CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte is becoming known as a must-stop city for performers.

Big name acts like Beyonce and Madonna make one stop in the Carolinas, and that's in Charlotte.

And this year, Charlotte is playing host to twice as many big names as last year, including Tim McGraw, Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and more.

Folks at Time Warner Arena say performers are realizing they can sell out a crowd here.

The director of Communications for the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority said, The star power coming to our city s venues this summer is just one of many elements that adds to Charlotte s destination appeal. These acts encourage visitors and residents alike to explore the city, experience our dining and nightlife and help contribute to overall room night demand. In addition, they enhance our destination profile and establish us among other major cities in our competitive set.
