Get ready - Chris Stapleton and Billy Joel are coming to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium!

The two singer/songwriters will headline ATLive as it returns to Mercedes-Benz Stadium for two nights this fall, Nov. 11 and Nov. 12.

“We are proud to announce an incredible lineup of artists for ATLive,” said senior vice president and chief revenue officer, AMB Sports and Entertainment, Tim Zulawski. “The ATLive concert series has quickly become a must-see event for Atlanta and the Southeast, delivering a world-class experience at Mercedes-Benz Stadium with some of the greatest artists of this generation.”

The third annual concert experience includes a lineup that can’t be missed. Headliners Billy Joel and Chris Stapleton will be joined by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Lionel Richie, nine-time Grammy award-winner Sheryl Crow, reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Miranda Lambert, 21x nominated, multiple Grammy award-winner Dwight Yoakam and rising country sensation Katie Pruitt. This isn’t the first time ATLive has brought together an all-star lineup – the past two years have brought together sold-out Mercedes-Benz Stadium audiences to watch acts such as George Strait, Metallica, Luke Combs, Eric Church, Cage The Elephant, Greta Van Fleet, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and more.

Let’s brag on the headliners for just a minute. Billy Joel has had 33 Top 40 hits and 23 Grammy nominations since he signed his first solo recording contract in 1972. Joel has been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and has received the Recording Industry Association of America Diamond Award.
