Lettuce this week announced it will join soul-funk icons Tower of Power for a very special concert featuring The Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 20th.

The bands were originally slotted to co-headline two Ohio shows in Huber Heights and Cincinnati in September 2021 but were forced to postpone the concerts after a member of Lettuce tested positive for COVID-19. Lettuce recently rescheduled those shows along with a slew of others, including some European dates, amounting to a full world tour.

Lettuce and Tower of Power have a deep-rooted musical connection, as Lettuce drummer and composer Adam Deitch explained in an Instagram post about the collaboration: “I’ve been a Tower of Power fan since I was a child… Took a lesson with their legendary drummer [David Garibaldi] at 12, and saw them live a year later. Spent hundreds of hours playing along to their albums in my parents basement. And HERE we are… and let’s just throw in a symphony for that matter..” The two bands share an affinity for syncopated grooves, and they both have funky drummers as the foundation of their sound.

The upcoming collaboration is sure to be a major highlight of Lettuce’s ongoing Unify World Tour, which includes stops at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, and High Sierra Music Festival. In September, the sextet will embark on a tour of Europe with shows in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and more. The band also has a new album, Unify, dropping on June 3rd.
