Tampa Bay Rays Summer Concert Series 2011: The Wiggles, iCarly, And The Full List

The Tampa Bay Rays are one of the best teams in the league at using promotions and gimmicks to draw fans to the park - as evidenced by their well-timed Sam Fuld giveaway - and their summer concert series has been a huge success in recent years. The Rays select a handful of well-known artists to perform a concert after a Rays games, essentially providing Rays fans with an incredible deal: a baseball game and concert all rolled into one.

Just this morning, the Rays announced two new summer concerts: The Wiggles and Miranda Cosgrove. Despite the handicap of being Australian, The Wiggles are one of the most famous children's groups around, and their concert should be a perfect excuse for families to make the trek over to see the Rays play (there's also a DJ Kitty Giveaway that game). Also, Miranda Cosgrove played the main character in the Nickelodeon show iCarly, and should be another big draw for families.
