Stoner metal heavyweights Sleep are heading out on the road this summer for a rare North American run with fellow crushers Big Business, and the penultimate show of the tour is in Central Florida!

Sleep made their name with monolithic, sludgy classics like Dopesmoker and Sleep's Holy Mountain, but the heavy trio forever captured our hearts when they played a sold-out benefit show at the Beacham for victims and their families of the Pulse nightclub massacre in 2016. Not as a part of any tour, just because.

Sleep and Big Business play the Ritz Ybor on Monday, June 17 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30-$70.
