The Atlanta Hawks are still alive in the playoffs and that will force fans planning to attend Jackson's concert in the city this week to wait a day to see the music star. The Hawks' win over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, April 25, 2023, means that State Farm Arena is double-booked for Thursday night, April 27.
