Avett Brothers Concert to be Simulcast On World’s Largest HDTV at CMS

123
Charlotte Motor Speedway will add another fabulous first to its legacy on July 9 when the world’s largest HDTV airs a live simulcast concert by American Recordings artists, the Avett Brothers, from the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.

The simulcast will give local Avett Brothers fans the opportunity to
view the live show on Charlotte Motor Speedway’s massive 80-foot-by-200-foot
HDTV. The speedway will also supply concert-grade speakers for the event, to
turn the infield area in front of the HDTV into a one-of-a-kind concert
venue.

“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, quickly grew their fan base throughout the
Charlotte, N.C., region with memorable energetic shows, which has become the
band’s trademark.

The Avetts’ popularity skyrocketed on the heels on their major label
debut, the 2009 album “I and Love and You.” Recently, the band has become
accustomed to performing sold-out concerts and in February they performed at
the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles alongside Bob Dylan.

“We are so fortunate to travel and play the many places we do,” said
Scott Avett. “To have an opportunity to share that with our supportive home
town in a setting where great men like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt and
David Pearson competed adds to the sense of pride that we feel to be a part
of the Charlotte community and this event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.”

“This is going to be an unbelievable event,” said Marcus Smith,
president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “This is
something that would have never been possible without the world’s largest
HDTV. But, now we’re going to simulcast a live sold-out show from one of the
most famous concert venues in the world, featuring our home-town boys, the
Avett Brothers, to their loyal fan following here in Charlotte. It’s going
to be awesome!”

Speedway gates for the live simulcast on Saturday, July 9, will open
at 8 p.m. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are scheduled to begin at 9:30
p.m. with the Avett Brothers scheduled to perform around 11 p.m.
