Music Midtown

Sept. 18-19. $136 (early bird two-day general admission); $156 (regular two-day general admission); $600 (VIP); $1,200 (Super VIP). On sale 10 a.m. June 27 through all Ticketmaster outlets,, or by calling 1-800-745-3000. Piedmont Park, 1342 Worchester Drive N.E., Atlanta.

Elton John has played every size venue in Atlanta, from the Civic Center to the Roxy to the Georgia Dome.

But his headlining gig during this fall’s Music Midtown marks the first time the occasional Atlanta resident will perform in Piedmont Park.

“There’s a lot of panache there,” said Peter Conlon, president of Live Nation Atlanta, in his Buckhead office last week.

John, who most recently played Atlanta in November 2013, will zip through the city on his way from London to Brazil, where he’s slated to play the Rock in Rio festival.

John is among a diverse quartet of headliners for the fifth year of Music Midtown, which takes place Sept. 18-19 in Piedmont Park, its home since returning in 2011.

Smoothie Canadian rapper Drake — who made a surprise appearance at last weekend’s Hot 107.9 birthday concert at Philips Arena — will also commandeer a headlining slot, as will veteran rockers Van Halen and British crooner Sam Smith.

The rest of the lineup is a robust parade of mainstream heritage acts, well-regarded current hitmakers and a smattering of upstarts: Lenny Kravitz, Hozier, Billy Idol, Panic at the Disco, Run the Jewels, Jenny Lewis, Tove Lo, August Alsina, Icona Pop, the Airborne Toxic Event, Kodaline, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, Elle King, New Politics, X Ambassadors, Jamie N Commons, Colony House, Rozzi Crane, Alessia Cara and Elliot Moss.

A handful of additional acts will be announced closer to the event.

“That’s the purpose of a festival — we draw you in,” Conlon said. “Whatever demographic you are, there might be two or three people you think are worth the value, but then you’re excited about being exposed to these other acts. Someone could be a huge Elton fan, but has always wanted to see Hozier or is curious about Sam Smith.”

Like last year, only two-day admission tickets will be sold for Music Midtown.

Early bird general admission tickets are $136. The price then increases to $156. VIP tickets are $600 and Super VIP costs $1,200.

“Based on the level of talent for two days, I think it’s the most affordable festival in the country,” Conlon said.

All tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday through Ticketmaster outlets,, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

The major upgrade this year is the addition of a fourth stage, which Conlon said will be located at the Active Oval, almost lateral to the stage at Oak Hill.

About 75,000 people attended last year’s Music Midtown each day, which featured headliners John Mayer and Jack White and Zac Brown Band and Eminem and often resulted in a congested walkway between the largest stage in the Meadow and Oak Hill.

“We got high marks on the surveys we did after the fact (last year) on the experience, but people said they would like it to flow better, so we’re trying to spread things out,” Conlon said.

The three stages that have been part of Music Midtown since 2013 will remain in the same spots, but the Oak Hill stage will accommodate smaller acts while the new stage at the Active Oval, as well as in the Meadow, will host headliners.

Conlon said since the extra stage equates to more performers, his talent budget increased from $6 million last year to $8 million this year.

The investment seems to have a far-reaching economic effect on the city.

According to a study commissioned by Live Nation from the Research Center in Nashville, Tenn., the total impact on the Atlanta-area economy from the 2014 installment of Music Midtown was more than $49 million.

The study noted that Music Midtown donated $100,000 to the Piedmont Park Conservancy to go toward the maintenance of the park and also provided a $400,000 rental donation to the city of Atlanta, which has historically funded the Centers of Hope.

The overwhelming majority of tickets — 63.25 percent — were sold in Georgia, with 2.87 percent coming from the Northeast, 2.80 percent from the Midwest, 1.73 percent from the West and 29.25 percent from the rest of the South.

“It’s growing nationally,” Conlon said of the event. “We’re an urban festival and there aren’t that many of them. I like having music in an urban environment, and the artists love being on stage and seeing the skyline.”

The Rolling Stones

Ladies and gentlemen...The Rolling Stones are back! The band will visit Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta on June 9.

Tickets go on sale Monday, April 13 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be sold through Georgia Tech partner Ticket Alternative at and all their ticket outlets. Customers can also charge by phone at 877-725-8849.  For more information please visit  Tickets will not be available through the Georgia Tech Ticket Office.

It will be The Rolling Stones’ first trip to Atlanta since 2002 when they played at Turner Field and their second trip to Bobby Dodd Stadium. The Stones’ 1989 concert was the first held in the newly renamed Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field. It will be the 10th concert held at Bobby Dodd Stadium and the first since Pink Floyd played two dates in 1994.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as “Gimme Shelter,” “Paint It Black,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Tumbling Dice” and “It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll,” as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalog.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s “A Bigger Bang Tour.”

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans.  Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

The tour will also coincide with the Rolling Stones re-release of Sticky Fingers on May 26 by Universal Music. Sticky Fingers, one of the most revered albums from the Rolling Stones, is set to enthrall a new generation of fans in 2015. The 1971 classic features timeless tracks such as ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Wild Horses,’ ‘Bitch’ and ‘Dead Flowers’.  Sticky Fingers 2015, with its iconic zip cover, will be unveiled in a variety of formats. The deluxe editions include a generous selection of previously unreleased Stones studio outtakes from the Sticky Fingers sessions and stunning live performances from that time. These sought after tracks have never been available until this release.

Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Olympic Studios in London, and produced by regular confidant Jimmy Miller, Sticky Fingers was released just before the Stones became tax exiles in the south of France, leaving Britain after a sensational farewell tour. It also featured some of the most ground breaking design in rock history, with its famous working zip on the front cover and artwork by Andy Warhol.

River Revival

The Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s popular River Revival concert returns to Terminal West on Thursday May 14.

River Rockstar awardees include Jack Johnson, Tab Benoit, and Encyclomedia.
