The 2021 Sweetland Amphitheatre concert season kicked off on Friday, July 16, with a sold out show featuring Travis Tritt and Pryor & Lee. The venue is announcing plans for two more shows for the 2021 season featuring multi-award-winning performers in R&B and country music genres. Located in the heart of historic downtown LaGrange in Boyd Park, the popular open-air concert venue will feature Boyz II Men on Sunday, Sept. 19, and Kip Moore on Friday, Oct. 8.

Boyz II Men remains one of the most iconic R&B groups in music history. They redefined popular R&B music with timeless hits and created some of the most celebrated classic songs of the past two decades, including “End of the Road”, “I’ll Make Love to You”, “One Sweet Day”, “Motownphilly”. Throughout their 25-year career, Boyz II Men have won four Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, nine Soul Train Awards, three Billboard Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and more. The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time, with an astounding 64 million albums sold. For the past two decades, Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalog of hits filled with smooth harmonies and enduring themes, their signature soulful multi-octave sound and incredible vocals. Ask any successful pop or R&B superstar which artists have inspired them – chances are Boyz II Men will be at the top. From Justin Timberlake and Usher, to Justin Bieber and Beyonce, the most successful stars in the industry look to Boyz II Men as their idols.
