We haven’t even reached the halfway mark of summer yet, so there is still plenty of time to catch a concert of your choice here in the Queen City.

But when you are already dropping cash during your summer vacations, it’s nice to plan ahead and pick the two or three shows that you can budget for.

While some bands like Dave Matthews and big name country artists come here pretty much every year, for other acts — like Shania Twain and Mötley Crüe — this will (allegedly) be the last time you’ll see them in concert locally.

Find some heavy-hitting acts at Time Warner Cable Arena and PNC Music Pavilion and smaller, more intimate options at Uptown Amphitheatre at NC Music Factory, The Fillmore, The Evening Muse and others.
