On September 9, country sweetheart Miranda Lambert will bring her Keeper of the Flame tour to Tampa.

If you want to get to the gig, here’s everything you need to know.
More About Miranda Lambert
After winning female vocalist of the year at both the Country Music Association Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards for the past six years running, it’s fair to say that Miranda Lambert is at the top of her game.
When she released her major label debut “Kerosene” in 2005, Lambert quickly won the hearts of not just country music fans, but also music lovers around the world. The album went platinum and cracked the US top 20. She released four more albums and numerous singles that zoomed up the U.S Country and Billboard charts. Songs like “Gunpowder & Lead,” “White Liar,” “The House That Built Me,” and “Over You” have become resolute fan favorites.
See The Keeper of the Flame Tour
The Keeper of the Flame tour is Miranda Lambert’s most extensive to date, with her first overseas shows in London, Dublin, and Glasgow complementing 25 American performances. The tour kicked off in Austin on April 30, so Miranda is bound to be in fine form when she hits Tampa.
With Lambert switching up the set list each night, it’s uncertain exactly what her fans will hear at the Tampa show. However, she’s been playing plenty of the classics fans love singing along to as well as covers by some of her biggest influences, including Linda Ronstadt and Kris Kristofferson. Lambert hasn’t released a new album in 2016, but as she’s been writing extensively this year, concertgoers are also likely to hear some fresh material on the night.
Multi-platinum country singer-songwriter Kip Moore and up-and-coming duo Brothers Osborne will warm up the crowd before Lambert’s set. Both celebrated country acts in their own right, you’ll want to arrive at the venue on time to catch their performances.
Preparing for the Tampa Show
While there are numerous online outlets selling tickets for Miranda Lambert’s shows, Live Nation is the official promoter. They’re selling standard admission tickets from as low as $25, although you’ll spend a bit more to get close to the stage.
With tickets in hand, the next thing you need to think about is what to wear. A fun tank-top or tee shirt with a flannel and a pair of Wrangler or Miss Me jeans which are fashionable create the perfect country concert attire. Accessorize with a flashy belt buckle and a pair of leather cowboy or cowgirl boots, American made of course with a new cowboy hat will certainly complete your amazing new country fashion appeal.
