The newly built Raleigh Amphitheater and Festival Site will open its doors (so to speak) in early June, and there are a lot of things to look forward to from then on.  The amphitheater is already host to a large line-up of concerts and events, including the Backstreet Boys, Paramore and Chelsea Handler.

This venue can seat 5,500 people, so you’ll be surrounded by thousands of other fans (but not too many) while enjoying the open air of the amphitheater.  While waiting for your entertainment to come on stage, you can enjoy the entertaining light display on the Cree Shimmer Wall at the nearby Raleigh Convention Center.  What better way to enjoy your favorite band or performer than while also taking in the scenic downtown Raleigh skyline?

For a complete list of the current line-up of performances, visit this site.  Tickets can be purchased online or in person at the Progress Energy Center Box Office or the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion Box Office.  Get your tickets now and enjoy this brand-new amphitheater with your friends and family!
