Atlanta Concerts this week: Miranda Lambert, The Killers

Miranda Lambert heads to town on Saturday.

FRIDAY

Shawn Mullins

The Atlanta-based singer-songwriter hasn’t released an album since 2015’s “My Stupid Heart,” but continues to be a true road warrior. You know you’ll hear his 1998 mega-hit “Lullaby,” but Mullins also packs his set lists with more recent heart-tuggers, such as “Light You Up” and “Beautiful Wreck.”

8 p.m. Jan. 19. Sold out (waitlist available). $26-$36. City Winery Atlanta, 650 North Ave., Ponce City Market, Atlanta. 404-946-3791, citywinery.com/atlanta/.

SATURDAY

Miranda Lambert

Before she hits the road with Little Big Town this summer, the country firecracker is headlining her own party. Her “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour – which takes its name from the lyrics of her song, “Highway Vagabond” – launched Jan. 18 in Greenville, S.C. Lambert last played Atlanta in 2014 on her “Platinum” tour. Fans attending her Atlanta show are encouraged to “Fill The Little Red Wagon” with pet food, treats and supplies at the entrance to the arena on Saturday to benefit FurKids Animal Rescue and Shelter. Those who participate will be entered for a chance to win two tickets and a meet and greet with Lambert.

With Jon Pardi and Brent Cobb. 7 p.m. Jan. 20. $43.75-$78.75. Infinite Energy Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464, http://www.infiniteenergycenter.com.

SUNDAY

The Killers

In 2016, The Killers captivated fans with their headlining set at Music Midtown and earlier this month, they embarked on another round of dates to support their new album, “Wonderful Wonderful.” But their sets have been stocked with all of the synth-adorned anthems that fans adore, including “Mr. Brightside” and “When We Were Young.” Killers guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer are taking a hiatus on this tour, so frontman Brandon Flowers and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. will be backed by touring band comprised of guitarist Ted Sablay, bassist Jake Blanton, a keyboardist-rhythm guitarist and three backup singers.

With Alex Cameron. 8 p.m. Jan. 21. $25-$90. Infinite Energy Arena, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth. 770-626-2464,  http://www.infiniteenergycenter.com.

MONDAY

Jonny Lang

The one-time blues guitar prodigy (he’s now 36, so no longer a prodigy, but still a jaw-dropping musician) recently released “Signs,” his first new album in four years. Though he’s been branching out of the blues corner for years with his blistering instrumental work, Lang returns to the blues a bit more intently on his latest recording. Lang has shared stages with The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith and still spends a lot of time trading licks with Buddy Guy.

With Blue Water Highway. 8 p.m. Jan. 22. $35-$155. Center Stage, 1374 W. Peachtree St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000, http://www.ticketmaster.com.
