The Atlanta event took place at State Farm Arena, with performances from Black Eyed Peas, Big Time Rush, Monsta X, Bazzi, Dixie D’Amelio, Tai Verdes and Tate McRae.
iHeartRadio’s Jingle Ball will continue its run around the US in Miami on December 19, having already stopped in Los Angeles, New York, Boston and more.
Earlier this month, Megan cancelled a scheduled show in Houston out of respect for the victims of the Astroworld tragedy.
The incident, which occurred in the rapper’s hometown on November 5 during Travis Scott‘s headline set, resulted in 300 injured victims and ten who lost their lives.
