Summer is nearly here, and aside from buying a new car, there’s no better way to celebrate the South Florida heat than by heading to one of the area’s premier live performances. Whether you’re from Fort Pierce, Stuart, or visiting the beaches in Ft. Lauderdale, be sure to plan around one (or all) of these exciting Miami concerts.
Vans Warped Tour
July 2nd @ 11:00 am | Perfect Vodka Amphitheater (West Palm Beach, FL) | Tickets
Unlike the Odyssey vans our South Florida Honda Dealers sell, this “Vans” show is only in town for one day: July 2nd. Bring some water, earplugs, and SPF 50, because this outside festival is going to get packed and loud when acts like Futuristic, Watsky, Anti-Flag, and The Ataris mic up and plug in their amps.
Rod Stewart w/ Cyndi Lauper
July 6th @ 7:30 pm | Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Hollywood, FL) | Tickets
18 cities in 2 months—are we sure these two seminal musicians are as old as they say? Stay forever young and have some fun when Mr. Stewart and Ms. Lauper kick off their summer tour right here in Hollywood, FL, on July 6th.
July 7th @ 8:00 pm | AmericanAirlines Arena (Miami, FL) | Tickets
Paul McCartney and his three Beatles bandmates were instrumental in transforming music into what it is today. At 75 years old—happy birthday, Sir. McCartney—he’s still changing the landscape of rock as he starts his One on One tour in Miami this July.
WorldWired Tour (Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat)
July 7th @ 6:00 pm | Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, FL) | Tickets
If McCartney and the Beatles were the biggest influence in rock music, Metallica must be the princes of metal. With hits like “Nothing Else Matters,” “Enter Sandman,” and “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” this four-piece is ready to get the entire Hard Rock Stadium audience headbanging on July 7th.
United We Rock Tour (Styx, REO Speedwagon, Don Felder)
July 19th @ 7:00 pm | Perfect Vodka Amphitheater (West Palm Beach, FL) | Tickets
When Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Don Felder (of the Eagles) unite, rock is certain to happen. That’s probably why their tour is called “United We Rock.” Find your way to West Palm Beach in mid-July for a blast from the past.
Khalid: The American Teen Tour
Aug. 2nd @ 8:00 pm | The Fillmore (Miami Beach, FL) | Tickets
R&B up-and-comer Khalid has been making the rounds this summer, playing shows in just about every major city in the country and Canada. On August 2nd, he’ll bring his soulful touch to the Fillmore stage in Miami Beach. This show is hot—like, sold-out hot—so contact the Fillmore for more details on how to acquire tickets.
The Rage and Rapture Tour (Blondie & Garbage)
Aug. 8th @ 7:00 pm | Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (Hollywood, FL) | Tickets
What happens when Debbie Harry and Shirley Manson co-headline a national tour? We’re about to find out as both of their respective bands, Blondie and Garbage, roll their tour buses into Hollywood, FL, for what should be a sold-out show. So grab your tickets before the last one’s gone!
Lionel Richie w/ Mariah Carey

I Love The 90’s Tour (Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice, Coolio)
Aug. 19th @ 7:00 pm | Pompano Beach Amphitheater (Pompano Beach, FL) | Tickets
Salt N Pepa, Coolio, and Vanilla “Havin’ a Roni” Ice bring their nineties-era rap to Pompano Beach in mid-August, inviting all of South Florida to live nostalgically until the encore. This was a rescheduled concert, so tickets may still be on sale!
Kendrick Lamar w/ YG & D.R.A.M.
Sept. 2nd @ 7:30 pm | AmericanAirlines Arena (Miami, FL) | Tickets
Opening acts YG and D.R.A.M. will energize the Miami crowd on September 2nd, but we all know who the star is. Performing is in Kendrick Lamar’s DNA, so he’ll surely live up to the hype when closing out his nationwide tour on the AmericanAirlines Arena stage.
Ms. Lauryn Hill & Nas
