So you want to go party on New Year's Eve in Miami. Here's a few suggestions for the turn of the clock in the Magic City from top money to FREE.
The billboard has been on the 112 for over a month, for the world's current biggest pop star Justin Bieber at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. We hear getting paid $1M for the night's appearance will set you back $500 for general admission. Also inside the Fontainebleau inside LIV nightclub, Shrillex will be spinning.
A Miami Beach winter resident, Billy Joel brings his annual New Year's concert to the BB&T center, which should be sold out, although one of our ticket broker friend's has informed us that many individual tickets are still avail. Can't miss the piano man, with his suitcase of hits. Truly a great concert.
Down at Mokai you have Latin Grammy winning duo, Gente de Zona, performing and salsa dancing all night long. If you want more salsa, but off Miami Beach, check our Miami's Willy Chirino, performing his hits "Ya Viene Llegando", now a different reality that Castro is gone, with a concert at Miccosukee Resort & Gaming. Back on the beach, Rockwell will have Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz ringing in 2017.
Downtown Miami will be jumping with entertainment with Mr 305 Pitbull's New Year's Revolution, LIVE on Fox, waiting for the Big Orange moving up the side of Intercontinental Hotel complete with massive firework display at midnight. The concert is free to the public with special guest Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg. VIP packages are available with complete catering by our celebrity food chef Michelle Bernstein.
At the Adrienne Arsht Center, you can catch an early Broadway Across America show, American in Paris, inside the Ziff Opera House. Across at the Knight Concert Hall, The Roots perform with an after party with Questlove spinning. Prices start at $50.
If you just want to watch fireworks, Bayside will have a great show as well as in Miami Beach on 8th and Ocean Drive. If in Coral Gables, the Biltmore Hotel, has a pretty good fireworks blowout.
