We have some late-day concert news to report. First and foremost, Tom Petty's tour has been rerouted -- pushing back his May 6 Raleigh date at Das Shed, which was to have been the opening date on his U.S. tour. But Petty's Raleigh show has been rescheduled to Sept. 18. If you've already bought tickets, those will be honored; or refunds are available from point of purchase starting Tuesday.
Also, a few more shows have been announced for the still-under-construction Raleigh Amphitheatre: former teen idols Backstreet Boys on June 6 (on sale April 24), and space-age jam band Sound Tribe Sector 9 on Aug. 25 (on sale Wednesday).
