Viva Miami! Vibrant, glamorous and unforgettable, concerts in Miami are just like the city itself. Home to more than six million people from all walks of life, the Miami area is a natural draw for stars in the realms of pop, Latin, hip-hop, R&B and more, all of whom can play on the giant stages of stadiums and arenas, as well as theaters both indoor and outdoor, in the city.
