In 2007 & 2008 the group sold out the War Memorial Auditorium and in 2011 they sold out White Oak Amphitheatre, selling nearly 8,000 tickets for an all-time venue record. Finally, in 2013 at their last Greensboro Coliseum NYE show they sold over 13,000 tickets and performed an unforgettable show!

Tickets for this year’s New Year’s Eve show go on sale September 18th at 10am and can be found at, all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000 and the Greensboro Coliseum box office.

THE AVETT BROTHERS are also in the process of working with Rick Rubin on their ninth full-length studio album.

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. A string of sold out shows followed as the boys continue to dream up their next step.
