On Monday, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced 15 more stops on their current tour. Tampa is among them.

They'll be at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on May 1.

They're touring the world on the heels of their massively popular new album "High Hopes," which debuted at No. 1 in 20 countries.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 15 at www.ticketmaster.com. You should be able to find more details at www.livenation.com soon, but as of Monday the Tampa show wasn't listed there yet.

Springsteen's show is being billed as a "pre-festival kick-off" for the three-day Big Guava Festival, which gets going the next day and features Outkast, Violent Femmes, Vampire Weekend, Foster the People, Slightly Stoopid, Cake, Tegan and Sara, Earl Sweatshirt, Grouplove, Haim and others. (The three-day pass does not include the Springsteen concert.)

Three-day passes for the festival are on sale for $165, or $499 for a "Super Guava" pass that includes a bunch of perks. Single-day tickets will go on sale at 11 a.m. Saturday for $65. Call 1-800-745-3000 or go to www.bigguavafest.com.
