Fool us once, Chief Keef, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us. Fool us three times, is it something we said? Fool us four times, we’re kind of getting used to it. Fool us a fifth time, and c’mon, man, why even bother pretending you’re ever going to come to Florida in the first place?
Glass Animals show off for better reason
Glass Animals’ July 24 concert at the Ritz Ybor has been sold out for weeks. But it won’t be happening now — and the reason why isn’t pretty. The eclectic British alt-rockers have canceled a string of upcoming tour dates, including the one in Tampa, after drummer Joe Seaward was hit by a truck while biking in Dublin, Ireland. “Miraculously and thankfully, he is alive,” the band wrote in a statement posted to Instagram Thursday. “After a couple long operations he is now on the road to recovery.” Ticketholders will be refunded; more information is available at point of purchase.
