Northern Alabama, the band strongly identifies with the cotton state.

With their latest album, English Oceans, releasing on March 4 of this year, Cooley says, “This lineup is so direct. It can go from this chainsaw rock ‘n roll to very delicate, pretty-sounding stuff. We wrote a lot of those kinds of songs, and this lineup got all of that well.”

Looking at the accomplishments of English Oceans from the perspective of DBT’s nearly three-decade history, both Cooley and Hood decline to hedge their bets on the quality of their latest work.
