— The May 31 Sesame Street Live "When Elmo Grows Up" show has been canceled because the Carolina Hurricanes might need the RBC Center that day for a possible Game 6 of their NHL Eastern Conference Finals series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Any tickets for the canceled performance may be refunded or exchanged at the point of purchase. Tickets may be exchanged for "When Elmo Grows Up" shows on May 28, 29 or 30, officials said.

Anyone with questions or concerns is asked to call the RBC Center Box Office at 919-861-2323.

    colliedave - there are still some of us wolfpackers who prefer the more intimate and rowdier Reynolds. But, I digress.

    Elmo will be OK with the cancellation of one show. Maybe the Canes can license a "surprise" appearance at game 6 by Elmo.

    Actually, The RBC Center was in the works long before the Hurricanes even thought about moving to NC. State began working to replace Reynolds as early as 1983. Changes were made to the building to accommodate the Hurricanes but it still would have been built without the 'Canes coming to town.

    Iceman,

    If the Canes are playing in game 6 of the ECF, take your son to the game. He will see a great sporting event and may become hooked on hockey. Pens fans aren't as course as the notorious Buffaslug fans do you will not subject him on the negative aspects of being a fan.

    So go to one of the other shows, there is one on the 29th and 30th (both weekend nights). And I agree, Elmo lame, CANES rock.

    It is because of the Canes we have the RBC Center, w/o the building the Pack would still be playing in Reynolds

    I would love to see how many tours of Elmo would be visiting Raleigh were it not for the 'Canes making the RBC Center possible. GO CANES!!!
