Maluma to Perform at Miami Grand Prix Kick-Off Concert
Tickets went on sale this week to see global superstar, artist, actor and philanthropist Maluma kick off the Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix race weekend with an intimate concert at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, which is working to bring recognized superstars to celebrate the inaugural race in Miami. Maluma is the first A-list entertainer announced and scheduled to perform during race weekend. In addition to the concert experience at Hard Rock Live, Maluma is slated to make an appearance at Hard Rock Beach Club — a portion of the track with a beach, resort-style pools and two levels of luxury cabanas.
Juan Luis Londoño Arias, best known as Maluma, from Medellin, Colombia, has become a global Latin music idol. At only 28 years old, the Colombian superstar has 21 No.1 hits on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart and smash hits and music collaborations with artists such as Madonna, Shakira, The Weeknd, Timbaland, Jason Derulo and Ricky Martin, among many others. He is an ambassador for luxury brands such as Versace and is slated to co-design a special line with Balmain. In addition, Maluma leads his foundation “El Arte de Los Sueños,” with the mission to transform at-risk youth through art and music education bringing an inspiring message to young people.

Tonight: Anastasia Opens at the Arsht Center
“As Anastasia piles discovery upon discovery,” says Time Out New York’s Adam Feldman, “the happiest surprise is how consistently good the musical turns out to be.” Now, the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime bring this musical to the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts and it opens tonight. From the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past, according to the Arsht Center.
For a pre-show dinner, dine at BRAVA! The restaurant is located on the second floor of the Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House. Helmed by the team at Constellation Culinary Group, the French-inspired menu includes specialties such as Poulet Rouge with rosemary, preserved lemon, asparagus and popcorn hollandaise and Three-Day Beef Rib with maitake mushroom, toasted shallot dashi, smoked horseradish, and young cabbage.
