Live Nation has been hired to book 15 to 20 music and comedy acts a year at the 5,000-capacity amphitheatre under construction in Raleigh, N.C., that is scheduled to open in June.

The Raleigh City Council voted unanimously April 20 to approve the agreement that establishes LN as primary booking agency through 2014, according to the Triangle Business Journal.

The Backstreet Boys are set to open the venue June 6. Concerts on the books through mid-September include “The Honda Civic Tour,” Slightly Stoopid, O.A.R., STS9 and The Black Crowes.
