It is with our sincerest apologies that I write to inform you of the following: Scott has the flu. We would love nothing more than to be in Louisiana and Texas over these next few days to play and sing with you, but he is down for the count. We know a lot of you have made great efforts to be at these shows, and we are truly sympathetic to any inconvenience this unfortunate change of plans causes you. We will do our very best to reschedule these performances and will give you further details as soon as we can. Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored for the new dates. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled shows, refunds will be issued at point of purchase. If you purchased through Songkick during our fan pre-sale, you will receive an email with further information.
During 2009, THE AVETT BROTHERS made mainstream waves with their lauded major label debut, I and Love and You. It landed at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and garnered unanimous critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Paste, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Time, who even dubbed it one of Top 10 albums of the year.
2012 saw The Carpenter hit #4 on the Billboard Top 200—their highest bow to date—while People, USA Today, and American Songwriter lauded the album. The group graced the stage of Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! twice in merely a few months' time. During the second performance, they invited the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra along to pay homage to Brooklyn with "I and Love and You" as personally requested by Mr. Kimmel.
Their eighth studio album, Magpie and the Dandelion, went on to debut at #5 on the Billboard Top 200, while they performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman as well as joining legendary Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell for a rapturous Pearl Jam tribute on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
2015 saw them support The Rolling Stones for the first time at the Zip Code Tour in Raleigh. A string of sold out shows followed as the boys continue to dream up their next step.
THE AVETT BROTHERS’ newest album, True Sadness [American Recordings/Republic Records], achieved the group’s highest career debut to date and dominated multiple charts. The Rick Rubin produced album arrived at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, #1 Top Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart.
