Fox Theatre Institute benefit concert to feature Drive-By Truckers, Drivin N Cryin, Bill Berry of R.E.M.

The Fox Theatre Institute will mark 10 years of preservation efforts and supporting historic theatre spaces with a special benefit concert, “Revival,” on Friday, Sept. 13, 7 p.m. at the Fox.

Hosted by Kevn Kinney, the evening will feature performances by Drive-By Truckers, Drivin N Cryin, Dodd & The Councilmen featuring Bill Berry of R.E.M. and Michelle Malone.

Fans can also score some coveted music memorabilia in an online silent auction, available now. Silent auction items include all-access passes to the Atlanta Film Festival, a chef’s dinner for two at Staplehouse and tickets to Jazz Fest at the Plaza paired with a one-night stay at The Lodge on Lake Oconee. Participants can access the silent auction portal by texting “REVIVAL” to 243725. Everyone who registers will be automatically entered to win a pair of tickets to see the Avett Brothers in November with Marquee Club presented by Lexus access and a stay at the Georgian Terrace the night of the show. The silent auction will end Sept. 13 at 11:59 p.m.

Tickets to ‘Revival’ start at $35 and are available for purchase at FoxTheatre.org, the Fox Theatre Ticket Office at 660 Peachtree St. and by calling (855) 285-8499. Access to the Marquee Club presented by Lexus is also available as an add-on for $55 per person or free for Marquee Club members. Marquee Club attendees will be granted exclusive access to bid on six different items during a live auction held in the premium club space prior to the concert. Items will range from priceless experiences like a private, four-course dinner for 12 on the Fox Theatre stage to signed memorabilia.

Concert attendees will also be invited to participate in a live “Fund-A-Mission” driven by a Rocktioneer from the Fox’s stage. This live component will help raise money for FTI’s educational arm, “Fox in a Box,” a program that directly benefits students throughout Georgia. “Fox in a Box” teaches students about the communal history of the Fox Theatre and challenges them to think about the importance of communities banding together to protect what’s important to them. ‘Revival’s’ Fund-A-Mission sponsor and Official Bank of the Fox Theatre, Regions Bank, will match what the audience is able to raise in this interactive, five-minute fundraiser. Patrons are encouraged to set up their accounts in advance of the show in order to participate with ease the night of the event by again texting “REVIVAL”to 243725.
