How young is too young to take to an Avett Brothers show?

Postby Nydrew34 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 1:14 am

So my daughter loves the Avett Brothers music (as do I)... and as a birthday/Christmas gift, I bought us tickets to the New Years show. For us, we have a special bond over this music and I’m proud to take her to see them live! We have seats, and yes I would bring ear plugs. However, When I mention the show to folks.. it seems to spark up a debate as to how old someone should be to attend.
She’ll be 8 at Christmas..so i ask...what are your thoughts?

It goes until after 1 am; 8 seems too young to me. Even with seats, it's a pretty rowdy environment.

I used noise cancelling headphones for my two boys. My older son is more sensitive to loud sounds. Their first show was Kalamazoo and that is quite a different scene than a New Years show as I understand.

my 5 1/2 year old son has been to 4 shows, including 2 at Red Rocks in 2016. We take noise cancelling head phones for him and that is about it. Granted he hasn't made it all the way through a show without falling asleep, but he has had a great time at every show.

My daughter Raegan saw them this summer for her first show, shes 8. She had a blast and wants to make it a staple every time they come around. I did have to hold her the entire time because she couldn't see over the people in front of us, but it was a standing venue on a hillside so she didn't block anyone's view.

I saw something there with a baby strapped to their torso on New Years. Start 'em young, haha.

I just ordered tickets to the Chicago show with TBT for my daughters 7th birthday. Really hoping they play "A Fathers First Spring."
