A new ranking has dispelled any lingering myth that there’s not enough to get into this summer in Atlanta.
Atlanta ranked No. 3 in the country on StubHub’s “Top 10 U.S. Cities With the Most Live Summer Events” list for cities with the most concerts, sports and theater events this summer, trailing only behind Las Vegas at No. 1 and Boston at No. 2.
StubHub, an online ticketing service, compiled the list by calculating ticket sales on its site per capita in cities across the country.
Top shows leading the pack, according to StubHub, are Drake and Future’s Summer Sixteen tour date at Philips Arena in August, the much-anticipated Guns N’ Roses’ reunion show in July at the Georgia Dome and several Wizard of Oz shows booked at Fox Theatre this month.
Music: Guns N Roses, The Cure, Drake
Sports: Atlanta Braves, Georgia Bulldogs, Atlanta Falcons Preseason
