    You might find a family owned business handling the parking.

    That's not technically true. The arena cost $158 million to build, $60 million of which came from the Hurricanes and the state of NC paid $18 million. The rest came from the hotel and restaurant tax, so I'm sure plenty of tax dollars were involved there.

    I'm more outraged at the price of parking. $15 for a hockey game and $20 for a concert. Give me a break.

    You must not have seen comments on the NCAA basketball story suggesting that use of a publicly funded arena such as the PNC was inappropriate. Just asking if a rock concert is a more appropriate use.

    None.....but you were not really asking, correct?

    How many tax dollars went to build the PNC so Bruce Springsteen could make money off this concert?

    This will the the first Bruce concert I've seen since Clarence died. Looking forward to hearing Jake Clemons, Clarence's nephew play.
