Atlanta Braves 2017 summer concert series includes MC Hammer, Jake Owen


The Atlanta Braves announced a series of postgame concerts for the 2017 season and, well, you can’t touch this.

Country singer Jake Owen (June 10), harem pants aficionado MC Hammer (Aug. 19) and pop-soul band Fitz and the Tantrums (Sept. 23) will perform free shows following the games at SunTrust Park.

The June 10 game is at 4:10 p.m. against the New York Mets; Aug. 19 is 7:10 p.m. against the Cincinnati Reds (and is part of the annual Hank Aaron Heritage Weekend); and Sept. 23 finds the Braves versus the Philadelphia Phillies at 7:30 p.m. Concerts begin at the conclusion of each game.

Single game tickets will go on sale March 10 at and a game ticket is required for the shows.

Owen recently released his fifth album, “American Love,” which spawned the hit, “American Country Love Song."

Fans of ‘90s music remember Hammer from his cultural phenomenon “U Can’t Touch This” as well as "Pray" and “Too Legit to Quit.”

And California’s Fitz and the Tantrums have been a regular presence on radio the past few years with “Out of My League,” “The Walker” and last year’s earworm, “HandClap.”
