Fans of Janet Jackson might feel the need to “scream” after the Atlanta Hawks won Game 5.
With 2.1 seconds left in regulation, Hawks standout Trae Young made a 30-foot three-pointer to help the Hawks overcome the Celtics, 119-117, in Boston. The Celtics are currently up 3-2 in the first-round series; therefore, Game 6 will be played at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena on Thursday.
There was a scheduling difficulty as a result. Jackson’s “Together Again” tour was supposed to play at State Farm Arena on Thursday, but guests were notified via email that the performance had been moved up one day to accommodate the Hawks.
The Janet Jackson concert that was initially set for Thursday, April 27 at State Farm Arena has been changed to Friday, April 28, according to a statement from Live Nation. “All Thursday night show tickets will be honoured for Friday night’s performance. Anyone who can’t make it can get a refund at the place of purchase.
Without guard Dejounte Murray, who was suspended on Tuesday after a Sunday altercation with referee Gediminas Petraitis, the Hawks managed to pull off the comeback victory.
The Hawks Playoff basketball, Janet Jackson, and Taylor Swift are all taking place in downtown Atlanta at this moment, which is incredibly exciting for the community, according to Trey Feazell, executive vice president of arena programming for State Farm Arena. We’re dedicated to making sure everyone who attends one of our events has a fantastic time, and we’re working with our partners to make the process as simple as possible.
After the victory, Young reportedly instructed Murray to “Be READY Game 6” because the team’s season wasn’t quite over. Following a 38 point, 13 assist effort, Young kept his word.
The Grammy Award winner’s current tour marks her first appearance on a stage since 2019, but Atlantan fans will have to wait another day.
