ATLANTA - The Atlanta Braves announced today that pop star Charli XCX and multi-platinum group Boyz II Men will be the first two concerts of the 2015 Summer Concert Series presented by Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines. Charli XCX will take the stage on Wednesday, June 10, after the Braves take on the San Diego Padres. Ten days later, Boyz II Men will perform following the June 20 matchup against the New York Mets. Each postgame performance of the Braves Summer Concert Series presented by Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines is free with a paid game ticket.
Boyz II Men broke onto the music scene in the mid-90s and redefined R&B as they produced hits that appealed to fans of all generations. Over the last two decades, the band has received countless accolades and awards, including four Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, three Billboard Awards and nine Soul Train Awards. The band has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide, making them the Best-Selling R&B Group of all time. Boyz II Men is best known for their hits "End of the Road," "I'll Make Love to You," and "One Sweet Day." To this day, "One Sweet Day" holds the Billboard 100 Record for most weeks at number one.
The two-time Grammy nominated artist, Charli XCX, gained instant fame last fall when she released her single "Fancy" along with Iggy Azalea. "Fancy" has captured 470 million YouTube views and sat atop the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks, easily making it one of the biggest hits of 2014. Following "Fancy," the performer and songwriter released "Boom Clap" which also climbed to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Her sophomore album "Sucker" debuted on December 15, 2014, and clocked in as the sixth most downloaded album on iTunes that week. To top off her year, Charli XCX performed at the MTV Video Music Awards, American Music Awards and on Saturday Night Live.
