My friend Dave used to live in and love New Orleans. But when the winds of Katrina blew up from the Gulf of Mexico Dave turned tail and ran, ending up in Atlanta, or Hotlanta as he’s come to call it. While I know he misses hanging out with the miscreants on Bourbon St, being able to buy alcohol 24 hours a day, shrimp po-boys, and boiled crawfish, he does have some good things to say about Atlanta. Dave fancies himself a musical con-a-sewer and says the concert schedule in Atlanta is simply too awesome to ignore. So let’s take a look at the month of August.
Alan Jackson tickets are available for the show on Aug. 26th
Alison Krauss at Fabulous Fox Theatre – Aug. 18th.
Black Crowes tickets are sure hard to handle on Aug 26th at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.
Here’s one for us old head bangers, Def Leppard tickets for the show at HiFi Amphitheatre on Aug 25th.
There’s also Incubus, Kenny Loggins, Kool and the Gang, Lamb of God, LeAnn Rimes, and Willie Nelson, along with a ton of other Atlanta concert tickets available in August. Don’t let the hot sweaty days of summer end without at least one blowout concert to hold you over until Jethro Tull comes on December 7th, Pearl Harbor Day. A day that will live in infamy.Eric Drouant
