Grand Funk Railroad and the Spin Doctors play The Fred Amphitheater in Peachtree City at 8 p.m. Generally acknowledged as one of the precursors to heavy metal, Grand Funk laid the groundwork for such bands as Foreigner, Journey, Van Halen and Bon Jovi with its signature hard driving sound; a combination of soulful vocals, muscular instrumentation and forceful pop melodies.

Mega-hits “We’re An American Band,” “I’m Your Captain/Closer To Home,” “Locomotion,” and “Some Kind Of Wonderful” still receive continuous airplay on Classic Rock radio. Legend has it that Prince named his first rock band Grand Central as a nod to Grand Funk. Tickets range from $45 to $100.
