Grammy-award winner and Athens native Brittany Howard will be returning to her home state for a concert in September.

Howard, who first gained fame as the lead singer for Alabama Shakes, will be in concert at the Alabama Theater on September 2. Tickets for the 8 p.m. concert are on sale at Ticketmaster starting at $42 plus service charges.

Becca Mancari will open the show. Mancari is no stranger to Howard; she performs with Howard in the Bermuda Triangle Band.

Howard picked up another Grammy earlier in 2021 for her debut solo album “Jamie.”

She won Best Rock Song for “Stay High,” and was nominated in four other categories.

The stop in Birmingham is the only Alabama date on her tour as of early June, which includes stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago; Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee; the Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas; Outside Lands in San Francisco; and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
