ATL UNTRAPPED: The show goes on
November’s concert calendar features Sexyy Red, Teezo Touchdown, and Flo Milli, among many other heavy hitters
Over the last three months, there have been an insane influx of must-see concerts, from Beyoncé’s “Bey-T-L” takeover in August and Drake and 21 Savage’s highly anticipated takeover in September to the Run the Jewels’ four-night stint at The Eastern at the start of October and, of course, the Janet Jackson and Kendrick Lamar-headlining ONE Musicfest last month. Surprisingly, the show’s not stopping anytime soon. Just like the months that came before it, November is absolutely packed with concerts from Hip-Hop’s leading artists, so hopefully you’ve still got some bread set aside for when these must-attend Hip-Hop and R&B tours hit Atlanta this month.
Lil Uzi Vert, Coca-Cola Roxy — Philadelphia’s own Lil Uzi Vert unleashed his third studio album, Pink Tape, on June 30, and one week after its release, the LP became the first Hip-Hop album to hit the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 in 2023. Regardless of whether you subscribe to the belief that commercial success is tied to how good a record is, Lil Uzi’s ascension to the top of the charts with Pink Tape felt like Hip-Hop had just been resuscitated. This month, he’s bringing that same energy to the Coca-Cola Roxy with a sold-out show on Monday, November 6, and a newly added date on Monday, November 27. Upgrades (fast lane access, VIP bar access, etc.) are available for both shows.
$114-$129+. 8:00 p.m. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave SE #500, Atlanta, GA 30339. cocacolaroxy.com @cocacolaroxy
Lil Yachty, Coca-Cola Roxy — Last year, a random leak of a song called “Poland” went viral, and to probably most music listeners’ surprise, it catapulted Lil Yachty back into the music industry’s upper echelon of artists. Soon thereafter, Yachty turned heads even more by dropping his fifth studio album and lauded departure record, Let’s Start Here., on January 27, and since its release, the Atlanta-bred artist has been on an unbelievable run thanks to singles like “Strike (Holster),” “SOLO STEPPIN CRETE BOY,” and the J. Cole-assisted “The Secret Recipe.” With his forthcoming show at the Coca-Cola Roxy, Yachty is perfectly poised to put an exclamation point on the end of an already incredible year, so make sure you grab tickets to Lil Boat’s homecoming concert on Wednesday, November 8.
$49-$69+. 8:00 p.m. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave SE #500, Atlanta, GA 30339. cocacolaroxy.com @cocacolaroxy
Flo Milli & Maiya The Don, Tabernacle — Earlier this year, Flo Milli delivered the extended version of her 2022 debut album You Still Here, Ho?, and several months later, it has quietly remained one of the hardest rap releases of the year. To further cement her victorious breakout campaign over the last few years, the Mobile, Alabama native has embarked on her second headlining trek, the Thanks For Coming Here, Ho Tour. Joining Flo Milli for the 16-date North American tour is fellow rising femcee Maiya The Don, a Brooklyn-born rapper who gained notoriety last year with her viral “Telfy” single. Grab some tickets and prepare to be impressed.
$37-$52+. 8:00 p.m. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303. livenation.com/venue/KovZpaFEZe/tabernacle-events @tabernacleatl
Sexyy Red, Buckhead Theatre — There’s arguably no up-and-coming artist that’s been more integral to the progression of Hip-Hop in 2023 than Sexyy Red. Although she had been familiar to some internet rap sleuths thanks to her viral 2018 track “Ah Thousand Jugs,” Sexyy Red fully captured the culture’s attention when she released her Tay Keith-produced single “Pound Town” this past January. A viral wave of fandom and a career-altering Nicki Minaj guest verse later, Sexyy Red has officially solidified her status as one of Hip-Hop’s most exciting rappers to watch, and later this month, she’ll bring her Hoods Hottest Princess Tour to Atlanta for two shows — one at the new experiential venue The Dome on November 11, and another at the Buckhead Theatre on November 14.
$108-$283. 8:00 p.m. Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Rd, Atlanta, GA 30305. livenation.com/venue/KovZpZAJAllA/buckhead-theatre-events @buckheadtheatre
Sampha, The Eastern — Over six years have passed since Sampha shared his beautiful debut LP Process, and last month, fans of the UK-bred artist could rejoice because he finally released his highly anticipated follow-up album, titled Lahai. Later this month, they’ll have even more to get excited for because the Grammy-nominated artist is hitting the road in support of the new record. On Wednesday, November 15, Sampha will be taking over The Eastern for an intimate evening concert, and interestingly enough, it will mark the final North American Date of the “Plastic 100℃” singer’s Lahai Tour. Get your tickets while you still can.
