Hey all. I am going to the RBC Center tonight for a concert. It starts at 7:30. If I leave the Brier Creek area around 6pm, will I have enough time to get in, find parking and get to my seats?? I'm from VA so it takes about 2 hours to get to any concert up there.
Thanks!!!

Not sure about concerts but I've been to plenty of hockey games there including sell-outs and that is more than enough time. My guess is you'll be at your seats with beer in hand at 6:45!

I've found the traffic flows into and out of the RBC Center pretty well. Some delays, but nothing too terrible.

I think that should be about right!

I agree considering you are already on the West Side of Raleigh.

Have a great time!

Keep in mind that that is what the people trying to see Billy Joel last year thought too. Not saying there is a likely chance at that happening again, but if I recall correctly, that night was a disaster for many.

I agree - takes us about 45 minutes from BC to the RBC - nice and easy!

We hit serious traffic this past winter trying to get to the Celine Dion concert. I think it depends on what the show is. We got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic merging onto 440 trying to get to RBC. Then, police diverted all traffic past the exit to Blue Ridge Rd....what chaos. We turned around and went home! Lucky they were free tickets or I would have been ticked off!

How was the concert? I love Keith Urban and really wanted to go but I just saw Brad Paisley a few weeks ago so figured I'd save Keith for next year (he better come back next year!)
