Atlanta Concerts this week: Jennifer Lopez, TLC


Howard Jones

This-Will-Make-You-Feel-Old Alert: Jones’ debut album, “Human’s Lib,” turns 35. This tour with Men Without Hats (rulers of “The Safety Dance”), will celebrate that album’s anniversary, as well as Jones’ new electronic release, “Transform.”

With All Hail the Science. 8 p.m. July 19. $38.50-$116.50. Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Road, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Jennifer Lopez

Raise your hand if you wish you could look as good as Lopez at any age, never mind on the cusp of your 50th birthday, the ostensible reason for this “It’s My Party” tour.

8 p.m. July 22. $49.95-$344.50. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,

Gordon Lightfoot

He turned 80 in November, but the folk singer-songwriter behind such timeless nuggets as “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Sundown” and “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” is energized by the stage. He also can claim a noteworthy fan—Bob Dylan.

8 p.m. July 22. $45-$120. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Nelly, TLC and Flo Rida

For five weeks, Atlanta-bred TLC will zigzag across the country with Nelly and Flo Rida. (It’s technically a co-headlining jaunt among the threesome.) TLC recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of “FanMail,” and also, the thrill of seeing Weezer cover “No Scrubs” on its current “Teal Album.”

7 p.m. July 24. $25-$135.50. Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood, 2002 Lakewood Way, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic

Yes, this is the third time in 12 months that Clinton is saying goodbye to Atlanta, and it is probably, most likely, perhaps, truly his last tour appearance here. The “One Nation Under a Groove” tour will also feature Galactic, Fishbone, and Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf.

7 p.m. July 25. $31-$71. Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 1-855-285-8499,
