A couple of days ago The Avett Brothers announced a handful of upcoming shows, three of which are slated for the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC. North Carolina fans cried “Anarchy in the NC!”, demanding the band stop through the Old North State on their way South. Then came the announcement that another BIG announcement would happen this week. Rumors started flying in the Raleigh area, fans hoping it would be the Capital City that grabbed the brothers and crew.
Some thought they might play the Downtown New Raleigh Bud Light Boutique Cree Convention Center Walt Amphitheater. Others thought that since the dates of the upcoming shows were so close to Hopscotch (their tour seemingly ending on 9/10) that the band might play a show during The Hopscotch Music Festival.
Nope, neither. The downtown amphitheater only holds 5,500 and that’s a little too small for them now. The brothers are going big this time, they will be playing their very first headlining gig at the Time Warner Pavilion on October 8th. No wonder they aren’t playing Austin City Limits this year. No openers or any ticket information is available yet.
