Who's coming to Time Warner Cable Arena?

Posted By on Tue, Jan 27, 2015 at 10:05 AM

The folks at Time Warner Cable Arena say a "major concert announcement" will be released this Thursday. A press conference is scheduled, with Hornets Sports & Entertainment President and COO Fred Whitfield sharing the news, and Wilson Howard of Live Nation expected to attend.

The last time a concert announcement required a press conference this big was for Paul McCartney. So, who do you think is coming to Charlotte?

Here are a few possibilities:
* Katy Perry will perform at the Super Bowl on Sunday. It only makes sense that a large national tour will follow.
* Billy Joel will headline Bonnaroo this summer. Could a national tour be planned around that?
* Metallica is expected to tour this year, but we don't think it would require a press conference.
* Kanye West — only because Kanye West would demand a press conference.
* Garth Brooks has been making the rounds recently to much fanfare, but it wouldn't be a "surprise."
* AC/DC is expected to tour this year.
* Would the Rolling Stones go back out on tour?
* Prince could hit the road in support of those two albums he released late last year.
* The Who has already announced its tour and is heading to Raleigh.
* Would U2 add dates to its 2015 tour schedule?
* We can't imagine the Foo Fighters would ask for a press conference.
