In anticipation of Super Bowl LIV and joining the celebrity migration south, breakout Grammy award-winning hip hop rapper Lizzo, feminist icon and wind-instrument master, packed Miami Beach’s classic 1950 Jackie Gleason Theater at the Fillmore, the same stage where Ed Sullivan filmed and Tony Bennett performed.

Over 2,700 enthusiastic fans Joined Lizzo on Thursday night January 30th for one of the most sought-after tickets of the season. Lizzo put on a superb show with her silver Muramatsu flute; on which she played some melodies written by centuries-old Frenchmen in the midst of pyrotechnics and flashy dance moves. Is this what a classical flautist looks like? Lizzo dominated the stage with a dazzling array of glimmering, twerking and freestyle rapping while wrapped in full-body glitter spandex and flanked by a large cast of talented dancers.
Lizzo thanked her fans with genuine humility and paid a touching tribute to Kobe Bryant. Thanks to SiriusXM Pandora, fans today learned why some call this young woman from Minneapolis the “wind machine” in a performance of awe, delight and a challenge to traditional conceptions of pop-star image. Shattering stereotypes, she’s on a mission to change how women and men view their bodies and love themselves. This cause underscores much of Lizzo’s work.
In addition to the intimate performance by Lizzo, the event sponsors as well make us feel “Good As Hell” by hooking us up. with exciting onsite experiences, complimentary bites, giveaways, and more thanks to the sponsors!
