Avett Brothers Live Simulcast is Today!
Charlotte Motor Speedway will add another fabulous first to its legacy on Saturday 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.
Here’s what fans coming to the event need to know:
