Check out the crowd at the Earth, Wind & Fire show at Chastain Park Amphitheatre last year. Think the shows below will draw the same kind of crowd? AJC file photo

Spotted first on the Atlanta Music Scene Blog: this year’s Chastain concert Series A lineup includes hitmakers of decades past, and more announcements are on the way. The Series B lineup should be released soon, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will announcement will come later, too.

KC would be awesome to see and, as always, Ms. Benatar has still “got it”!! Saw her last year and would go again. As far as the price of tickets? Chastain pricing is better than the bigger venues. And, you can BYOB!!
