Seeing music live is one of the joys in life, and we have many opportunities to see concerts in South Florida, in Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Miami, West Palm Beach and elsewhere. Unfortunately, it’s not always cheap. We’ve found a number of ways to get Broward, Miami and West Palm Beach concert ticket deals. You can find concert ticket discounts from a number of sources, including Goldstar, ScoreBig, Groupon, Living Social, Ticketmaster and the theaters themselves.
You can also find plenty of free live music in bars, at malls and in Broward parks.
Three tips for getting the best deals on Broward and South Florida concert tickets:
- See if your credit cards offer deals. Many credit card companies are working with concert promoters to offer advance ticket sales or special prices.
- Check early for tickets and then check back frequently. Sometimes the best deals are offered well in advance of the performance and other times they come along later, if ticket sales are slower than expected. Discount tickets may sell out, and then more deals may be provided.
- Check multiple sites. A deal that is sold out on one discount site may not be sold out on another. Or a slightly different package may be available at a discount. Deals change frequently , too.
Here is the Fort Lauderdale on the Cheap guide to getting the best deals and discounts on concert tickets.
Goldstar contracts with performing arts companies and venues in Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties to sell unsold tickets at a discount, often 50 percent off and sometimes more. Sometimes you get the best deal if you buy in advance, but sometimes you can get a deal the day of the show. You usually receive etickets, which you can print out or show on your mobile device. (Make sure you read the directions because different venues set different rules.) There is a small service fee, which is disclosed before you buy the ticket. There are no hidden fees.

Groupon frequently has deals for plays, concerts, festivals and other Broward and South Florida events. The best deals are usually a few months in advance of the event, and then a deal may come along later if the event is not selling well. Either way, it pays to check before you buy a full-price ticket because Groupon can offer music and concert tickets for 50 percent off or better. The Groupon price almost always includes all service fees, so the price you’ll see is the price you pay. You can sometimes earn credit by sharing the deal with friends after you purchase.

You might not expect to find deals at Ticketmaster, the giant company that handles ticket sales for many major venues and performing arts events. But the company sometimes offers deals, two-for-one tickets and “four packs” of tickets at a discounted rate. The base price of the ticket does not include service fees, which can be hefty, but those fees are disclosed before you buy the tickets.
