The Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, is a versatile venue that’s hosted everything from NCAA basketball tournaments and the Democratic National Convention to bull riding and standup comedy. It’s also been the home of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets
since it opened in 2005, and it’s a popular stop for musicians—notable concerts at the center have included Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Kanye West, Nickelback and Van Halen.
Situated in central Charlotte not far from the Carolina Panthers’ Bank of America Stadium, the Spectrum Center is easily accessible off of Interstate 277. With thousands of parking spaces available within a 15-minute walk of the Spectrum Center, driving to the stadium is a cinch. Fans can also park at one of the nearby park-and-ride lots or take the Lynx train to Trade Street Station. Be sure to leave large banners or flags, noisemakers, Frisbees, poles, tripods, selfie sticks and strollers at home.
The Uptown neighborhood of Charlotte is just a short walk from the center and features a variety of restaurants, from chic bistros to kid-friendly steakhouses. Before Hornets games, you’ll find every bar in the surrounding area filled with fans on their way to the stadium. Dozens of hotels are also nearby, ranging from budget to upscale accommodations. Local attractions include the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art and the Charlotte Convention Center.
