CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Hornets Sports & Entertainment announced Thursday that Spectrum Center will welcome back audiences at 100% capacity beginning in August.

“We’re thrilled to welcome back fans to our Spectrum Center events at 100% capacity,” said HSE Executive Vice President & Spectrum Center General Manager Donna Julian. “Live entertainment will play an important role as our community focuses on returning to normal from the pandemic. There is nothing quite like the live experience and the lifelong memories these events create. We pride ourselves on the diversity of events at Spectrum Center and we have a tremendous lineup already scheduled for the remainder of 2021, with even more to come in 2022.”
