This is your one-stop shop for all the weekend's happenings, including concerts, movies and sporting events throughout South Florida.


Some star power is coming to the BB&T Center in Sunrise this weekend.

First, Elton John is making good on his farewell tour, which was postponed after an illness, Saturday at 8 p.m. The cheap seats will cost you just shy of $200.

Less than 24 hours later, Bob Seger (and his Silver Bullet Band) will take the stage for his final tour Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from $55 in the nosebleed to $425 for floor seats.

Rock fans will have a choice between Seger and the Steve Miller Band, who will perform at the Hard Rock Event Center at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The show starts Sunday at 7 p.m. Ticket prices range from $45 to $105.

There must be demand for Candlebox in South Florida. A second show was added to the band's stop at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale. That means fans will get two chances to hear the sounds of Seattle this Friday and Saturday night, along with special guests To Whom It May. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. both nights.

Bad Bunny will be returning to Miami, sandwiched between two Heat games at the American Airlines Arena. Her last show at the AAA in 2018 was a sellout. Saturday's concert starts at 8 p.m.


Here's a look at this week's new releases:
