Seeing Steven Patrick Morrissey at the Fillmore Miami Beach (née Jackie Gleason Theatre; 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach) is like attending a fabulous mid-´80s holdouts version of the second coming of the Fab Four -- complete with hysterical, screaming fans thrusting themselves past beefy security guards in an attempt to touch, rub, and get closer to the man himself. Since the tragic 1987 demise of Morrisseys OG crew, the Smiths, his worldwide popularity has only expanded with each release and concert tour. But wasnt he just here? Rumor has it that this Thursdays event was scheduled in part to make up for a lackluster performance last time the gentleman was in town, but the famously elusive star was unavailable for comment. Tickets cost $48.50 $78.50; no discount for sweater vests. Visit www.ticketmaster.com.
