A couple of concerts have been added to the Atlanta Botanical Garden summer series.
Pop-rockers Lifehouse and Switchfoot will perform at 7 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Great Lawn at the Atlanta garden. Tickets are $45.50 (members are $43.50).
And former Atlanta country star Jennifer Nettles will take the stage at the Ivester Amphitheater at the garden’s Gainesville location at 8 p.m. July 14. Tickets are $57.50 (members are $55.50).
Nettles, of Sugarland fame, is recovering from a broken rib she suffered earlier this month while preparing for a Time Inc. presentation at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York.
Meanwhile, hitmakers Lifehouse (“You and Me,” “Whatever it Takes”) and Switchfoot (“Meant to Live,” “Dare You to Move”) are on a joint tour dubbed “Looking for Summer.”
They’ll join previously announced Atlanta performers Gladys Knight, Barenaked Ladies, Brandi Carlile and more.
This year marks the 15th anniversary for the Atlanta Botanical Garden “Concerts in the Garden” series.
