No-no-no! I've got a straight shot in on I-20-166, going to the north side of town really screws me up. WAY too much traffic up that way and the venue, while a good one, is just too small. Besides, I think you can get away with some things better at Lakewood than you can at Verizon. :pirate:

Dont care where he plays (Lakewood or Verizon)...JUST ANNOUCE IT!!!

Went to BHam show this past weekend...great time as always! But there is NOTHING like see JB & the Reefers outside, tailgating, with friends & fins!

So excited about the show this year. Last year was my husband's first experience, and we are so excited to go again this year. This will be my 7th show in Atlanta.

I was looking back through the past Atlanta dates at Lakewood (cause I sure hope we aren't talking a Phillips Arena show) and he has played July and August. Bet those were some hot and sticky shows, a dusty Atlanta parking lot party in 95+ degree heat. If this is the case we're going to need more ice, and I mean a lot more ice! :pirate:

Yes, July concerts in ATL can be brutal. We did back-to-back shows July 4th weekend in 1997; 100+ both days. The worst was the in 2000 when the temperature hit 106!
