Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has changed the venue of Friday’s Charlotte rally to the Charlotte Convention Center.

It had been scheduled for PNC Pavilion.

Spokesman Kirk Bell said the change came after a 2 p.m. Greensboro rally was added to the candidate’s schedule.

The Charlotte rally begins at 7. Doors open at 4 p.m. Tickets can be obtained here.

Trump last appeared at the convention center on Aug. 18.

Friday’s rally comes during a week in which Trump has been under fire for claims of sexual harassment by several women and a week after the release of a 2005 video tape in which he made lewd comments about women.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton argued over leaked tapes and deleted emails at the second presidential debate in St. Louis on Sunday night, but somewhat astonishingly managed to find something nice to say about one another in the end.
