Queen Latifah, star of the mid-'90s Fox show Living Single, a.k.a. the greatest sitcom ever, is coming to Fillmore Miami Beach on November 17. Unfortunately, she's not taking Synclaire, Maxine, Regina, and Overton with her to do live Living Single theater. No, instead she'll be banking on her musical talent to entertain the crowd during "The Persona Tour." Persona is Latifah's first album in six years, and it's getting mixed to positive reviews. Tickets are available now through Live Nation.
Taylor Swift, country music's hottest thing and my guiltiest of pleasures has announced a second leg of her "Fearless" Tour will be coming to South Florida. According to Live Nation, the 19-year-old sensation will be visiting Sunrise on March 7, so it only makes sense she'll be playing BankAtlantic. Tickets aren't yet on sale, but stay tuned to Crossfade or Ticketmaster for updates. And check out Taylor Swift's adorably cheesy award-winning video after the jump.
