The Atlanta Hawks’ playoff run has caused a minor shift in schedule for the upcoming Bette Midler concert.
Midler’s “Divine Intervention” tour will now play Philips Arena at 8 p.m. May 14, a day later than scheduled.
Tickets for the original performance will be honored. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
“We are very appreciative of Bette Midler and her willingness to reschedule her performance. We have had the pleasure of hosting her before and her show is outstanding,” said Trey Feazell, executive vice president and general manager of Philips Arena. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to her fans.”
The Hawks battle the Washington Wizards on Tuesday at Philips for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals before heading to D.C. May 9 and May 11. The May 13 date is being held at Philips if a Game 5 is needed.
