The energy band structures of the warm dense plasmas with micro-structures inherited from single-walled carbon nanotubes are studied in detail by using the symmetry-adapted tight-binding model with the electron-ion core Coulomb interactions as the plasma effects. It is found that both the symmetry and the degeneracy of the calculated bands normal for the solid micro-structured targets may be destroyed by the electron-ion core Coulomb interactions. Moreover, the calculated Fermi levels of the micro-structured warm dense plasmas are about 1 eV higher than those of the original carbon nanotubes, while the transition energies of the warm dense plasmas are almost always smaller than those for the original carbon nanotubes.
