Can anyone advise on parking not at the stadium but with easy access to I 75 North away from most of the traffic after the show? I don't mind walking up to a mile or so. I'm thinking the area near the FOX Theatre might be where I want to be. And The Varsity would be on my path.

tonyc - Go to TicketAlternative. They have a colored map list of 7 Parking Lots they sell print tickets for. I chose the East Lot with easy access to I-85 N leaving the show. Sounds like You want the same exit idea , 3rd street deck, W.Peachtree AT&T deck , or the East lot. there is a pedestrian walkway over and under 85. Check it out. East Lot was $20 and I already have my parking ticket printed. good luck

My son saw them open for Jason Isbell (formerly of Drive-By Truckers) and thought they were great. Turned me onto them. Very soulful. I think you'll like them.

Thanks. Yes, I have checked that out. I was just wondering if there might be some city or private parking options relatively close. It might be easier to get out parking a little farther away.

Any word on alcohol sales at the stadium? They served at a Jimmy Buffett show a few years back.

Whoooo HOOOO!!!

I'm officially going to the Atlanta show! It'll be Stones show #10 for me, going back to 1975. Found a ticket on eBay for $79.50, which I figure is just about as good as it will get.

When you are by yourself, you can also pretty much just "float" around the stadium and sit somewhere different for every other song.

(Picture Brian Jones walking around Monterrey!)

So....Elmo....you are playing at the Terrace.....when? Djembe drum and backup vocals? Elmo and Goose, LIVE? :-)

Marv Peck, are you there, too?

Planning to just sit out front and play until I'm ran off or arrested! Love for you to join me.

Georgian Terrace is a landmark. Directly across from the Fox Theater, God only knows how many brain cells I left in that building ( and the Omni for that matter ). There are more "posh" accomodations, even on Peachtree, but the "Terrace" has something the newer paces will never have. Character. Enjoy.

Yes, StonesHood thanks. I decided to get parking there in that same lot, too. Nice to have a firm place to go without having to drive around that is close to I-75N.

I posted this by itself, but I think the Atlanta folks might appreciate it more!

I play drums in a jazz band called STYLE POINTS from time to time here in Atlanta, with my oldest son on bass. We're also in another ATL band called the Amazing Mongooses (check out our album on iTunes or Amazon!)

This You Tube clip is from last night, at the Elliott Street Pub, near the Georgia Dome, in downtown Atlanta.

Sax player Eric Fontaine lovingly wrote this jazz arrangement of Super Mario Brothers and Super Mario Brothers 2.

Video game jazz.....a new genre!

Enjoy, and see all of you in Atlanta for the STONES on Tuesday!!!!
