BTS

K-pop superstars BTS are going on a big world tour this year that will finally bring them back to Atlanta, and their legion of fans – known as ARMY – have been in a frenzy ever since the announcement. Tickets go on sale Friday, Feb. 7, via Ticketmaster for the May 17 “Map of the Soul” concert at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Georgia Tech, but are likely to already be sold out. Why? Because ARMY go first crack at tickets via a pre-sale, and a check of social media shows that fans are coming from all over the country. You can try your luck at this link, but there’s a good chance if you want to see these idols perform, you’ll be buying resale tickets.

The Rolling Stones will bring Mick and the boys back to Atlanta for a big show dubbed “No Filter” at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on July 9. Tickets go on sale Feb. 14 and you can find out more at rollingstones.com/tour. Like BTS, this will be The Stone’s first show in Atlanta in five years after they played a sellout concert at Bobby Dodd Stadium back in 2015.
