[4/5/21]: Red Rocks Amphitheatre continues to add to its 2021 event calendar following last week’s announcement that shows would soon return to the famed outdoor Morrison, CO venue with limited capacities.
The demand for live music at Red Rocks is certainly there. Last week’s first new 2021 Red Rocks announcement, a two-night run by jamtronica favorites Lotus in late April, quickly ballooned to a four-night engagement due to popular demand. Similarly, a two-night run by producer/singer ZHU quickly snowballed from a two-night run to a six-night residency featuring a slew of supporting artists (5/3 with Manic Focus; 5/4 with Marvel Years; 5/5 with Kill Paris; 5/9–5/11 with special guests TBA).
Since last week, the venue made a slew of new 2021 show announcements and rescheduled various postponed 2020 shows still on the calendar until 2022. The pattern will likely continue as live shows are gradually permitted to get larger, with postponed 2020 shows that have already sold too many tickets for a socially distanced revamp being pushed out another year and new, smaller-scale shows taking over those dates on the 2021 calendar.
In terms of new shows, fans can look forward to upcoming limited-capacity performances by Trevor Hall with Cas Haley (4/29, 4/30), SunSquabi (5/6), Diplo with Sidepiece (5/12, 5/13), OSEES with LFZ (5/15), and comedian Bill Burr (9/16). In terms of new postponements, Hippie Sabotage, Brantley Gilbert, David Gray, Lord Huron, and others have set rescheduled 2022 dates for upcoming 2021 shows, which were themselves initially rescheduled from 2020.
Tedeschi Trucks Band, meanwhile, announced that its 2021 Wheels of Soul tour, initially rescheduled from 2020, would be rescheduled once again to 2022, though the band’s rescheduled 2022 Red Rocks dates were not included in the announcement.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre will open, with State approval, at a capacity of 2,500 people! You should see announcements soon 👀
