New Album, New Tour, Same Great Band

Rush will almost certainly come back to Encore Park. Don't miss it next time.

The quartet performed a blend of pop and musical theater tunes in their concert at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. But they didn't use the ASO's musical talents, just their bodies.
UPDATE Aug. 16: While I'm awaiting confirmation, it appears that the ASO was playing music for this concert, but nobody else heard it. ArtsAtl.com reports that the muscians were told at rehearsal that Il Divo would have a recording of another orchestra piped through the amphitheater sound system. ************ Il Divo performed its 100th show for an appreciative audience in Alpharetta on Sunday night, as approximately 7,000 audience members listened to the classical crossover quartet, backed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. This was the second Simon Cowell "creation" at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre this month. Kelly Clarkson was in town on Aug. 8 with The Fray. The American Idol had to face Cowell as one of the judges on that show's …

Did you know that the first American Idol is a Vampire Diaries fan?
The stage at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta wasn't big enough for Kelly Clarkson and The Fray's Isaac Slade. Both artists – and Clarkson's backup singers – ran out in the audience, only to hop up on small platforms to continue their performances closer to audience members in the "cheap seats." Slade even made a mad dash up one side of the amphitheater, across the front of the lawn section and back down again. Slade took the the keyboards up in the seats. And Clarkson sang several songs from these platforms, telling the crowd that when she was a kid, if she even got into a concert it was way in the back. The crowd appreciated these efforts by the artists. Suddenly fans in the back of the amphitheatre could see the faces of …
