The Avett Brothers announced last night that they will be having a big album release party on their home turf. They will play the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte on August 8, three days before their new album I and Love and You is released. Fans at the show will have a chance to buy the album at the show before the rest of the country.
Here's the kicker for you die-hard Avett fans. Pre-sale tickets for the show go on sale today, April 25 at 10 am via the band's ticketing site. 10% of the tickets will be available via the pre-sale and the band says that they're the "best seats in the house."
[UPDATE: The first round of pre-sale tickets are gone, but the general on sale date will start at 10 am May 1 here. Also, there will be another pre-sale starting on April 30 at 10 am here. Tickets are $25 or $30.]
Can The Avetts hold their own in an 11,000 seat venue? It's hard to believe these guys were playing the Lincon Theatre just a few years ago.
The band are going to announce more August dates on Monday and we'll bring you those along with general on sale info for the Charlotte show.
