Atlanta Concerts this week: Drake, Il Divo


Mr. “Nice for What” is taking over Atlanta for three consecutive shows as part of his “Aubrey & the Three Migos Live” tour. In case you need more clarification, Atlanta rap trio Migos is opening for the tour. Drake’s current release, the double album “Scorpion,” has spawned the hit “God’s Plan” and viral sensation “In My Feelings.”

7 p.m. Nov. 16-18. $59.50-$199.50. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com


Jim James

The My Morning Jacket frontman is hitting the road solo and acoustic, or, as James described his songs – “in their natural habitat.” The 14-date tour will find James and his longtime touring drummer David Givan reaching through James’ catalog, including MMJ songs and new material from his “Uniform Distortion” album.

With Alynda Segarra. 7:30 p.m. Nov. 19. $37.50. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com.


Il Divo

Has it really been 15 years since Simon Cowell introduced the world to the handsome, dulcet-toned dudes of Il Divo? Apparently, yes. The singing group recently released “Timeless” in celebration of their anniversary, and will slip some songs from the album into their live show. Their live show will also pay homage to their catalog and utilize the visuals of dancers and acrobats.

8 p.m. Nov. 21. $45-$350. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. www.ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000.
