Lyle Lovett - Oct. 16
Four-time Grammy winner Lovett and band were the under-appreciated headlining act
at the inaugural Lauderdale Live music festival in downtown Fort Lauderdale in December.
Then, as now, Lovett was featuring songs from his 2012 album, "Release Me," but the set
also was a wonder of eclecticism that may offer a preview of what he'll play at Arsht Center.
$174-$479; 8 p.m. Thurs., Oct. 16
Knight Concert Hall, Adrienne Arsht Center for teh Performing Arts of Miami,
1300 Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Complicated and Grammy-nominated rap-reggae toastmaster Matisyahu released his album”Akeda” on Monday with the announcement of 40-date tour that stops at Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheatre on Nov. 8.
Tickets for the show are $35 and go on sale 10 a.m. June 13 at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and 800-745-3000. Radical Something is the opening act.
“Akeda” (Elm City Music) is the seventh release from Matisyahu, and comes two years after "Spark Seeker," the album he was working on when he cut his hair and beard, declaring he was no longer a “Chassidic reggae superstar.” The first singles from "Akeda" -- “Watch the Walls Melt Down” and the heartfelt ballad “Broken Car” -- find a songwriter still on that universal search.
Matisyahu will be engaging in meet-and-greets on his tour and is offering passes via an @Matisyahu Retweet Contest. More info: MatisyahuWorld.com/akedaretweet/
