Avett Brothers Reschedule Texas Shows This Week


The Avett Brothers issued the following statement on the band’s website today:

Avett Brothers
Hello Friends,

It is with great excitement that we announce the upcoming birth of my second child. This has been such a special time for our family and we are waiting with joyous anticipation for the arrival of our baby.

Unfortunately, we regret that the Avett Brothers must reschedule our upcoming shows in Houston, TX on April 14, Austin, TX on the 15th and Dallas, TX on the 16th, so that I may be by my wife's side as we welcome our new baby. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. I also apologize for the late notice, but we waited until the last possible minute to make this decision.

I would like to say a very heart-felt thank you to everyone for your well-wishes and kind words during this time. We will see you all very soon; please see below for rescheduled information.

In truth,
Scott Avett & The Avett Brothers


1. Houston at the Verizon Wireless Theatre has been rescheduled for Friday May 20!

2. Dallas at the Palladium Ballroom has been rescheduled for Saturday Oct. 15, AND, a second night has been added for Friday Oct. 14, with on-sale information coming in about a week!

3. Austin was particularly challenging because it is part of the 4-day Old Settler's Music Festival. In accordance with the policies of most festivals, there are no refunds. HOWEVER, by special arrangement, The Avett Brothers and Old Settler’s Music Festival have agreed to produce a return date on Sunday, Oct. 16 at a venue to be determined. Festival ticket holders have a choice of using their ticket for the festival OR using it for the rescheduled Avett Brothers performance on Oct. 16, BUT NOT BOTH. Exact venue information for the rescheduled show will be announced as soon as possible in the coming weeks.

Thank you for understanding the difficult nature of this situation.
