Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin will be the inaugural act to play at the new Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater. Martin, who is in the midst of his "Black & White" international tour, brings his show back to Miami for a three night run at the new Fillmore, Oct. 10-12. He is also slated to release a "Black and White" CD/DVD later this year.
The Jackie Gleason, a historic mid-size venue in Miami Beach, was taken over
by Live Nation earlier this year. The company is in the process of making a $3.5 million renovation to the 2,700 seat venue. The theater will now be known as The Fillmore Miami Beach at The Jackie Gleason Theater.
The Fillmore Miami Beach will be the sixth Fillmore-branded venue that Live Nation has in the United States, joining theaters in San Francsico, Denver, New York, Philadelphia and Detroit.
