Grace VanderWaal replaces Nathaniel Rateliff as opener for Florence + The Machine in Alpharetta

Fans attending Thursday’s Florence + The Machine concert at Ameris Bank Amphitheatre have a change in opening act.

Grace VanderWaal replaces Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats while Rateliff continues treatment for a hearing issue. 

The 15-year-old singer-songwriter who won “America’s Got Talent” in 2016 will also assume opening duties June 5 in Raleigh, N.C., June 8 in Orlando and June 9 in Miami. The Alpharetta show starts at 7:30 p.m.

VanderWaal has released an EP (“Perfectly Imperfect”) and full-length album (“Just the Beginning”) and is planning to unveil new music this year. Last summer, she opened for Imagine Dragons on their North American tour. 

Tickets for the show are still available for $39.50-$125.50.
