The Fabulous Fox Theatre is already gathering some of the biggest names in stand-up comedy for its 2017 schedule.
As earlier announced, legendary comic Jerry Seinfeld is coming April 7 for two shows. He comes to Atlanta every two or three years and almost always does his shows at the Fox. Tickets are already on sale for $46.50 to $171.50.
Announced yesterday: Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. The two Blue Collar Comedy Tour vets are riding high again after a popular Netflix special came out a few months ago. Foxworthy, who lives in Alpharetta, regularly does shows at the Fox Theatre, his last visit in 2015. They are coming April 29 for two shows. Tickets go on sale December 9. (VIP tickets go on sale December 7.) I can't ascertain the price range yet.
Their Blue Collar buddy Ron White is coming solo to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center the same month on April 8 (tickets $55-$68.)
It's his first concert tour in nearly a decade. He will be taping Netflix comedy specials during the tour.
