Friday, July 6
Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band – Fox Theatre Atlanta, Atlanta, Ga.
Ringo is long removed from his days as The Beatles drummer, but his power as a solo performer remains in full force with the 13th All Starr Band. Starr will play an assortment of classic Beatles hits like “Yellow Submarine” mixed with his own more modern creations. Starr will also perform in Nashville on Saturday. Tickets for Friday’s Atlanta show start at $80.
Radio One Fest – Bayfront Park Amphitheatre, Miami, Fla.
The biggest names in rap music hit up South Beach this weekend, including T.I., Young Jeezy, Wale and more. When long-time mainstays like Fat Joe and Ice Cube are relegated to the bottom of the lineup card, you can expect a major party. Tickets for Saturday’s show start at $98.
DMX – Firestone Live, Orlando, Fla.
It will be a rap-centered Saturday for Florida residents, as DMX barks and yells for an Orlando audience. His high-energy, hard-hitting rap style took the country by storm at the turn of the century with his “Party Up (Up in Here),” and his coarse, raspy voice and unique intensity make him a perfect live performer. Expect a combo of his greatest hits along with music from his new mixtape. Tickets for Saturday’s show start at $94.
Country Throwdown with Gary Allan – The Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel, Nashville, Tenn.
Another stellar set of country performers hits the stage in Nashville, including Sunny Sweeney, Corey Smith, and Gary Allan in consecutive concerts. Allan is on his eighth studio album, a reflection on his down-home childhood and musical vibes, and Smith mixes rock and blues into his country for a folksy style. Tickets for Sunday’s show start at $59.
The Jacksons – Chastain Park Amphitheatre, Atlanta, Ga.
Just over three years since the death of Michael Jackson, his siblings began the Unity Tour 2012, pitting Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon, and Tito back on stage for the first time since 1984. Obviously the group is different without the King of Pop in his heyday, but the worldwide sensation puts on a packed show in honor of their fallen comrade. Tickets for Sunday’s show start at $21.
