Atlanta Concerts this week: Chris Thile, Willie Nelson, Khalid

“The Summer of Living Dangerously” tour finds Steely Dan on its first major outing since the Sept. 27 death of band co-founder and guitarist-bassist Walter Becker. At the tour kickoff in Charlotte last weekend, Steely co-captain Donald Fagen made reference to his departed friend during the encore, while leading the band through the Dan’s ‘70s classics. The Doobie Brothers, as always, can be counted on to provide their own parade of reliable hits, such as “Black Water” and “China Grove.”

The multi-instrumentalist who cut his teeth in Nickel Creek and gained more critical acclaim with the folk-bluegrass quintet The Punch Brothers has hosted the newer version of “A Prairie Home Companion” for two years. This will be the first live Atlanta broadcast of “Live From Here” and include guests Father John Misty, Neko Case, comic Rory Albanese and Madison Cunningham.

It will be a night of gritty and glass-like vocals when these contrasting singers take the stage. Nelson unveiled a new album, “Last Man Standing,” on April 27. Krauss, who played Chastain last fall with David Gray, released her most recent solo album, “Windy City,” last year.
