Upcoming Summer and Fall Events at St. Augustine Amphitheatre

America’s oldest city absolutely loves live shows, and the St. Augustine Amphitheatre offers awesome options to anyone looking for an evening of incredible entertainment. As St. Augustine’s premier destination for big-ticket music, performing arts and more, “The Amp” hosts a full schedule of national touring artists year-round. Here’s just some of what’s happening at the venue in the coming months.  

Slightly Stoopid — Aug. 4

San Diego’s favorite funk/reggae/hip-hop fusion band makes their way to The Amp in early August. Devotées of the band have enjoyed their tough-to-define but easy to love sound for nearly three decades, helping them to sell out shows anywhere and everywhere they may roam. Slightly Stoopid will be joined on this outing by support acts Pepper, Common Kings, and Fortunate Youth. So dig out your glad rags and dance!

Rick Springfield and Men at Work — Aug. 5

‘80s hitmaker Rick Springfield (“Jessie’s Girl”, “Don’t Talk to Strangers”, “Affair Of the Heart”) is joined by the undeniably memorable magic of Men at Work (“Land Down Under,” “It’s a Mistake,” “Who Can it Be Now?”) on this double bill of Australia’s best pop/rock. They’ll be supported by the soulful sounds of The Babys’ John Waite (“Isn’t It Time”, “Missing You”, “Every Time I Think of You”) to create a powerhouse lineup. 

Buddy Guy and John Hiatt — Aug. 6

Prolific and influential singer/songwriter John Hiatt has had a nearly 50-year career spanning an incredibly wide variety of styles. Renowned blues guitarist Buddy Guy has been working his magic on America’s most melodic art form since the early fifties, and shows no signs of slowing down. Together, Hiatt and Guy are set to bring the house down when their powerful union hits The Amp stage — and you won’t want to miss it.  

Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band — Sept. 15

The legendary Beatles drummer is out hitting the road once again with some of the biggest names in classic rock. He’s joined on this tour by luminaries like Toto’s Steve Lukather, Warren Ham of Kansas, Hamish Stuart of Average White Band, and the irrepressible Edgar Winter. Expect a wide-ranging set consisting of hits from all of the aforementioned acts, as well as plenty of surprises spanning rock music’s history. 

Jack White — Sept. 19 

Detroit’s own Jack White found himself at the forefront of a garage-rock revival in the early aughts, carrying on the tradition begun years earlier by fellow Michigan icons Iggy Pop and MC5. His raw, muscular guitar and plaintive vocal style have been the driving force behind The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and his own solo efforts. On this tour, White is supported by folk-rocker and celebrated indie icon Chan “Cat Power” Marshall.

Earth, Wind and Fire — Sept. 27

With a career spanning five decades, nine Grammy awards, 23 albums, and more than 100 million records sold, Earth, Wind and Fire are nothing short of one of the most lauded bands in history — and for good reason. Their can’t-miss cocktail of funk, soul, R&B, rock, pop and disco has made their unmistakable sound one of the most beloved in music. Get your dancing shoes on, and head to The Amp for an evening of snare-drum-tight booty-shaking grooves.
