Just noticed this in the paper this morning, and this is the first time I've seen any listings past the first two.

April 23: El Gran Combo De Puerto Rico

June 4: The Fab Four, tribute to the Beatles

June 11: Ludacris

July 9: Cirque Dreams

July 23: Fuego & Los Hermanos Rosario

August 4: Gilberto Santa Rosa

August 13: Chino y Nacho feat. RKM y Ken-y

Nothing remotely interesting to me, just about all Hispanic acts. But then again that is the audience they need to attract to the new ballpark. So I understand it from a business perspective. They are setting things up for next year & beyond.

 

 

Not trying to rehash the same argument that played out earlier on the board, but in fairness to the Marlins, I counted three english acts (Fab Four, Cirque Dreams, and Ludacris), four spanish acts (Congo, Fuego, Gliberto and Chino), and one that sings in both English and Spanish (Pitbull)

The only thing that's remotely interesting is the Fab Four.

 

And I'd never go out of my way to attend that. It's simply the only act I would actually stay for.

 

Get me something on O.A.R.'s level again and I'll be there.

 

Same.

 

Well, except I didn't stay for OAR.

That being said, get The Airborne Toxic Event. They're still relatively up and coming, on tour, they'll be down here.

 

Of course I'm dreaming.

 

 

I really like them. They're probably too unknown to draw though I'm dreaming right there with you. =/

 

 

Didn't Diddy perform here last year? And Pitbull has performed here several times (granted it is his hometown, he loves Miami and he wrote "Marlins Time to Represent"). They're both apparently still relevant in the music industry. I don't see how Luda is deemed as sinking so low because he's performing at Sunlife. Sure, it's not the hottest venue, the biggest stage, nor will it have the most publicity but others have done it before him and they've kept their fame intact.

Fort Lauderdale and Orlando shows! In May. I can't wait.

 

They're up and coming, and in my opinion they're going to break through onto the big stage. While they might not attract a huge crowd, this should be the kind of music they're attracting. Not has-beens and old timers, but young musical talent just like the young talent on the baseball field :lol

 

But it is just a dream :/

I've never even heard of any of them except Ludicris. How the hell did they get him? He's still a big and popular isn't he? He's one of the few rappers whose music I sort of like. There's something about his music that stands out from the rest that catches my ear.

 

So to restart the argument from the other thread, why are most of the acts Hispanic? I kow you shouldn't assume that all the Hispanic acts on the list are in Spanish, but its a pretty safe bet in this case.

They've listed 8 shows.

 

4 are acts in Spanish

Pitbull's music is bilingual and I know plenty of native English speakers that like his music

3 are in English (I don't know if they speak in Cirque of Dreams but I assume it doesn't qualify as "Spanish")

 

I believe one of the other posters mentioned this above in case you didn't see it.

 

Miami's demographic and those in the new Marlins stadium area are mostly Hispanic. They're catering to their demographic. It's unfortunate if native English speakers feel alienated because there are more Spanish speaking acts but it is the smarter marketing plan since they need to create a fan base in the Little Havana area for when the stadium opens.

I agree that I think they're going to breakthrough. I've seen their Sometime Around Midnight music video on television before. I can't really remember what channel but I was stunned to even see that they were on television!

Exactly......its not like the English speakers of Broward & Palm Beach county filled the stadium every night. They had their chance now its time to move on.

Looks to me like they're marketing to the future fan base.

 

In 10 years the non-hispanic white population in Miami-Dade will be less than 10% and less than 25% in Broward.

Neither did the Spanish speaking people in any county.

 

But why are some trying to turn this into an us vs them type thing? Read up on the 1960's. This kind of thinking didn't work out so well.

And who cares?

 

If I don't like the entertainment after a game, I don't stay. Dosen't matter what language it is in or what color the people up on the stage are.

 

But there are going to be F18's doing a flyover at the game. I don't like F18's, so I'm not going to the game.
