Raleigh's PNC Arena has three large concert dates on tap for 2013, although only one of them is firmed up enough to have an actual on-sale date. That's blues-rock demigod Eric Clapton, scheduled to play April 3 (a return visit after his March 2010 PNC show). Tickets go on sale Dec. 7.
The other two dates are in a somewhat more nebulous state. Country-pop superstar Taylor Swift's tour schedule came out a few weeks back amid much hoopla, and it included Raleigh on Sept. 13 with the venue listed as "TBA" -- which it still is, according to Pollstar. There's nothing definite from arena management yet about that.
Finally, just announced is Bon Jovi's "Because We Can" tour with 33 dates on the itinerary, including Charlotte on March 5. Raleigh is listed as a city to be scheduled later, "additional details to come." Since Bon Jovi and Swift are playing arenas elsewhere, PNC should be the likely Raleigh venue for both.
