As South Florida is a big stop for a number of touring acts, you can always guarantee there will be some famous name or the other taking to the stage in one of its many venues, particularly at this time of the year.

The Dave Matthews Band is traveling around – music to the ears of the group’s many fans. Then there’s Pitbull, if you really want a show to remember, and Alice Cooper, who brings a production of a different kind to his audience.

Those who remember a simpler time, when music videos rather than reality shows played on MTV and VH1, should book their tickets now for the Go-Go’s Farewell Tour, while country music lovers head to West Palm Beach for Hank Williams Jr., Brad Paisley and the Dixie Chicks, all performing at the Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre in August.

Here’s a bit of news: UB40 are touring with their original lead singer – Ali Campbell – who left the group in 2008. If you cried “Bye, Bye, Mr. Birmingham Pie” that day their reggae music died, you can recapture the magic this summer.
