Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has announced a one-off Colorado arena show set to take place at 1stBank Center in Broomfield on Friday, December 3rd, 2021. The performance will mark the band’s final tour stop of the year.
A password-protected band Facebook pre-sale for the Broomfield, CO show will take place on Tuesday, October 19th at 1:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. MT. The password and pre-sale link will be posted to the band’s Facebook page at that time. General on-sale information has yet to be announced.
While the popular Grateful Dead-inspired act has performed at 1stBank Center before, this will mark the first time the Joe Russo-led band has performed there intentionally. Back in 2017, JRAD delivered a memorable show at 1stBank Center—the band’s arena debut—after an unseasonable late-April snowstorm pushed a scheduled gig at Red Rocks Amphitheatre indoors. The band responded in kind, offering up a Bob Dylan “Shelter From The Storm” debut to open the show and a lights-on, sing-along rendition of Bruce Springsteen‘s “Born To Run” to close it down. Read our full recap of that show here.
