Five Best Music Events in South Florida This Week

Marilyn Manson and The Smashing Pumpkins

Marilyn Manson may be a '90s rock revolutionary, but Brian Hugh Warner's got nothing but respect for SoFla. Mainly because homeboy got his start in Fort Lawdy as Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids back in 1989. Now, Manson's returning to his former stomping grounds for the End Times Tour with fellow '90s rock legends, the Smashing Pumpkins at downtown Miami's Bayfront Park Amphitheatre.

The End Times Tour. Wednesday, July 22, 7 p.m. Bayfront Park Amphitheatre, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-­358-­7550; Tickets cost $100 plus fees via


Metal fans across South Florida may be excited to see Slipknot on their Summer's Last Stand Tour this week, but Welsh openers Bullet for My Valentine can't wait to dig their teeth into some good 'ol American barbecue. "That's one thing you do amazing," BFMV guitarist Michael Paget raves to New Times in a recent interview. Grub aside, "Paget is excited to hit the road not just for the opportunity to play new songs for fans," which will include tracks from the band's latest EP, Venom, "but to hang out with his old friends in Slipknot and Lamb of God." At least that's one thing we can all look forward to.

Summer's Last Stand Tour with Lamb of God, Bullet for My Valentine, and Motionless In White. Friday, July 24, 6 p.m. Coral Sky Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansbury's Way, West Palm Beach; 561-795-8883; Tickets cost $30 to $70 plus fees via

3 Doors Down

You don't mess with a six-time-platinum-selling band. Especially if that band is 3 Doors Down. During their concert in Broomfield, Colorado last week, lead singer Brad Arnold abruptly stopped the show after seeing a man push a woman out of his way near the stage where the vocalist and his crew were performing. That moment, of course, was all captured on video. "Hang on, hang on, hang on," Arnold is seen yelling on the vid, which was shared by guitarist Chris Henderson via his YouTube page. "Hey, hey homie. You don't hit a woman. You just pushed a woman out of the way to get in a fight, you dick! Get him the hell out of here. You don't hit a woman, dude." Mad respect to you, Arnold. 

With Seether. Friday, July 24, 7:30 p.m. Pompano Beach Amphitheatre, 1801 NE 6th St., Pompano Beach; 954-519-5500; Tickets cost $39.50 to $59.50 plus fees via

Idina Menzel's World Tour

Idina Menzel may have become a hit among 4-year-olds across the globe thanks to Disney's 2013 animated flick, Frozen and "Let It Go," but Menzel has been a household name in the Broadway world for years. Now, the singer's embarking on her debut world tour which will bring her to the 561 this week. 

Sunday, July 26, 8 p.m. Mizner Park Amphitheater, 590 Plaza Real, Boca Raton; 561-544-8600; Tickets cost $51.50 to $121 plus fees via
