Jon Batiste Coming to Miami Beach Live! and Erasure Cancelation

(Miami Beach, FL) Jan 20, 2022 -

Jon Batiste, this year’s most Grammy-nominated artist, is coming to Miami Beach for one night as he takes the stage on Saturday, March 12 as part of the monthlong “Miami Beach Live!”


Batiste, the high-energy band leader on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” earned a whopping 11 Grammy nominations in seven fields, more than any other artist. “I just put my head down and work on the craft,” Batiste humbly told Colbert during a recent broadcast.


He will take the stage prior to Canadian-born chartbuster Alanis Morissette, a seven-time Grammy Award-winning artist herself, whose album, “Jagged Little Pill,” sold 30 million copies and became the highest-selling debut album worldwide.


Citing “circumstances beyond their control,” alternative dance band Erasure has canceled a number of its upcoming North American tour dates, including a scheduled appearance at “Miami Beach Live!” on March 5.


“It’s also important to tell you that Vince and Andy are both fine,” Erasure said in announcing the scheduling change.


Organizers of “Miami Beach Live!” will name a replacement act for Erasure shortly.

Erasure ticket holders, both free and paid, will receive a direct cancellation message from the Universe ticketing platform. Ticket buyers will not need to request a refund as refunds will be processed immediately and their accounts refunded. Buyers can expect between 5-8 business days to see the refund reflected on their credit card statement.


“Miami Beach Live!” will activate the Lummus Park area of South Beach and the beachfront between 10 to 13 streets each weekend in March starting on Friday, March 4 through Sunday, March 27. Every weekend will have a different theme — including dance, pop, international and symphonic Broadway. The entire month will feature daytime programming, Friday night movies, Saturday evening concerts and Tasty Sundays with prix fixe menus at some of Miami Beach’s top restaurants.


Colombian superstar Juanes, the chart-topping “Camisa Negra” Latin rocker hits the stage on March 19. His debut album, “Fijate Bien,” brought Juanes the Latin Grammy for Best New Artist in a musical career that catapulted him to global acclaim as one of the most important Latin music artists in the world. Juanes has earned 20 Latin Grammy Awards.


Broadway sensation, actress and author Bernadette Peters closes out “Miami Beach Live!” on Saturday, March 26 with an opening performance by Brian Stokes Mitchell. One of the best-known Broadway performers, Peters is also known to television and movie audiences.


Tickets for all the “Miami Beach Live!” concerts are available through Ticketmaster. Resident general admission is sold out. Resident VIP tickets cost $100. Nonresident general admission costs $10. Nonresident VIP tickets cost $125.
