STS9 returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO over the weekend for a two-night run of concerts dubbed Sky World. The livetronica pioneers then traveled to nearby Denver for a daytime performance at Levitt Pavilion on Sunday featuring special “Wave Spell” and “Axe The Cables” sets.
Each night of the Sky World run featured a different opening act, with DJ Chrome Sparks kicking things off on Friday. That evening, STS9 performed an extended set at Red Rocks. The following night, Tribe returned with Tycho to open the show with a special DJ set.
When it was originally announced last year, STS9’s Red Rocks run was set to include a “warm-up” show at the intimate Summit Music Hall in Denver on Friday, July 23rd, with the Red Rocks shows on the 24th and 25th. Instead, with COVID-19 safety in mind, the band decided to move the show outdoors and tack it onto the end of the run rather than the beginning—turning it into more of a “cool-down” show than a “warm-up.”

These three concerts marked STS9’s first live performances since the pandemic began. The run was envisioned as part two of the band’s 2019 Red Rocks event, Push The Sky.
