Three concerts highlight weekend


Music lovers are in for a treat this weekend, as three very diverse acts take the stage at the county’s two amphitheaters.

On Friday, bring the kids to an awesome night of music under the stars in Peachtree City that your whole family will enjoy. The night includes performances by the McIntosh High School Chorus, local singer songwriter Paige McCauley, and up and coming new group – Beyond 5.

“When I first heard Beyond 5 perform at a music conference in Nashville, I knew that we had to bring them to Peachtree City” said Nancy Price, amphitheater manager. “They are extremely talented and could possibly reach ‘One Direction’ popularity.”

This Nashville-based group shares positive messages through their infectious songs and highly-acclaimed energetic performances, which have received an overwhelming response on a national and international level. Beyond 5 recently completed an eight-country tour of Asia, performing 27 concerts in 30 days for an estimated 25,000 audience members. Twenty-two flights later, the group returned to American soil to release their first full-length album on iTunes and embark on their first U.S./Canadian concert tour.

The gates open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.

Tickets for the show are only $20 for adults, $15 for students, and $15 for lawn.

To purchase tickets in advance, stop by the box office at 201 McIntosh Trail, or call 770-631-0630. For the entire concert schedule at the Fred, visit

Below, Night Fever plays at the Fred Saturday night.

If you loved the disco era of the early 70’s and the harmonic melodies of the mega group The Bee Gee’s, then you will love Night Fever in Peachtree City Saturday night.

Night Fever is the world’s number one production of the Bee Gees. This all Canadian cast from Toronto, Ontario, will take you back in time to one of the greatest bands in pop history.

From the early years to the disco era, you will hear all the hits.

The Bee Gees span over 50 years of hit songs and have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

The songs are done note for note, chord for chord, exactly like the record and backed by a live band of studio musicians; the sound is so close that you will think you are hearing the original recording.

There are a limited number of tables available for the show on Saturday night, as well as reserved and lawn seating tickets. Gold and Belgard tables are $240 and seat six. Picnic tables are $210. Reserved seating is $30 and lawn seats are $25. Tickets may be purchased online at, at The Fred box office, or by calling 770-631-0630.

Classic prog-rockers Kansas will get the 2014 concert series in Fayetteville kick started with their catalog of 70s and 80s hits. Opening for Kansas is Arc & Stones, a rising group on the modern music scene.

Expect them to perform their rockin’ classics like Carry on Wayward Son, and Point of No Return, and be prepared to pull out those cell phone “lighters” for Dust in the Wind.

Celebrating their 41st year as a band in 2014, Kansas’ has produced eight gold albums, three sextuple-platinum albums, one platinum live album and a million-selling gold single, ‘Dust in the Wind.’

Kansas is going to get things started with a bang and we are looking forward to an exciting season of great music. The amphitheater is a cool place that offers an outlet for Fayette County residents to have fun with friends and music. It is one of the most affordable, most comfortable concert venues in the region, and it’s all right here in Fayetteville.”
