Charlotte Motor Speedway will feature the Avett Brothers’ return to live performance, with the band scheduling a live show for August 29th, announced this week. The group will perform at the venue, with fans able to watch from in or around their vehicles, as well as watch on the speedway’s video board.
The natives of Concord, which is just outside of Charlotte, announced the concert with a YouTube video, featuring Seth and Scott Avett and a number of children who appear to be taking a break from fishing.
