REO Speedwagon and Chicago in Tampa, Florida

MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre
Tampa, FL 7-21-18

Rock Legends Photographers



This venue is perfect for a professional concert photographer. There is plenty of room to shoot, the lighting is excellent, the staff is helpful, professional, friendly from top to bottom, and the location easy to get to.





Michelle Wilson and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening there which was highlighted by another outstanding performance by REO Speedwagon. Lead singer/guitarist/frontman Kevin Cronin's energy was contagious as he quickly took charge and led the crowd through REO hits from over the years.

Last month, multi-Grammy award winner Keb' Mo' kicked off a short, acoustic solo tour beginning in Florida. Rock Legends Photographers was there to capture the sights and sounds of nights two and three of this intimate, stripped-down soiree. Keb' Mo' rejoins Taj Mahal for the next leg of the TajMo tour, which resumes Monday, 7/23/18 with two sold-out shows in Denver, and then returns to solo dates in late August (for full tour schedule including solo and TajMo dates, see below).

Dead and Company at Mattress Firm Amphitheater in Chula Vista, CA on 7/6/18

Dead and Company played Chula Vista, CA near San Diego on July 6th, 2018 on probably the hottest day of the year so far in SoCal with temperatures nearing the 100 degree mark. The close to the border "Shakedown Street" was muy caliente but that didn't stop the vendors or the heads from hitting the lot. Beers and waters were flying freely (but not free) from the many coolers scattered about the makeshift traveling flea market. Brightly colored tie dyes are still the deadhead uniform of choice and quite readily available for purchase throughout shakedown although I did with great surprise see a Farrah Fawcett t-shirt for sale at one of the booths. I missed the veggie burritos somewhere along the way but certainly someone was there bringing sand to the beach.
