The history of the Fillmore Miami Beach goes back to the 1950s, when legends such as Frank Sinatra performed at the Miami Beach Municipal Auditorium. In the 1960s, the auditorium was home to shows like The Dick Clark Show and the Miss USA Pageant. In the 70s, the newly named Miami Beach Theater of the Performing Arts was home to Broadway shows such as West Side Story.
By the 1990s, the theater was a versatile performing center, hosting theatrical performances and large-scale concerts. Superstars like Marc Anthony, Tony Bennett, and Lenny Kravitz were routinely gracing the stage.
In 2007, the theater had its most recent transformation, being reborn as "The Fillmore Miami Beach." The Fillmore hosts some of the largest names in music such as Madonna, Janet Jackson, Ricky Martin, and Lana Del Rey. They have also hosted South Florida natives like Marilyn Manson, Fifth Harmony, and Dashboard Confessional. In addition, the Filmore has special events such as Studio 54 flashback concerts, Kidz Bop events, and performances of The Nutcracker by the Moscow Ballet.
The venue holds over 3,000 people and has become one of the busiest live music venues in the southern United States, putting on over 200 shows per year.
If you're planning on attending in a big group, consider contacting the venue ahead of time and getting group-rate tickets.
