MORE EXCELLENT CONCERTS ADDED TO RED ROCKS SUMMER 2016!!

Though, I pride myself on constantly checking for additions to the summer 2016 concert season, somehow Red Rocks snuck a few impressive concerts by me over the last couple of days. The recent additions include, Rebelution, Lettuce, Steely Dan, Gramatik, Galactic and Boombox.

Reggae ambassadors, Rebelution will be bringing positive vibrations to Red Rocks on June 3. They will be joined by The Green, J Boog and Through The Roots.  The tickets are on sale and are $39.50.

The Northeast’s favorite funkateers, Lettuce will treat the famous amphitheatre to some eclectic sounds, along with openers, The Wailers performing ‘Exodus’, Manic Focus and hip-hop trailblazer Grandmaster Flash. This impressive show, will come to Red Rocks on June 10, with tickets already on sale for $39.50.

Among these younger acts, one veteran act, Steely Dan will be performing at Red Rocks on June 13. If that isn’t enough musical experience, just remember the incomparable Steve Winwood will be support for the show, which goes on sale this Saturday, February 27.

On June 17, Gramatik will take the stage at the historic venue. There is no support act listed, but the tickets are already on sale for $39.75.

To round out the list, there is an amazing double-bill on July 14, that includes New Orleans-based funk pioneers, Galactic and the highly danceable rocktronica sounds of Boombox. These two acts will receive support from the Pimps Of Joytime, with their own brand of world-soul-funk. The tickets for this show go on sale this Friday, February 26 and with a line-up like this, they probably won’t last long.

These are some fantastic shows coming to Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer and I will try to stay on top of these, posting the information, as I get it. That Is What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

Though there is less live music to hear over the holiday week, the music venues along the Front Range get back into the swing, next week. There are some tremendous shows at Red Rocks, not to mention some of the other outdoor venues along the Front Range. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name. For more information on extensive lists of shows and festivals still to come, on the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. Whatever you do, be sure to get out and hear some live music, local or otherwise. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
