The Avett Brothers brought their fall tour to the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, SC, on Thursday evening for a Halloween performance that saw the band get into the holiday spirit with changing costumes throughout the night.
To kick off the show, Scott and Seth Avett rode in on fake skeleton-painted horses to lead the way on “Black Mountain Rag,” with Seth dressed as a skeleton and Scott and the band dressed as cowboys. As the night rolled on, through Avett staples like “Distraction #74,” “Paranoia in B-Flat Major,” “Murder in the City,” “Kick Drum Heart,” “Ain’t No Man” and “High Steppin’,” the band gradually all got into skeleton costumes, with a stage black light adding to the eerie effect. The set also included a cover of Jim Croce’s classic “Operator (That’s Not the Way It Feels),” and the evening rounded out with and encore of “Die Die Die,” “Morning Song” and “No Hard Feelings.”
Check out the full setlist below, along with fan-shot videos from the night. The Avett Brothers continue their tour in support of new album Closer Than Together tonight with a show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
