Tori Amos - Aug. 24
Singer/songwriter/musician Tori Amos was one of several female performers
who combined the stark lyrical attack of alternative rock with a distinctly 70's
musical approach, creating music that fell between the orchestrated meditations of
Kate Bush and the stripped-down poetics of Joni Mitchell. Tori will release her
brand new album, "Unrepentant Geraldines," in spring 2014.
8 p.m. Sun., Aug. 24; $96-$451
Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach

Is there a South Florida arena big enough for Drake? Yes, if it has no roof. The just-announced Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour will make a stop at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on Sept. 3, with tickets ($29-$133.50) on sale 10 a.m. June 21 via LiveNation.com.
This is the only performance scheduled in South Florida for the tour (it goes to Tampa on Sept. 4), though Sept. 1-2 are open dates.
Drizzy and Weezy , of course, are not strangers. Lil Wayne’s 2009 America’s Most Wanted tour was the setting for Canadian rapper Drake’s big breakout, and the two collaborated for the recent single, “Believe Me.” Both also have been fixtures in courtside seats for Miami Heat games, though not lately.

Here's a taste, with the warning that various F and N bombs litter the performance of "Believe Me."
