Atlanta Music Scene

Melissa Ruggieri covers the Atlanta’s vibrant and evolving music scene. From hot new artists to Music Midtown to shows at the Tabernacle, she’s got you covered.

Free concert tickets to Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor and more

[Congrats to randomly selected winner Bob B.!]

Through May 20, Live Nation is holding its Kickoff to Summer event with a $20 ticket offer to select shows.

Tickets to the concerts – primarily at area amphitheaters -- can be purchased at

But to get you in the concert-going frame of mind, I'm giving away a pair of tickets to select shows every day this week. You are entering to win tickets to one of them. I’ll list the day’s selections by noon and you will have until noon the following day to enter.

To do so: Send me an email at

A few basic rules: Please do not enter if you cannot attend the show. Only one entry per email address. Make sure to include the name of the show you want to attend. And if you put anything other than “Live Nation tickets Day 4” on Thursday (or “…Day 5” on Friday,  – get it?) in the subject line, I won’t see your email and you will have zero chance of winning. Seriously. If your subject line says, "I love Gwen Stefani!", well, great. Thanks for sharing. But that's as far as it will get.

OK, ladies, for Day 4 of the giveaway, this one is for you (and yes, guys, you can enter, too!). Your choices for ONE pair of tickets are:

Ellie Goulding with Matt and Kim (reserved seats) – 7 p.m. June 6 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.

Melissa Etheridge with Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo (reserved seats) – 7 p.m. July 16 at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.

Gwen Stefani with Eve (reserved seats) – 7 p.m. July 29 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.

Meghan Trainor with Hailee Steinfeld and Common Kings (reserved seats) – 7 p.m. Aug. 4 at Chastain Park Amphitheatre.

I will randomly select the winner and post the name at the top of the corresponding day’s blog post. Good luck! And make sure to come back to the blog every day this week for another round of shows to check out.

Also, while it isn't required, I would appreciate it if you would follow the AJC Music Scene on Facebook and Twitter.
