CONCORD, NC (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) -- The Avett Brothers' sold-out Red Rocks show on July 9th will be broadcast live via satellite to the band’s hometown of Concord, NC on the planets largest HDTV screen.
AEG Network LIVE is responsible for producing and shooting the event and delivering it via iClips to Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“The speedway has been a hometown landmark for us our whole lives and we're proud to have an opportunity for our music to echo through that historical infield,” said Seth Avett. “For us, performing at Red Rocks and airing live in Concord is about the most ideal situation for being in two amazing places at once.”
The Avett Brothers front men, Scott and Seth Avett, who grew up on their father’s farm in Concord, grew their fan base throughout the region with energetic shows, which has become the band’s trademark. In February the Avett Brothers performed at the 53rd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles alongside Bob Dylan.
