With the Peach Drop, Atlanta's iconic New Year's Eve celebration, moving back to Underground Atlanta this year, it's only fitting the celebration keep with their nostalgic theme.

Atlanta-based R&B groups Jagged Edge and 112, along with alternative rock group Better Than Ezra, will perform as part of the 30th-annual celebration’s musical lineup.

The performance is part of the acts' joint tour dubbed The Xperience and marks Jagged Edge's second stint in the city this year. In October, the group behind Grammy winning hit  "Let's Get Married" and "Where the Party At" performed as part of the So So Def 25th anniversary concert in State Farm Arena.


Last year, 112 released the album Q, Mike, Slim, Daron, their first in 12 years. The group is known for R&B classics “Cupid” and  won a Grammy for their feature on rapper Diddy’s 1997 hit  “I’ll Be Missing You.”

New Orleans-based Better Than Ezra released its previous album All Together Now in 2014.

Last week, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom confirmed the annual festivities were moving back to Underground Atlanta.

“We’ve been able to work it out so that it can be there,” Bottoms told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution at an editorial board meeting.

Admission to the Peach Drop is free with doors opening at 6 p.m. and music starting at 7 p.m. Monday.

The following roads will be closed beginning 3 p.m.:

• Peachtree Street to Wall Street

• Wall Street to Central Avenue

• Central Avenue to Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard

• Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard to Peachtree Street

Entrances to the Peach Drop are located on Peachtree Street, Marietta Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

No weapons are allowed and personal items such as purses and book bags will be checked at all entrances.
