It may still be the first few days of 2019, but outdoor concert season will be here before you know it! The world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado has kept busy over the last few weeks as producers for the outdoor venue continue to announce shows scheduled for their upcoming season. The latest 2019 concert to be announced arrived on Tuesday (along with Gregory Alan Isakov) and features indie-folk band The Head and the Heart, who have added second Red Rocks show on July 18th with support from Hippo Campus, in addition to their previously announced July 17th performance.
The Head and the Heart are no strangers to playing Red Rocks, as they’ve done so the last few years with some memorable moments. Their 2017 show even included an on-stage engagement proposal between two fans.
The band is expected to share a new studio album sometime in 2019, as their last full-length release came back in September 2016 with Signs of Light. The band recently gave somewhat of an update from the studio when they shared a lovely cover of Sheryl Crow‘s 90’s ballad, “Strong Enough”. Watch video of the recording session below:

Hippo Campus is also a relatively new band, although they fall a little more within the electro-pop realm in contrast to The Head and the Heart’s organic folk-inspired sound. Hippo Campus released their own sophomore studio album last year with Bambi, which has given them the perfect excuse to continue touring into the new year. They were also included on Bonnaroo‘s 2019 lineup announcement shared early Tuesday morning.
Tickets for the July 18th show go on sale this Friday, January 11th here.
