Post Malone coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa

It'll be the ascendant rapper and singer's first local stop since his huge run of hits last year.

Of all the artists who've risen to superstar-level prominence over the last couple of years, the most surprising might just be Post Malone.

The face-tatted Texas rapper and singer seemed like he might've had one-hit-wonder potential with White Iverson. But he proved resilient enough to release a string of hit singles (Congratulations, Rockstar) that led to last year's Beerbongs and Bentleys, a monster of an LP that got nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys and put Posty on a straight shot to arenas.

Now, finally, after all that -- and a few misadventures along the way -- Post Malone is about to return to Tampa.

His just-announced new tour will hit Amalie Arena on Oct. 24, with opening acts Swae Lee and Tyla Yaweh in tow. Tickets are $49.75 and up, and they go on sale Friday. Click here for details.

The inclusion of Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee on the bill means we should get a solid live rendition of Sunflower, the duet between Post and him that's been yet another huge hit since its release. Between that, Better Now, Psycho, Wow and a ton of other smash singles, it should be a hit parade from top to bottom.
