Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour is finally arriving in South Florida. The pop superstar will perform Tuesday at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, and Wednesday at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
If you don't have a ticket, don't fret: At presstime, Ticketmaster.com still had some seats available for $60 to $270.75, and the venues will be outfitted with additional stages — called "Bey stages," naturally — so everyone can comfortably watch Mrs. Carter shimmy to "Single Ladies."
Beyonce's last name is Knowles-Carter. Was she even single when she released that song? Does her sister Solange, who postponed her concert scheduled for this past Friday at the Arsht Center, mind that their tours are going on simultaneously?
Air Supply's show at the Fillmore Miami Beach on Saturday doesn't raise many questions — unless you're wondering what the Australian soft-rock duo's been up to since the release of its 2010 album "Mumbo Jumbo." After nearly 40 years, the "All Out of Love" singers still tour the world year-round. (LiveNation.com $61.50-$141.50)
Over on the mainland Saturday night, Colombian cumbia singer and Latin-rock star Carlos Vives will lively up the AAA. The singer's small-town, block-party vibe doesn't get in the way of his romantic numbers. (Ticketmaster.com $35-$165)
And at the Funky Biscuit Saturday, local jam band the Short Straw Pickers will throw an album-release party featuring fellow local act Uproot Hootenanny. There'll be a $10 cover at the door.
