Kelly Clarkson

It’s been 13 years since Kelly Clarkson won the first season of “American Idol,” and she hasn’t showed any signs of slowing down. Over the years, she’s had numerous hits from “Miss Independent” and “Breakaway” to “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” and “My Life Would Suck WIthout You.”

In recent years, she’s gotten married and had a child, and both life events influenced her latest album, 2014’s Piece by Piece. On a recent stop on this tour, she also announced her second pregnancy. The Tampa stop will be the fourth to last show for the tour.

Pentatonix

Joining her on this Piece by Piece tour is the a capella quintet Pentatonix, which first rose to prominence when they won the third season of the reality competition show, “The Sing-Off” on NBC. The group consists of vocalists Scott Hoying, Kirstin Maldonado and Mitch Grassi, vocal bass Avi Kaplan and beatboxer Kevin “K.O.” Olusola.

They have been a driving force behind their own success, using social media to release videos that have grown their fan base by allowing them to interact with it. After three EPs, including a Christmas one, Pentatonix signed with RCA Records, and this year won a Grammy for their “Daft Punk” medley. Their self-titled full length album will be released October 16, 2015.

Tickets for the show start at only $20 for lawn, and go up to $106.50 for the best seats. They are available at livenation.com, at Ticketmaster locations, and at the box office. Also appearing on the bill is Eric Hutchinson.
