Eric Church and George Strait among those to play ‘ATLive’ weekend in Atlanta

ATLive, a weekend concert series in Atlanta, is planned for November 5-6 with an all-star lineup. The festival has one night dedicated to country music and one for rock ‘n’ roll, with country performers George Strait, Eric Church and Caitlyn Smith on November 5 and rockers Metallica, Greta Van Fleet and Cage the Elephant on November 6.

Performers will take the stage in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the center of the city. In this year’s promotional video, George Strait says, “Hello Atlanta, it’s been a while.” Lars Ulrich of Metallica continues, “You better open the roof! We’re gonna blast it open! Come see us play live.”

The concert weekend serves to give back to the community through donating a portion of its proceeds. Metallica’s charity All Within My Hands, which supports workforce education and fights hunger, and Military Warriors Support Foundation, which works to provide housing for U.S. veterans, will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Tickets for ATLive will go on sale July 16 via Ticketmaster here for 11/5 and here for 11/6.
