Atlanta Concerts this week: Eagles, Andrea Bocelli


One of classic rock’s most enduring bands, the Eagles, kick off a 2020 tour with a trio of concerts in Atlanta. The band – Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, as well as Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – will perform its landmark “Hotel California” album in full with an accompanying 46-piece orchestra and 22-voice choir, followed by a set of greatest hits. The Eagles last brought their trove of hits – with Gill and Frey, son of Glenn, in tow – to Atlanta for a pair of shows in October 2017

8 p.m. Feb. 7-8 and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11. Friday, $99-$750; Saturday, $99-$750; Tuesday, $149-$839. State Farm Arena, 1 Philips Drive, Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,


Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Keith Sweat

The R&B stars have catalogs stacked with bedroom seducers, so it makes sense that for the 14th year, the pair will celebrate impending Valentine’s Day with a “Lovers and Friends” show. MC Lightfoot will host the evening, which is all-but-certain to include “Every Time I Close My Eyes” from Babyface and “I’ll Give All My Love to You” from Sweat.

8 p.m. Feb. 8. $64-$154. Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 1-855-285-8499, 


Amanda Shires

Sometimes she’s in The Highwomen with Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris and Natalie Hemby. Other times she’s with husband Jason Isbell and his 400 Unit. And then there is her solo career, which will keep her on the road through April on this “Atmosphereless” tour. 

With L.A. Edwards. 8 p.m. Feb. 9. $20-$120. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE, Atlanta. 1-877-987-6487, 


Andrea Bocelli

The world-renowned tenor will spread the love with a pre-Valentine’s Day performance. Bocelli is expected to perform songs from his hit album, “Si,” other crossover hits and love songs to tie in with the day dedicated to romance. 

7:30 p.m. Feb. 13. $84-$364. Infinite Energy Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth.
