Pop group Backstreet Boys has been announced as the first Live Nation act to perform at the still-under-construction Raleigh Amphitheatre and Festival Site, which is slated to open in early June.
The group, consisting of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and A.J. McLean, will perform on June 6 as part of their U.S. tour in support of their recent album “This Is Us”.
Tickets for the concert go on sale April 24. Live Nation will also be offering a special 4-pack ticket deal for the concert, a perfect way to grab a few of the girls together to reminisce about growing up in the 90′s.
Venue officials say booking the Backstreet Boys was based on “routing circumstances of when they’ll be in the area that lined up with when the venue will be ready.”
“We know it’s probably too early for the public to make a judgment on our schedule, but we feel that the public will be pleasantly surprised with the final summer schedule,” said Taylor Traversari, a spokesperson for the Amphitheatre.
The 5,000-seat, open-air amphitheatre is being constructed across from the Raleigh Convention Center and according to an agreement with the City of Raleigh, Live Nation will be scheduling 50 to 20 concerts per season for the venue.
