Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man: Nowitzki takes stage at country concert

As the Oklahoma City Thunder was in the process of evening their seven-game Western Conference finals series with the San Antonio Spurs at two games apiece, Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki had other things on his mind.


The seven-footer spent his time attending The Avett Brothers concert Saturday night in Grand Prairie. And when you’re Dirk Nowitzki, you get special privileges.


While the indie rock band played a song called “I Killed Sally’s Lover”, Nowitzki climbed up on stage, banged a tambourine and jumped around a little bit.

Nowitzki gets on stage around the two-minute mark.

Nowitzki took to Twitter after the show and let everyone know about his night.

“Had a blast at the avett bros concert.  Great show.  Great band,” Nowitzki tweeted from his account, @Swish41.

“Rhythm is in my blood.”

The Avett Brothers are best known for their hit “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise,” which they performed live during the 53rd Grammy Awards in 2011.
