Josh Groban announces November concert in Tampa

   Pop star and former wunderkind Josh Groban is coming to Tampa.
   Tickets go on sale May 10 for the Nov. 9 concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. He has a small band traveling with him, and he's hiring an orchestra and chorus in each city on his American tour, which kicks off Oct. 2.

   The concert will be in the round, with the stage in the center of the arena and seats all around. That makes for closer seating, and it means the worst seats won't be as distant as in a traditional set-up.
   Groban had a semi-operatic sound early in his career, but lately he's become a chart-topping pop-rocker. His latest album includes songs by Stevie Wonder, Jimmy Webb and Dave Matthews, and it was produced by Rob Cavallo of Green Day fame..
    The Tampa Bay Times Forum is at 401 Channelside Drive in  Tampa. Call 813-301-6500 or visit www.tampabaytimesforum.com.
