“We are very excited to bring such a talented group artists together for an incredible music experience,” states Tim Zulawski, senior vice-president and chief revenue ficer, AMB Sports and Entertainment. “From the beginning, our goal was to create a concert series that will transcend what most expect and become the must-see event for Atlanta. And in doing so, allows us the opportunity to give back to our communities and those in need. We are committed to delivering world-class experiences and ATLive is just the next opportunity to do it.”

Tickets for each night will go on-sale Friday, August 23rd at 10 am ET and may be purchased by visiting Ticketmaster. There will not be a multi-night ticket option for this event and each night varies with pricing.
Giving back to others is at the foundation all the Blank Family Businesses. As part that core value, AMBSE in partnership with the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation will be donating a portion the proceeds from ATLive to two very worthy organizations. The Johnnie Mac Soldier’s Fund honors military service and sacrifice by providing scholarships to veterans and military family members, particularly children our nation’s fallen and disabled, and the Quest Community Development Organization whose mission is to develop affordable housing and provide needs-based community services to enhance the quality life for underserved individuals and families.
The star-studded line-up comes to AMBSE in partnership with MAC Presents and ATLive will be produced by AMBSE with Messina Group overseeing production shows.
