The Avett Brothers consist of Scott and Seth Avett, Bob Crawford and Joe Kwon. This past year has been historical for the group after releasing their critically acclaimed documentary May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers, which was co-directed by Judd Apatow (Doc & Darryl, Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Michael Bonfiglio (My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Jerry Before Seinfeld).
The film followed the band as they wrote their GrammyÒ nominated album True Sadness (2016), which achieved the group’s highest career debut to date and dominated multiple charts, arriving at #1 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart, #1 Top Rock Albums Chart, #1 on the Digital Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart. The album was also nominated for Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Performance for “Ain’t No Man” at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
The Avett Brothers last played the Walmart AMP in September 2014.
