Perry Julien: Yacht Rock Revue
The year marked the return of live concerts, and photographer Perry Julien was there to capture moments such as the Yacht Club Revue (above) at Chastain Park.

Year In Review: The best of Perry Julien’s exclusive concert photos from 2021

The concert industry was especially devastated by the pandemic, with live shows completely shut down most of last year and through the spring of 2021. The sheer volume of bands going back on the road created a considerable crunch in the T-shirt business — every group wanted fresh merchandise for summer tours . . . at exactly the same moment.

Music Midtown and the Shaky Knees Festival returned in 2021, and concert venues and clubs across the city opened their doors once again for live music, most with vaccine and/or testing mandates to help prevent the spread of Covid.

Noted photographer Perry Julien chronicled the return to the stages with exclusive concert photos for ArtsATL that captured the excitement of the moment and celebrated the unique connection between musician and audience.

His roster of photos includes shows by Dead and Company, Blackberry Smoke, The Black Crowes, 21 Savage and much more. Scroll down to see his concert photo gallery for 2021.
