SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (March 31, 2022)—The Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center at City Springs is adding a couple of well-known names before the final curtain drops on the 2021-2022 season. In addition to comedian Kevin Nealon’s previously announced show, singers Amy Grant and Peter Noone are heading to the Byers Theatre stage.
May 26 at 8 p.m.
Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map, becoming the first CCM artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the pop charts and the first to perform at the Grammy Awards. Since then, Grant has been strumming her way through a 30-plus year adventure as a singer-songwriter, author, television host and speaker. Married to country superstar Vince Gill, Grant resides with her family in Nashville, Tenn., and is widely known for her philanthropy and tireless involvement in local causes and charitable organizations. Her own organization, The Helping Hands Foundation, has afforded her the opportunity to identify needs around her and the resources to help meet them.
Herman’s Hermits with Peter Noone

Peter Noone, lead singer of the legendary pop band Herman’s Hermits, is considered one of rock ‘n’ roll’s finest and most versatile entertainers. Star of stage, screen and record, Noone’s performances deliver a broad palette of music, carried through a voice that defined a generation. With more than 60 million records sold, the audience will sing along with him to his Top 40 hits including: “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter,” “There’s a Kind of Hush,” “I’m Into Something Good” and more!
