The theater became a great theatrical and performance center as well as concert hall. In 2007, the theater was again reborn, undergoing a multi-million dollar transformation. Operated by Live Nation, the future of the music business, The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater showcases the biggest names in live entertainment. Steeped in rock 'n' roll history while maintaining cultural relevance, our theater passionately combines the rich tradition of the Fillmore Experience with the energy of Miami Beach.
