Tickets priced at $145 and $295 are on sale now via Ticketmaster and the Rock Shop in Seminole Hard Rock Tampa.
Hogan, who has a home in Clearwater, is regarded by many as the greatest professional wrestler of all time. He enjoyed considerable mainstream popularity between 1984 and 1993 as a face in the World Wrestling Federation, which is now known as World Wrestling Entertainment. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005.
During and after wrestling, Hogan had an extensive acting career, which began with a role in the 1982 movie Rocky III. He has starred in several other movies including No Holds Barred, Suburban Commando, and Mr. Nanny as well as three television shows (Thunder in Paradise, Hogan Knows Best and China, IL).
Featured recently in an ESPN “30 for 30” documentary, Flair is considered the best American wrestling performer of the 1980’s. “Nature Boy” had a career that spanned 40 years.
Known for his “Woooo” scream, Flair was a major pay-per-view attraction throughout his career. He’s the only two-time WWE Hall of Fame inductee having first been inducted in 2008 for his individual career and then again in 2012 as a member of The Four Horsemen.
