Kendrick Lamar: 10 concerts to attend in July in Atlanta

Waiting to purchase concert tickets for popular shows is always risky. Every month some of the biggest names in popular music visit Atlanta for highly-anticipated concerts. Some of them sell out soon after they’re announced, but in other instances a few tickets are available even weeks before the show. 

Here are 10 can’t-miss July concerts that still have tickets for sale:

Brantley Gilbert

Georgia native Brantley Gilbert is known for writing and singing some of the most popular songs in country music over the last decade. He’ll play a show at Verizon Amphitheatre in support of his latest album “The Devil Don’t Sleep” in July.

7 p.m. July 8. $29.75-$130. Verizon Amphitheatre, 2200 Encore Parkway, Alpharetta.

Sam Hunt

As Sam Hunt’s “Body Like A Back Road” celebrates its 20th week atop Billboard’s Hot Country Song Chart, the country singer breaks the previous record set by Leroy Van Dyke's “Walk on By” in the ‘60s to become the “longest command by a solo artist on the nearly 59-year-old Hot Country Songs chart.” He’ll perform the hit song, among others at Verizon Amphitheatre this summer.
