Atlanta Concerts this week: Jackson Browne, Maggie Rogers, George Clinton

FRIDAY

Kristin Chenoweth

The Tony-winning singer-actress will mine her vast repertoire of Broadway classics and covers during her Atlanta performance, which is tied to the annual Overture Gala benefiting the ArtsBridge Foundation. In a recent interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the delightful, diminutive performer talked about her upcoming album, “For the Girls,” which she will draw from in concert as well. 

8 p.m. March 29. $46-$76. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets

The venerable Pink Floyd drummer said he missed the interaction with other musicians and hence, the supergroup Saucerful of Secrets was born. The outfit consisting of Mason, former Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt, The Blockheads guitarist Lee Harris, Spandau Ballet’s Gary Kemp, and composer Dom Beken, toured Europe last year with a setlist focused on Pink Floyd’s pre-“Dark Side of the Moon” material.” This is their first U.S. outing. 

7:30 p.m. March 29. $87.50-$127.50. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.livenation.com.  

 MONDAY

Jackson Browne

The folk-rocker behind classics such as “Doctor My Eyes,” “Running on Empty” and “Somebody’s Baby” will perform an acoustic show with help from longtime bandmates and singers Alethea Mills, Chavonne Stewart and Greg Leisz. 

8 p.m. April 1. $49.50-$99.50. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.

TUESDAY

Maggie Rogers

The Maryland-bred singer vaulted into the spotlight after a viral video of Pharrell Williams becoming visibly moved by her 2016 song, “Alaska,” resulted in millions of views. She earned the prime performance slot on “Saturday Night Live” and her “Heard it in a Past Life” tour – named for her January debut album - is packing venues. 

 8 p.m. April 2. Sold out. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.livenation.com

THURSDAY

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic

We thought that Clinton’s September performance at One Musicfest would be his final Atlanta appearance, but this time, it really is goodbye for the legendary funkmaster. At 77, he is indeed ready to retire from touring and will do it in his usual inimitable style with the Parliament-Funkadelic collective. 

8 p.m. April 4. $42-$72. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, ticketmaster.com.

The Millennium Tour with B2K

It isn’t only the Backstreet Boys making an arena comeback this year. B2K (Omarion, Boog, Fizz and Raz-B) incited female pandemonium in the early 2000s with hits “Bump, Bump, Bump” and “Gots Ta Be,” and now they’re back with Mario, Pretty Ricky, Lloyd, Bobby V, Ying Yang Twins and Chingy. 

8 p.m. April 4-5. $62.50-$286.50. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com

Papa Jack Couch

The Americana singer will be joined by his band, The Standard Electric Irregulars,” for an intimate show in support of his new album. Named for the Georgia county where he lives, “Meriwether” blends Couch’s Southern wisdom with music influenced by Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash. A video for “Hazel Eyes” is now available at immersiveatlanta.com. 

With Mary Elaine Jenkins. 7 p.m. April 4. $10-$14. Eddie’s Attic, 515-B N. McDonough St., Decatur. 1-877-987-6487, www.eddiesattic.com