$35-$40. 8:00 p.m. The Eastern, 800 Old Flat Shoals Rd SE, Atlanta, GA 30316. easternatl.com @easternatl
Earl Sweatshirt with The Alchemist, MIKE & Black Noi$e, Heaven — Due to the convoluted release strategy for Earl Sweatshirt and the Alchemist’s new joint album, Voir Dire, trying to get ahold of the highly anticipated album has been just as zany as Alfred’s hunt for Blueblood in Atlanta’s Season 4 opener. In contrast to their new Web3 album, however, the duo’s forthcoming Voire Dire Tour show at the Masquerade is set to be far more accessible to the average rap fan. Skip the scavenger hunts and QR codes and simply secure your tickets from Ticketmaster or the Masquerade’s box office.
$117-$233. 7:00 p.m. Heaven at Masquerade, 50 Lower Alabama Street #110, Atlanta, GA 30303. masqueradeatlanta.com The Masquerade
Doja Cat & Doechii, State Farm Arena — The latter half of September belongs to an epic string of arena tours, and Doja Cat’s Scarlet Tour is set to kick off State Farm Arena’s exciting November concert slate on Sunday, November 19. Fresh off the release of her jaw-dropping fourth studio album Scarlet, Doja Cat spent Halloween kicking off her first-ever headlining arena tour, and later this month, she’ll be teaming up with rising TDE artist Doechii when her Scarlet Tour arrives in Atlanta. The two sensational and incredibly talented acts haven’t released any music together as of yet, but given the showmanship of Doja and Doechii, concert goers will definitely be in for a treat with this one.
$79-$199+. 7:30 p.m. State Farm Arena, 1 State Farm Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. statefarmarena.com @statefarmarena
6lack, Quin & Jordan Ward, State Farm Arena — With his 2016 debut album FREE 6LACK and his groundbreaking 2018 follow-up East Atlanta Love Letter, 6lack solidified himself as one of the most important Atlanta R&B acts of the late 2010s. After a five-year hiatus, LVRN’s premier male act finally returned with his first full-length project of the 2020s — titled Since I Have A Lover — on March 24, 2023, and this fall, he’ll be touring in support of the dreamy new LP. 6lack will have rising artists Quin and Jordan Ward in tow for his Since I Have A Lover Tour, and if you’re a sucker for tour finales, the Eastside artist’s Atlanta tour stop will not only be a long-awaited homecoming show — it will also be the final tour date of his tour’s North American pilgrimage.
$29-$69+. 8:00 p.m. State Farm Arena, 1 State Farm Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. statefarmarena.com @statefarmarena
Travis Scott & Teezo Touchdown, State Farm Arena — After Doja Cat and 6lack finish warming up State Farm Arena, Travis Scott is set to also make himself feel at home at Atlanta’s go-to arena on November 25. Like Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape Tour, Travis’s forthcoming Circus Maximus Tour boasts two non-consecutive Atlanta tour dates — the first on Saturday, November 25, and the second on Friday, December 1. For his first headlining tour since the horrific Astroworld tragedy in 2021, the Cactus Jack founder is centering the sounds of his latest LP and bonafide commercial juggernaut, Utopia, so attendees can look forward to hearing some of the record’s biggest smashes, including “Fe!n,” “Topia Twins,” “I KNOW?,” and the Drake-assisted “Meltdown.” The first date on November 25 is technically sold out, but it’s still worth considering attending it because resale tickets are pretty much on-par with the added tour date on December 1.
$61-$292+. 7:00 p.m. State Farm Arena, 1 State Farm Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. statefarmarena.com @statefarmarena
Lil Uzi Vert, Coca-Cola Roxy — Upon announcing the original dates for the Pink Tape Tour, Lil Uzi Vert’s original Coca-Cola Roxy concert on November 6 quickly sold out, but thankfully, Uzi was able to add another Atlanta date to the tour. Hip-Hop’s weirdest rockstar will return to the city on Monday, November 27, so if you weren’t able to secure tickets to Uzi’s November 6 show, this is your second chance to experience the rap-rock chaos of Pink Tape live in concert.
$109-$159+. 8:00 p.m. Coca-Cola Roxy, 800 Battery Ave SE #500, Atlanta, GA 30339. cocacolaroxy.com @cocacolaroxy
Travis Scott & Teezo Touchdown, State Farm Arena — Travis Scott’s Circus Maximus Tour is spinning the block on Atlanta after this month comes to an end, with an encore concert slated for Friday, December 1. Of course, this second date serves as yet another opportunity for fans to witness Travis Scott’s sure-to-be epic comeback tour, but it also represents another chance to get familiar with rising Beaumont, Texas-born artist, Teezo Touch. The Not Fit For Society artist is fresh off the release of his campy, heartfelt, and self-proclaimed “Rock & Boom” debut album How Do You Sleep At Night?, and his opening slot on Travis’s tour is a major opportunity to spread the sound of his devilishly clever — albeit polarizing — record with a huge new subset of rap fans. Pull up for Teez. Stay for Trav.
$61-$251+. 7:00 p.m. State Farm Arena, 1 State Farm Drive, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. statefarmarena.com @statefarmarena
