The Avett Brothers with special guest Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors

December 31, 2019

The Avett Brothers will play Greensboro Coliseum on New Year’s Eve (Dec. 31).

In June 2016, the Avetts released their 9th studio album, True Sadness.  The Rick Rubin produced album debuted 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. A review from Entertainment Weekly praises the release for featuring the band’s trademark “twangy guitars, feel-good harmonies, and strings courtesy of cellist Joe Kwon,” along with some new sounds like the “galloping synth beat and tempo shifts” in the track “You Are Mine.” “Such experimentation is short-lived, but it’s a shot of energy that keeps the rest of the album from dragging,” EW says. True Sadness was nominated for 2 Grammy Awards: Best Americana Album and Best Americana Roots Performance for “Ain’t No Man”. Additionally, the album was the most played album on Americana radio stations in 2016, according to the Americana Music Association, while “Ain’t No Man” held the #1 slot at AAA radio for several weeks. On June 13th, The Avett Brothers released their new video for “High Steppin,” the first song released from their upcoming studio album, Closer Than Together, to be released on October 4.

Cirque du soleil

Cirque Du Soleil Presents OVO

April 2-5, 2020

Cirque du Soleil returns to Greensboro in April 2020 with the show OVO, after having toured in arenas all over North America, Europe and South America since April 2016. OVO has performed in the United States in the past but is now back by popular demand!

The production will be presented at Greensboro Coliseum from April 2 to April 5 for 6 performances.

Thrilling more than 6 million people worldwide since the show premiered in Montreal in 2009 as a Big Top show, OVO embarked on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but in arenas in 2016, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town. Since 2016, the arena tour has traveled in 22 different countries, including Germany, Brazil, United States, Canada, Argentina, France, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom and Chile.

About the show

OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.
