Twenty One Pilots
The Columbus, Ohio-based band Twenty One Pilots zooms into Florida for three shows: June 14 in Jacksonville, June 15 at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami and June 16 at Amway Center in Orlando.
Another power rock duo hails from the Buckeye State and will visit Florida this year for more than just an Orlando amusement park vacation.
The Akron-based Black Keys, consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney, are scheduled to perform two concerts in Florida in November on their "Let's Rock" tour: the BB&T Center in Sunrise on Nov. 5 and the next night in Orlando at the Amway Center.
Plenty of tickets remain for both shows and start around $30.
Friends since childhood, Auerbach and Carney dropped out of college together to form the band in 2001. The duo hit the big time in the early part of this decade, with the albums "Brothers" in 2010 and "El Camino" in 2011.
Being from Michigan, I need to show my home state some love when writing about Ohio (smiley face, wink).
Now 71, Cooper was known for wearing makeup and bringing snakes on stage. His hits resonated with a younger generation in the 1970s, especially the last-day-of-school anthem blared on car stereos, "School's Out."
Fellow horror-rocker Rob Zombie delivered Cooper's induction speech, saying: "He invented the rock show."
