Kem, Robin Thicke and Jeffrey Osborne
This smoothie trio is teaming for a Valentine’s Weekend Celebration, so you’re certain to hear plenty of gooey love ballads. Thicke last performed in Atlanta in 2014, during the tumultuous period of his separation from wife Paula Patton, while Kem played the city twice in 2015 — opening for Charlie Wilson earlier in the year, and then headlining a Fox show with Avant that November — and Osborne shared a bill with Stephanie Mills last May at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.
8 p.m. Feb. 11. $60-$150. Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta. 1-855-285-8499, www.foxtheatre.org.
There are certainly worse ways to spend a Valentine’s Day evening with your significant other than listening to the dreamy vocals of the Italian tenor. Last fall marked the 20th anniversary of his global breakthrough, “Romanza,” which was celebrated with an anniversary edition of the album.
With the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Heather Headley. 8 p.m. Feb. 14. $79-$369. Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464, www.infiniteenergycenter.com.
After a successful summer run with its tour called “The Album Series,” the lineup of Steve Howe (guitar), Alan White (drums), Jon Davison (vocals), Billy Sherwood (bass) and Geoff Downes (keyboard) have added a series of dates. The show will feature the 1980 album, “Drama,” performed in its entirety, sides one and four of 1973’s double album, “Tales From the Topographic Oceans,” as well as selections from the band’s extensive list of fan favorites and hits.
7:30 p.m. Feb. 14. $49.50-$125.50. Atlanta Symphony Hall, 1280 Peachtree St. N.E., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com.
The mercurial singer-songwriter left Atlanta fans with a bitter taste last year when she showed up for a performance at Chastain Park Amphitheatre more than two hours late and played for barely 40 minutes before curfew kicked in. Maybe this time, her driver won’t get lost on the way to the venue.
8 p.m. Feb. 14. $59.50-$105.50. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, www.livenation.com.
The modern country outlaw launched his massive 60-date “Holdin’ My Own” tour in January, and for the first time in his touring career, he won’t be joined by an opening act. Instead, Church will play two full sets with an intermission.
8 p.m. Feb. 16. $29-$89. Infinite Energy Center, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464, www.infiniteenergycenter.com.
