Avett Brothers offer disappointed Atlanta fans a free show

You can’t accuse the Avett Brothers of not caring about its fans.

After hearing from many disappointed concertgoers who were unable to get into its free show last week at The Tabernacle, the band has posted an apology on its Facebook page, inviting those who were turned away in Atlanta to its Oct. 7 show in Sevierville, Tenn., free of charge.

The stipulation is that you have to prove you were in line at The Tabernacle show and did not get in.

Check out the band’s Facebook post for details.

I can promise you two things. Not 1 single Avett Brothers fan held this against them and The Avett brothers are the standards bands should be measured against.

The Avetts are incredibly talented and humble – powerful combination. Their relationship with their fans is authentic and valued – their actions regarding the Atlanta concert speak loudly.

Sing on Brothers!

Sounds like proof will be an unscanned ticket. The line wrapped multiple times around the Tabernacle last Fri, sucked, didn’t get in but that’s AT&T/Samsung’s fault, not Avetts. Guessing AT&T/Samsung just wanted as much “free” data as possible, so sold multiple(s) of tix they should’ve – priority access was a joke. Hope Avetts head back to ATL soon, happy to pay!

Class move. Saw these guys at their post-Braves game show earlier this year and they brought their A-game, even in the blazing heat.

I was fortunate to make it in to the Tabernacle, and the Avetts were excellent as usual. However, the sound quality at the Tabernacle, at least in the balcony, was the worst of the 4 Avett Bros. shows I have seen. I hope they don’t play the Tabernacle again when they come back to Atlanta, though it was cool to be so close to the stage. The Avetts are awesome and I am not surprised that they wanted to make it up to all those who did not make it in–it’s just not their style to give out tickets to a bunch of people, with the expectation that they will actually get into the show, and then leave them hanging. If Samsung/AT&T intended for the tickets to only get you in if you were part of the first X-number of people in line, they should have made that clear. I think they were definitely just mining for data. I will gladly pay for Avett Bros. tix that guarantee me a seat at the show and that don’t require me to listen to some super-loud, semi-obnoxious “Hype-man” (whatever that is) blab on about how great a phone is. That said, I appreciate the gesture of the Avetts in trying to do something nice for their fans by giving a free concert.

The Avett Brothers are the band that everyone at work can agree on!
