Your guide to spring’s hottest concerts: 50+ shows coming to Charlotte today through June


The Queen City is going to be invaded with all of your favorite artists and bands this spring. And even though Charlotte has lost great venues like Amos’ Southend and Tremont Music Hall over the past couple of years, we can still enjoy a bunch of awesome shows and outdoor festivals in the sunny weather.

With big acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Weekend coming, and music festivals like Tuck Fest also on the schedule, it’s time to start planning which shows you want to see before they sell out.

So let’s not wait any further — Here’s our Spring Concert Guide below.
