Avetts announce annual New Year's location

Uptown may be a little quieter on New Year's Eve this year. Earlier this week Widespread Panic, who have spent several recent years ringing in the New Year at Time Warner Cable Arena announced it will rock in 2016 in closer to home in Atlanta. Today the Avett Brothers' announced that its annual New Year's Eve gig will return to Greensboro Coliseum Complex. The group last celebrated the New Year there in 2013.

Tickets for the Dec. 31, 2015 show go on sale Friday, Sept. 18 at 10 a.m. via, by phone, and at the Greensboro Coliseum box office.

The Avetts' sold out Carolina NYE shows date back to its early days at Neighborhood Theatre. The group moved on to Belk Theater and most recently to TWC Arena, but has alternated between different NC cities since its rise in popularity.

The band is reportedly working on its ninth studio album with Rick Rubin.
