Band of Horses adds second show at Fillmore

Band of Horses is extending its stay in Charlotte in  May. The Fillmore announced Friday that the Carolina roots rock favorites would be adding a second date to its May 10th concert at the NC Music Factory venue. Tickets for an additional May 11 concert went on sale this morning at 10 a.m. Click here for tickets, which are $37.50. 

An additional date was added given how well tickets for the first show were selling. Band of Horses was last in Charlotte opening for My Morning Jacket at The Fillmore's neighboring Time Warner Cable Outdoor Amphitheatre in August, 2012. The group played The Fillmore in August 2011 after its tour with fellow Southern rockers Kings of Leon came to an abrupt halt when the headliner cancelled the remainder of the tour. Instead of allowing fans to be completely bummed, Band of Horses (pictured above in 2011) quickly scheduled a headlining show at The Fillmore and it turned out to be a very special much more intimate show for BOH fans.  

This marks the first time The Fillmore has scheduled a two-night engagement. So if you don't get enough Horses the first night, you can make it a double.
