Atlanta Concerts this week: Ariana Grande, ATLive with Blake Shelton, Eric Church and more


ATL Live

The brass at Mercedes-Benz Stadium hopes to make this an ongoing concert series—produced by Arthur Blank’s AMB Sports and Entertainment—and have wrangled some marquee country names for the inaugural edition. Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Sam Hunt, Sugarland, Judah and the Lion, and Cale Dodds will fill the building Nov. 15, while Eric Church, Luke Combs, Brothers Osborne and Caylee Hammack perform Nov. 17. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Johnny Mac Soldier’s Fund and Quest Community Development Organization.

5 p.m. today ($39-$317) and Sunday ($59-$601). Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 1414 Andrew Young International Blvd. Boulevard NW, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Jonas Brothers

It might feel as if the JoBros have been here a lot lately. A. Lot. And yes, they have (at a pop-up Tabernacle show in March and a sold-out State Farm Arena gig in August). But has there been a hotter return in recent memory than what Kevin, Nick and Joe have cultivated with their “Happiness Begins” album? Negative.

With Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. $54-$435. Infinite Energy Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464,

Ariana Grande

In June, the pop chanteuse brought her innovative, emotion-soaked show to a sold-out crowd at State Farm Arena. So why not return for an encore? She recently joined with peers Miley Cyrus and Lana Del Rey for “Don’t Call Me Angel,” the lead single from the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” reboot.

With Social House. 8 p.m. Tuesday. $129.95-$310. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


The Avett Brothers

The North Carolina outfit is back for another double shot at the Fox. Their 10th album, “Closer Than Together,” arrived in October, along with the insightful single, “Bang Bang.” The band is playing mostly arenas on this tour, making their Fox appearances even more appealing for their intimacy.

8 p.m. Thursday (and Nov. 22). $75-$89.50. Fox Theatre, 60 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 404-881-2100,
