Walnut Creek Amphitheatre (originally Hardee's Walnut Creek Amphitheatre and formerly Alltel Pavilion at Walnut Creek and Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion)[1][2] is an outdoor amphitheatre, in Raleigh, North Carolina, that specializes in hosting large concerts.

The amphitheatre is part of a 77-acre (310,000 m2) complex, located on the west bank of Walnut Creek, southeast of Raleigh, near the I-40/US 64/I-440 (Beltline) interchange.

It was built by the City of Raleigh, with private sector participation, at a cost of $13.5 million and opened on July 4, 1991, with The Connells as the inaugural act.

Seating capacity is about 6,847, of which about half are under cover; the open lawn can accommodate another 13,653.
