Gladys Knight Opens Summer Concert Series at The Fred

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

Gladys Knight has been belting out her own brand of Pop, R&B, and Adult Contemporary hits since the 1960s. This Saturday night, May 17, the Georgia native and seven-time Grammy winner brings her iconic performance to the Frederick Brown, Jr. Amphitheater. 

Concert goers will be treated to such hits as “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “You’re the Best that Ever Happened to Me,” and “Neither One of Us.”

Ms. Knight’s performance is particularly special because it officially opens The Fred’s 20 Year Anniversary Season of the summer concert series under the stars. 

Well-known local jazz musician, Toni Byrd, will open for Ms. Knight. Ms. Byrd can be seen performing at The Georgia Shrimp Company in Peachtree City on a regular basis.

A limited number of reserved seats are available and may be purchased online at The Fred's website or by calling the box office at 770-631-0630. You also can stop by to purchase them at 201 McIntosh Trial.

Gates open at 7pm, Ms. Byrd goes on at 8pm, and Ms. Knight will take the stage at 9pm. Patrons are allowed to bring in their own coolers and food as well as have the opportunity to purchase food from The Fred concessionaire, Georgia Shrimp Company.
