Gene Simmons and the rest of Kiss will rock Atlanta one final time on April 7, 2019. 

Atlanta Concerts this week: Kiss, Maren Morris


Rosanne Cash

The Americana songstress released the deeply felt “She Remembers Everything” last year. Of the female narratives in the new songs, Cash says, “Time is shorter. I have more to say.”

8 p.m. April 6. $40-$65. Center Stage, 1374 W. Peachtree St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,



It’s been a social media firestorm since the tour kickoff fostered doubt as to whether Paul Stanley is singing live. But did you ever go to a Kiss concert for the stellar vocals? The band, on what is really, truly, most definitely its farewell tour, still brings the flash and the singalong rockers (“Detroit Rock City,” “Heaven’s on Fire”). No apologies needed.

7:30 p.m. April 7. $84.50-$1,000. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Todd Rundgren

He’s calling it the first hybrid concert/book tour to celebrate both the hits and deep tracks of his 50-year career, as well as his autobiography, “The Individualist: digressions, dreams and dissertations.” The tour launches in Atlanta, and Rundgren will also sign copies of his book from 2-4 p.m. April 11 at the Buckhead Barnes & Noble.

8 p.m. April 10-11. $45.50-$271.50. Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Road, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Maren Morris

Since her 2016 debut single, “My Church,” caught the ear of Nashville, the Texas native has nabbed a Grammy Award, scored a massive pop hit with Zedd and Grey (“The Middle”) and landed in the top five of the Billboard 200 album chart with her second album, “Girl,” released in March. The title track has also crossed over to Top 40, intimating Morris will enjoy a genre-straddling career.

With RaeLynn. 8 p.m. April 11. Sold out. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave. SE, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,

Carbon Leaf

Longtime fans of the Richmond, Va., band might find it hard to believe that 2018 marked the 25th anniversary of the purveyors of Celtic-folk-bluegrass-rock. Also last year, the Barry Privett-fronted quintet released “Gathering Vol. 1,” its first new music since 2014. The album is the first of a four-volume series under the “Gathering” title, with songs that spotlight community, grief and celebrations of life.

With Carolina Story. 7:30 p.m. April 11. $20-$28. City Winery Atlanta, 650 North Ave., Ponce City Market, Atlanta. 404-946-3791,
