Indigo Girls, k.d. lang cap Concerts in Garden

Add this share

With lesbian juggernauts bookending the Concerts in the Garden series at Atlanta Botanical Garden this summer, gay fans may want to hurry to purchase coveted tickets before they sell out.

For the 10th year, Concerts in the Garden brings music to the lush lawn, and as usual, it includes some big draws for gay crowds. Check out the all-gay Indigo Girls crowd from last year’s event.

Eight shows this summer start with k.d. lang and Jane Siberry on June 1 and continue through the Sept. 14 Indigo Girls show. Between lesbian magnet shows, look for performances by Vince Gill, Merle Haggard, Keb Mo and Aaron Neville, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Chris Isaak.

You can get your tickets online, and before you head out, check out the Botanical Gardens’ Know Before You Go for rules. Like, you can’t bring your own food and drink. You can, however, pre-order meals from gay-owned MetroFresh to munch on during the concerts.
