Peach Drop 2017 New Year's Eve lineup: Jeezy, TLC and Tyrese


Some familiar Atlanta names will perform at this year’s Peach Drop in its new home at Woodruff Park.

Rapper Jeezy, R&B powerhouse TLC and rapper/actor Tyrese (Gibson) will perform at the free downtown event, which begins at 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Entertainment is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

Jeezy recently released a new album, “Pressure,” and is readying a 2018 tour that will play the Tabernacle on March 10.

This summer, TLC - Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas – released the first new TLC album in 15 years and headlined the “I Love the ‘90s – The Party Continues” tour , which visited Infinite Energy Arena in September.

While Thomas still lives in Atlanta, Watkins is an L.A. resident, but returned to her old stomping grounds in October to discuss her memoir, “A Sick Life.”

Tyrese, meanwhile, was spotted in Atlanta earlier this month at the election night party for Mayor-elect Keisha Lance Bottoms. The “Fast and the Furious” actor released his sixth album, “Black Rose” in 2015, claiming it would likely be his last. But, in October, Tyrese indicated he was working on a new release that “will change hip-hop.”
