Peachtree City has canceled all scheduled concerts at the Frederick Brown Amphitheater for the rest of 2020.

“With the health and safety of fans, performers, and venue staff as its foremost priority, Peachtree City has made the difficult decision to cancel the Fred 2020 summer concert season,” said a news release from Chris Adamson of Premier Events, which manages the venue.

“Georgia Governor Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency due to the Covid-19 health crisis, which restricts large gatherings of more than 50 unless venues can enforce social distancing guidelines. Based on the space limitations in the venue communal areas, the requirement to limit venue capacity below what has already sold for every concert, as well as performers electing to cancel their 2020 tour plans, the season cancellation is a tough but necessary decision,” the news release said.

This will include all remaining concerts for the 2020 calendar year. The Trace Adkins concert, which was rescheduled for May 1, 2021, is not affected. 

Canceled shows for the 2020 season include:

August 8 — Daughtry

August 14 — Pop 2000 tour Hosted by Lance Bass of *NSYNC with Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, O-Town, & LFO

August 21 — 38 Special

August 22 — Georgia Player’s Guild: A Revue of Georgia Music History

August 29 — Rumours, A Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band

September 12 — Departure: The Journey Tribute Band

September 19 — The Black Jacket Symphony: Presenting The Eagles Hotel California

September 25 — Little River Band

October 2 — Gone West

October 10 — RATT and Cinderella’s Tom Keifer

  1. Meanwhile Fayetteville just held their Rodney Adkins concert in the southern ground amphitheatre July 17th in a safe manner and they will be hosting another show in 3 weeks! You get what you vote for Peachtree. There was no danger at the amphitheatre as they blocked off some seats between each group not like you were shaking hands with everyone and you could wear a mask! Which we are told is the be all of safety.

    • I would think tickets already sold would also come into play…who is told they can’t attend due to “social distancing” requirements?

      Me, I had tickets to the Fred…I’m glad they refunded mine, not sitting in the heat wearing a mask..
