Here’s who’s playing at Charlotte’s largest amphitheaters this season

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte’s largest amphitheaters, PNC Music Pavilion and the recently renamed Skyla Credit Union Amphitheatre (formerly Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre) are open for the 2023 season. The lineups for the venues include country favorites such as Shania Twain, Eric Church and Willie Nelson, rocks legends Peter Frampton and Foreigner, as well as popular artists such as Janet Jackson, Snoop Dogg and Maggie Rogers.

We’ve listed the schedule for each venue below, as well as some useful information you need to know before you head out to catch a show.

All events will use mobile entry, which means that your mobile device will be used to get into the show. Tickets will not be emailed or available for printing.

Pro tips: If you’ve purchased tickets for a group and some people in the group plan to come separately, you can transfer the tickets directly by using the Live Nation app. Also, before entering the gate, increase the brightness of your phone screen to help with scanning. Click here for more information on mobile ticketing.

You can also keep your cash at home. All points of sale at the venues will be cashless — only credit and debit cards or mobile pay (Apple Pay and Google Pay) will be accepted.

Only clear bags no larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″ or unclear bags no larger than 6″ x 9″ are allowed in the venues. This applies to all bags including totes, clutches, and fanny packs.

Another pro tip: Concertgoers are allowed to bring in one factory-sealed bottle of water up to one gallon in size. Aluminum bottles and refillable plastic water bottles are permitted but must be empty when entering the venue. Complimentary water fill stations are located at PNC Music Pavilion at Guest Services inside Gate 2. Guests are also permitted to bring food in a clear plastic bag up to one gallon in size. These policies are subject to change based on artist requests or safety considerations.

Parking at PNC Music Pavilion is free. Parking at Skyla Credit Union Amphitheatre costs $20 for most shows.

Some artists may require additional safety protocols, which are subject to change, so check the specific event page closer to the event date for the latest information. Ticketholders will also receive direct emails with important information leading up to the show.
