The Atlanta Hawks and legendary singer Janet Jackson found themselves in a bit of conundrum following the team’s victory against the Celtics. Jackson was scheduled to perform on the second night of her “Together Again” tour at State Farm Arena in Atlanta on April 27. 

However, with the Hawks victory, the team is now also scheduled to play game 6 of the NBA Playoffs on the same date. Reps at State Farm Arena revealed that Jackson’s concert will now take place on April 28. 

“This is such an exciting time for the city with world-class events between Hawks Playoff basketball, Janet Jackson and Taylor Swift in downtown Atlanta. We are committed to ensuring all of our guests have a great night out at each of our events and are working with our partners to provide the most seamless experience possible,” State Farm Arena Executive Vice President of Arena Programming Trey Feazell.
