Dierks Bentley pulls into Atlanta this weekend.

Atlanta Concerts this week: Dierks Bentley, Luis Miguel


Dierks Bentley

Named for his recent No. 1 hit, “Burning Man,” this tour will keep Bentley and pals on the road through September. The Arizona native released his acclaimed ninth studio album, “The Mountain,” last summer, which provided him with a couple of more hits, “Woman, Amen” and “Living.”

7 p.m. June 14. $25-$110. With Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes. Ameris Bank Amphitheatre, 2200 Encore Parkway, Alpharetta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.


Bone Thugs N Harmony

The hip-hop quintet from Cleveland will always be tied to their Grammy-winning 1997 hit tribute to Eazy-E, “Tha Crossroads.” But the output has remained steady, with Krayzie Bone and Bizzy Bone releasing “New Waves” in 2017.

9 p.m. June 15. $37-$100. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE, Atlanta. 1-877-987-6487, ticketfly.com.

Kool & The Gang

Fans know the decades of hits – “Jungle Boogie,” “Ladies Night,” “Too Hot,” “Joanna” and the wedding song that will not die, “Celebration” – and the seminal R&B band will happily play them in, uh, celebration of their 50th anniversary. A book, documentary and box set of Kool hits are also on the way this year.

7:30 p.m. June 15. $35-$50. Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, 201 McIntosh Trail, Peachtree City. 1-877-725-8849, ticketalternative.com.


The National

The Ohio fivesome recently released “I Am Easy to Find,” which was accompanied by a 24-minute short film of the same name (directed by Mike Mills of “20th Century Women” fame, not the R.E.M. bassist). This complementary tour will find the band ping-ponging between the U.S. and Europe through most of the fall.

With Courtney Barnett. 8 p.m. June 16. Sold out. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave. SE, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, livenation.com.


Luis Miguel

In 2018, Miguel received the Latin American Music Award for best tour of 2018. That same, exhaustive “México Por Siempre Tour” will visit Duluth before it finally winds down in July.

8:30 p.m. June 19. $39.95-$500. Infinite Energy Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464, infiniteenergycenter.com.
