The Fred’s summer concert series will include plenty of nostalgia moments with acts including the Monkees and the Steve Miller Band on the docket.
- It’s the 50th anniversary of the Monkees, and Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are leading a 35-date tour that will visit the Peachtree City venue on May 21.
- On June 4, the Alan Parsons Live Project, with Parsons as the main player, will perform.
- July 15 brings the Steve Miller Band — by then Miller will be a newly minted Rock and Roll Hall of Famer — and their cadre of hits including “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jungle Love” and “Jet Airliner.”
- UB40 featuring Ali Campbell with Astro and Mickey Virtue, the founding members of the reggae/pop ensemble that commandeered the airwaves in the ‘80s and early ‘90s with “Red Red Wine” and “(I Can’t Help) Falling in Love With You,” will perform Aug. 13.
- And on Aug. 29, former “American Idol” darling Kellie Pickler brings her country hits to town.
One more show in the series will be announced soon.
