Some years back, a concert promoter I know called North Carolina "venue nirvana" -- and in terms of raw number of seats, it certainly is. Between all the outdoor amphitheaters, indoor arenas, mid-sized theaters and on-campus halls we've got around here, the Triangle might have as many concert seats per capita as any place in America.
