Talk about huge concert announcements. Yesterday, Bruce Springsteen announced a stop at the BankAtlantic Center, and today the Beastie Boys let slip one of their nine stops on this year's tour will be at Bayfront Park Amphitheater. Even better news: this is the last stop on the tour, so you know they'll be pouring every last drop of energy into this show (unlike last year's lame and uninspired Langerado performance). Tickets aren't yet on sale, but stay tuned to Crossfade for information on when they'll be available through Live Nation.
