All Star Legends of Hip-Hop
The lineup of Juvenile, Too Short, Scarface, Trina, 8 Ball & MJG and Trick Daddy is making its way around the country on a tour primed to appeal to (mostly) ‘90s-era hip-hop fans. Juvenile was only 20 when he hit the scene and in 1998 climbed the charts with “Back That Azz Up.” Old school rapper Scarface shared a mic with Tupac for 1997’s “Smile,” while Too Short also collaborated with both Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. during the height of their fame (and protracted beef). Too Short, however, is a veteran of the bunch, having dropped his debut in 1983.

It will be fretboard heaven when this esteemed lineup of axe-shredders hits the stage: Joe Satriani, Dweezil Zappa, Dave Mustaine, Billy Cox, Jonny Lang, Eric Johnson, Ana Popovic and Zakk Wylde. The show – which has featured a rotating cast of players over the years – began in 1995 as a headlining attraction at Seattle’s annual Bumbershoot Arts & Music Festival, but has morphed into a full-fledged collaboration and interpretation of Jimi Hendrix’s works by a diverse gathering of guitar greats.
8 p.m. March 9. $43.50-$73.50. Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 1-855-285-8499, www.foxtheatre.org.
She flew through the air with the greatest of ease when she played then-Philips Arena last April and is already bringing her aerial and musical efforts back to Atlanta. As we said when naming her 2018 show on of the top three of the year, few live performers can navigate Broadway-level set pieces while maintaining an emotional grip on an audience and keeping the music center stage. Pink is an anomaly in all the best ways.
7:30 p.m. March 12. $154.95-$224.95. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com.
KC & The Sunshine Band
There never was – nor will there ever be – anything hip about Harry Wayne Casey (aka KC). But he and his merry Sunshine Band produced some of the most indelible hits of the disco era. You might want to make fun of “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s the Way (I Like It),” “I’m You’re Boogie Man” or the criminally underrated “Boogie Shoes,” but is there any doubt that you won’t still dance to them?
7:30 p.m. March 14. $35-$95. Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com.
