DESCRIPTION

The theater is seen as staple to the Athens' community because of the endless entertainment and mass popularity of the theater's concerts and events as well as the newly built rooftop bar. Several musical legends started their career performing in the Athens area primarily at the Theater itself. On May 20, 1978, the popular band the B-52s paid to perform at Georgia Theater, and the following year, The Police played there as part of the band's first U.S. tour. In subsequent years to the opening, it has been the host to many shows including shows featuring members of R.E.M., Widespread Panic, Beck, Warren Zevon, Umphreys McGee, and Dave Matthews Band. The Derek Trucks Band recorded their 2004 concert album Live at Georgia Theater at the venue. The historical value of the theater drives Athens' residence to host weddings and special events at the Theater.

The newly renovated Georgia Theater is designed to be a concert venue with a state-of-the-art sound system and numerous acoustic improvements; together with improved seating, two balconies, and an open air roof area with a full bar and comfortable patio seating
