Due to popular demand, THE AVETT BROTHERS have added a THIRD show to their Atlanta stop at the Fox Theatre, which will take place on Thursday, June 8 at 8 p.m. Fans may purchase tickets for the third show starting on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. Tickets are priced $59.50, $49.50 and $39.50, plus applicable fees, and may be purchased at FoxTheatre.org, by calling 855-285-8499, or at the Fox Theatre Ticket Office. Although seating is limited, tickets are still available for the June 9 and June 10 shows.

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 StonePasteNew York TimesLos 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 PeopleUSA 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, followed by a string of sold out shows.

And most recently in June 2016, the Avetts released their 9th studio album, True Sadness.  A review from Entertainment Weekly praises the release for featuring the band’s trademark “twangy guitars, feel-good harmonies, and strings courtesy of cellist Joe Kwon,” along with some new sounds like the “galloping synth beat and tempo shifts” in the track “You Are Mine.”

“Such experimentation is short-lived, but it’s a shot of energy that keeps the rest of the album from dragging,” EW says.

True Sadness has been nominated for 2 Grammy Awards: Best Americana Album and Best Americana Roots Performance for “Ain’t No Man”. Additionally, the album was the most played album on Americana radio stations in 2016, according to the Americana Music Association.
