Best concerts in Miami
The old Taylor is dead and the new Taylor is... filling mega venues with harmless, shiny pop songs, just like the old Taylor. No matter your thoughts on Reputation, it’s tough to argue with the singer’s growing back catalog of undeniably catchy hits that have made converts of pop skeptics and indie rags alike.
The past few years have been tumultuous (to say the least) for musical power-couple JAY-Z and Beyoncé, but the pair has weathered the rough times and is getting ready to celebrate with—what else?—a co-headlining tour. Dubbed OTR II (a nod to their 2014 On the Run tour), the stadium show will mash up JAY’s increasingly conscientious hip-hop with Bey’s immaculately choreographed anthems. Plus, we wouldn’t be surprised if Blue Ivy makes a cameo.
Paul Simon, the legend behind “Mrs. Robinson,” the ’80s chart-topping album Graceland, and countless other hits, is putting up his guitar—forever. He’ll retire from playing live after taking the stage during his international Homeward Bound Farewell Tour. This is your last chance to see one of the biggest acts of the 19th century.
So what if Scorpion and Culture II were bloated, streaming-era mega-releases that promised more than they delivered? Drake and Migos are touring together and between them, they have enough hits to play two shows in a row. Oh wait, that’s exactly what they’re doing. You have no excuse for missing this live collab.
The 22-year-old South African singer is the very model of a modern pop star. He’s proudly gay. He started his career singing on YouTube, just like Bieber. He has, according to the New York Times, the “commercial sheen of a Disney star and the charisma of a boy prince.” Support the next generation of hitmakers when Sivan comes to town this September.
Reasons to see Kali Uchis live in South Florida: 1) She’s Colombian; 2) She is an essential part of the Tyler, the Creator-led SoCal sunshine-and-flowers alt-pop movement that’s taking the youth by storm; 3) Uchis’s truly impressive command of retro-chic aesthetics in her music videos; 4) She’ll be here very soon.
