Outdoor shows keep rolling out in the area and the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh just added a new show to their concert schedule. Folk/country troubadour and former UNCG student Emmylou Harris will play the museum's outdoor amphitheatre on June 25 (according to Pollstar). Harris released Songbird: Rare and Forgotten Gems in September, a 4-disc set of some of her favorite songs from 1970 to 2006.
Here's the North Carolina Museum of Art's concert schedule so far:
June 21 - Cindy Cashdollar, Elana James
June 25 - Emmylou Harris
July 12 - BeauSoleil Avec Michael Doucet
August 1 - Carolina Chocolate Drops
In other news, Journey, Heart and Cheap Trick have joined forces for a summer tour that will stop by the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion at Walnut Creek on August 10. Also, Avril Lavigne will join up with Jonas Brothers at the Creek on July 30.
We still have no word yet on R.E.M. tickets, though tickets for their European tour are on sale up to three months after the Raleigh date. Go figure.
