Two-Night Concert Format Returns to The Fred

The “Fun” will be back at the Fred for the 09 season with the continuation of the Friday/Saturday night concert format. According to Nancy Price, manager of the Fred, this will allow all season ticket holders and sponsors to retain their existing seats for the upcoming season.

The previous 10 concert, two-night series (20 total concerts), will be reduced to one 6 concert series (12 total concerts). The 09 series will continue to host the same performer both Friday and Saturday nights. The concert series is expected to run from May through Sept. These twelve concerts will be augmented with four spotlight concerts that target various genres of music. The spotlight concerts will be one night performances and be scheduled throughout the summer. Season ticket holders will get first right of refusal on spotlight tickets. Additional family and community programs are also expected to be added to the schedule.

For the patrons of the Fred this equates to a more streamlined renewal process. There will be only one subscription process for the entire summer, rather than an early summer and late summer signup. The lineup for the series is expected to be announced in January with renewal letters sent during that same timeframe.

Amphitheater surveys are in the process of being compiled and results will be published for public review on the Amphitheater and city website. These surveys will provide input and direction from past and present patrons of the amphitheater, as well as Peachtree City residents regarding the 09 season at the Fred.

“We want to hear from the residents of Peachtree City” said Price. “The Fred belongs to the city, and the feedback from the citizens is very important to us. Our team is working hard to bring the fun back, and at the same time book a quality lineup that will offer something for everyone”. The Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater is a 2500 seat state-of-the art facility owned and operated by the city of Peachtree City. The Fred now falls under the Leisure Services Division, which oversees parks, recreation and library services. The box office is located at 201 McIntosh Trail, and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. For further information regarding the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, you may call 770-631-0630 or visit the website at
