Plenty of classic rock – and a nod to the New Wave of the ‘80s – highlights the 2017 Delta Live Nation Concert Series A at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.
Bookending the season is the power chord rock of Deep Purple – who are in the midst of their “Long Goodbye Tour” and plan to release the new album “Infinite” on April 7 – with musical mates Alice Cooper and the Edgar Winter Band. They’ll perform on Aug. 21.
Subscription tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. March 5 via www.chastainseries.com or by calling 404-233-2227.
