Miami's Ten Can't-Miss Concerts of the Week

10. Sinatra Sings Sinatra: A Multi-Media Centennial Celebration with Frank Sinatra Jr. Presented by Jazz Roots. Friday, March 11, 8 p.m. Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-949-6722; arshtcenter.org. Tickets cost $25 to $130 plus fees via arshtcenter.org.

From Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday celebration with special dinners and Jack Daniel's at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach to the unveiling of HistoryMiami's "Sinatra: An America Icon" exhibit, the Magic City's Sinatra centennial celebration continues with the next best thing to 'Ol Blue Eyes himself: a concert from his only son, Frank Sinatra Jr. 

9. Electric Beach's Six-Year Anniversary with AN21, Far East Movement, the Cube Guys, My Digital Enemy, David Penn, Abel Ramos, Plastik Funk, Starkillers, Armand Pena, ALX, and more. Saturday, March 12, 1 p.m. Nikki Beach Miami, 1 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach; 305-538-1111; nikkibeach.com. Tickets cost $40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Visit electricbeachfestival.com.

Kick off the Miami Music Week madness with Electric Beach's Six-Year Anniversary bash smack in the heart of SoBe, at Nikki Beach. With bangers from AN21, Far East Movement, and the Cube Guys, expect to see plenty of models, bottles, and fist-pumping. 

8. Red Axes with Legs Benedict and Jeremy Ismael. Presented by Marinate. Thursday, March 10, 10 p.m. Bardot, 3456 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-576-7750; bardotmiami.com. First 100 tickets are free with RSVP via showclix.com, or $10 to $12 plus fees via showclix.com. Ages 21 and up.

Give Israeli DJ duo Red Axes a warm Miami welcome as Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi make their Magic City debut at Bardot. Already well-known in the Tel-Aviv's nightlife scene, we have a feeling Red Axes will fit right in with the 305.

7. Adam Lambert with Alex Newell. Saturday, March 12, 8 p.m. Hard Rock Live, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood; 954-797-5531; hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com. Tickets cost $54 to $74 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

Adam Lambert has certainly come a long way since his American Idol days. Aside from having a very successful solo career — Lambert released his third studio album, The Original High, last year, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 — the vocal powerhouse recently wrapped up a world-wide tour as Queen's lead vocalist. 

6. AC/DC's Rock or Bust World Tour. Friday, March 11, 8 p.m. BB&T Center, 1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise; 954-835-8000; thebbtcenter.com. Tickets cost $70.75 to $125.25 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.

Be prepared to be shaken all night long as AC/DC brings its Rock or Bust World Tour to the BB&T Center. Sure, you'll have to drive through the Highway to Hell to get there, but as the tenth-best-selling band in the United States, these blokes will not disappoint. 

Update: AC/DC's March 11 show, in addition to nine upcoming dates, is being rescheduled. AC/DC’s lead singer, Brian Johnson, has been advised by doctors to stop touring immediately or risk total hearing loss.

5. Fur Coat with Ms. Mada, Diego Teran, and Lou Flores. Presented by Link Miami Rebels. Friday, March 11, 11 p.m. Trade, 1439 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-6666; trademia.com. Tickets cost $15 to $25 plus fees via residentadvisor.net. Ages 21 and up.

It may be March in Miami, but every season is the right season for Fur Coat. So party it up with the Venezuelan DJ duo as Sergio Muñoz and Israel Sunshine bring their "psychedelic tech-funk grooves and brooding intensity" to Trade.

4. Snoop Dogg with Ruen and Mike Deuce. Presented by Dirty Hairy. Wednesday, March 9, 11 p.m. LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via flavorus.com. Ages 21 and up.

Though we won't say "California Roll" is Snoop Dogg's greatest musical accomplishment, Stevie Wonder is featured on it. And that alone makes it an instant classic — even if its deepest verse is: "Even though you from the ghetto you belong in a home in the mountains/Not talking 'bout the view/I'm talking 'bout me and you."

Upcoming Events

3. Mobb Deep. Saturday, March 12, 9 p.m. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via holdmyticket.com. Ages 18 and up.

Sure, Mobb Deep has gone through its fair share of drama, including feuds, jail sentences, '90s-era violence, and ever-changing trends, but the Queens rap duo is still standing strong. And this week, the OGs of hip-hop will be spitting breaks at Churchill's for one of the most anticipated concerts of 2016.

2. Coheed and Cambria with Glassjaw, Silver Snakes, and the Mighty. Thursday, March 10, 8 p.m. The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-7300; fillmoremb.com. Tickets cost $29.50 to $102.25 plus fees via livenation.com.

"These songs were kind of driven straight to the point as opposed to getting really out there and conceptual," Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez recently told New Times about the band's latest album, The Color Before the Sun. Check out the band's new sound for yourself when it takes over the Fillmore Miami Beach this week.

1. Little Dreams Foundation Gala: Dreaming on the Beach Charity Concert with Phil Collins. Friday, March 11, 8 p.m. The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-7300; fillmoremb.com. Tickets cost $153.75 to $378.75 plus fees via livenation.com.

Phil Collins may have canceled his performance at the 2014 Little Dreams Foundation Gala last minute due to illness, but the singer is back at it again. Though more than a year has passed, David Frangion, the man behind the Little Dreams Foundation Gala, still maintains that "it will be a very special evening of music in Miami. I can say there will be music 'in the air' that night 'against all odds' and 'in paradise.'" We can only hope.
