Charlie Puth – July 24th, 2018:  BB&T Pavilion

Charlie Puth might be one of the biggest male pop stars around right now, but you’d never guess that by talking to him.  Nevertheless, the humble singer draws quite a crowd, and this summer at the BB&T Pavilion will be no exception.  His sophomore album, Voicenotes, is expected May 11th, and this tour will be a great follow-up after it drops.  Hailee Steinfeld will open The Voicenotes Tour, and there is even an upgrade package featuring exclusive access to a pre-show performance with Charlie and exclusive VIP merchandise.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity!

The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore Tour – July 25th, 2018 : BB&T Pavilion

Perhaps you’ve already seen Kesha and Macklmore collaborate on “Good Old Days”, off of Macklemore’s album Gemini.  If you have, you probably already have your tickets.  That’s how good it is.  If you HAVEN’T heard the song or seen the video yet, your first order of business is to do so.  THEN you’ll want to grab your tickets for the tour, at the BB&T Pavilion this summer.  We guarantee you won’t want to miss it.
