CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WCNC) -- The Avett Brothers posted a statement on their Facebook page on Monday in reference to a disco ball that fell on stage between acts at their New Year's Eve show in Charlotte.

The large disco ball fell onto the stage at Time Warner Arena on Tuesday night between the opening act, Shovels & Rope, and the Avett Brothers themselves.

No one was injured in the incident, and the band was able to continue the show.

On Monday, the Avett Brothers posted a statement to their Facebook page: 

We would like to take a moment to address the mirror ball incident that took place at Charlotte's Time Warner Cable Arena during our New Year's Eve show.

First and foremost, we are so thankful that no one was injured; safety is paramount for our fans, stagehands, and crew members. Please know that we would never put anyone in harm's way - no mirror balls were hung above the audience for this very reason. We took every precaution, double and triple checking everything that we could. Our production staff has hired independent engineering firm Clark-Reder Engineering to investigate this incident extensively and we will keep you informed of the results. Thank you for your patience as we strive to get as many answers as possible.
