Another year has come and gone with 2017 on its way out and 2018 looming ever closer. We still have some time left to take in some live music before the year officially comes to a close, and New Year's Eve is the perfect time to do it. After all, is there a better way to say goodbye to one year and welcome the next? And the Miami area has plenty of concerts happening for New Year's, from chart toppers to beloved tributes. So put on your finest, pop some champagne, and get your tickets to have a fun, memorable holiday.
