Bluegrass stars The Avett Brothers' show scheduled for Thursday at Verizon Wireless Theater has been rescheduled to Friday, May 20, due to the birth of banjoist/singer Scott Avett's
first second child.
The group, which performed on this year's Grammys alongside Bob Dylan and fellow up-and-comers Mumford & Sons, also postponed weekend appearances in Dallas and at the Old Settlers' Music Festival near Austin to October.
All tickets for Thursday's show will be honored at the new date. See livenation.com for more information.
That is all.
