Blockbuster Concerts in Denver

Denver’s music scene rivals such cities as Los Angeles and New York, in terms of opportunities to catch live music. Coming from out of town, the sheer number of concerts is undoubtedly overwhelming, so to simplify things, we've compiled a list of the must-see Denver shows. Many of these are exclusive to the region. 

May 11, 2024 - Black Coffee @ Red Rocks
Pioneering South African DJ Black Coffee is set to make his Red Rocks debut in May of this year. Coming off the heels of a very severe travel accident earlier this year, it’s his Red Rocks debut is a testament to the dedicated fanbase he has built as well as the tenacity to keep moving forward through the sure trauma of his recent accident. This show won’t just be life-affirming for the audience but Black Coffee himself, as well. 

May 12, 2024 – Sleep Token @ Red Rocks
We will let you into a secret, Sleep Token may just be the buzziest show coming to Red Rocks this year. The evocative metal band, known for their raw shape-shifting sound and mysterious identities, is climbing rapidly to the forefront of metal and hard rock. Don’t be surprised if the next time you see them they are selling out arenas; if you know, you know. 

May 17 & 18, 2024 - Billy Strings @ Fiddler’s Green
Billy Strings' profile has only continued to surge in the Mile High City, as he’s announced his return with two consecutive nights at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater. The bluegrass phenom is well on his way to becoming a staple of a Denver summer in the same way that The String Cheese Incident and PHISH already are. 

May 27 & 28, 2024 - Maggie Rogers @ Red Rocks 

Maggie Rogers is heading back to Red Rocks for another round this summer. As a generational voice, the “Don’t Forget Me” singer’s performances last year were nothing short of transcendent and even if she tried her best, there's nothing forgettable about Maggie Rogers. 

June 4, 2024 - All Time Low @ Red Rocks
Pop-punk stalwarts All Time Low are pop-punk legends, and this year they are celebrating 20 years of skin in the game at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Riding the pop-punk resurgence, their timing couldn’t be better to let it rip like it used to back in the days of studded belts, black eyeliner and Myspace Top 8. 

June 14 & 15, 2024 - Zach Bryan @ Empower Field at Mile High
Zach Bryan may just be the name on everyone’s lips, at least in the country world that is. But genre be damned, Bryan has become a crossover sensation with his earnest songwriting and admirable character that has run him up the Billboard charts on track to becoming a household name, if he isn’t already. Hell, he’s playing at Empower Field – we think this is what “making it” looks like. 

June 17, 2024 - Parcels @ Red Rocks
Parcels’ lone 2024 U.S. tour date is at none other than Red Rocks. For the tightly synced Australian disco-rock outfit, it’s more than a night at the iconic venue, it's their largest U.S. show to date and surely the launching point for their full-stop takeover. This one might just be history in the making. 

June 20, 2024 - The Rolling Stones @ Empower Field at Mile High
The Rolling Stones make their heavily anticipated return to Denver this summer. If you couldn’t tell by the sudden increase of memorabilia and their notorious logo splattered upon sidewalks and emblazoned on Empower Field’s facade for a time, it’s a big deal. Truly no one, outside of Paul McCartney, does it like them, so when the opportunity to go presents itself you’ve got to go. 

June 27, 2024 - blink-182 @ Red Rocks
Newly reunited and it feels good. Blink-182 are whole again, with their original lineup and back to their old ways. Coming out just as electric and banter-filled as their younger days, Blink-182 are banging those power chords and coming-of-age anthems with the fervor of their twenty-something younger selves. Time away apart has only made them sharper and a little bit crazier too. 

June 25 & 26, 2024 - Noah Kahan @ Fiddler’s Green
One of folk music’s newest and brightest stars, Noah Kahan continues his amazing hot streak following last year’s very sold-out run at Red Rocks. This time around he’s covering an astonishing two nights at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater, and by the sound of its rapid sale, “Stick Season” is far from over. 

June 27 & 28, 2024 - Morgan Wallen @ Empower Field at Mile High
At this point, Morgan Wallen is a bona fide superstar. His 2021 album, "Dangerous: The Double Album" seems to live in the Billboard Top Ten, and he crushed all of 2023 with his inescapable hit, “Last Night.” Now, the country titan is playing stadiums in what seems like an overnight success, but if you’ve been paying attention, it also has felt inevitable. 

June 30, 2024 - Nas w/ The Colorado Symphony @ Red Rocks
One of hip-hop's most storied emcees adds a bookmark to his illustrious career with his imminent collaboration with The Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks this summer. The Colorado Symphony with any artist is a treat, but there's just something about recreating soul-sampled, hearty hip-hop and recontextualizing it with classical music that just hits even more. 

June 30, 2024 - Pixies & Modest Mouse @ Fiddler’s Green
Well, if this isn’t an indie rock fever dream. Pixies, Modest Mouse and even Cat Power all joining forces for a night at Fiddler’s Green is a time capsule to the angst-ridden, festival-frequenting days of our youth, and we couldn’t be happier about it. 

July 12, 2024 - Billy Joel @ Coors Field
With his Madison Square Garden run ending, Billy Joel is stepping out. Not only with his first new song, “Turn the Lights Back On” in literal decades, the pianist and crooner is also turning his sights on the road. Heading to Denver for the first time since 2019, Billy Joel will bring his timeless turns to Coors Field once again. What’s more timeless than a summer night with Billy Joel at the helm? Sing us a song ‘Piano Man.’

July 18, 2024 - Dr. Dog @ Red Rocks
Dr. Dog’s days of touring full-stop may be over, but they are far from done as evidenced by their forthcoming Red Rocks debut. Their only date of 2024, one which will see fans far and wide descend upon The Mile High City, will be rare no doubt, for any fan who believes they’d never be able to see their favorite band again.

July 22, 2024 - Jennifer Lopez @ Ball Arena
Jennifer Lopez is back, potentially with the last album of her career and a bigger - truer statement of self-discovery in tow. The album, film, and tour all dubbed This Is Me...Now, acts as an exclamation point on a long and well-loved career through the mediums from the Latina icon.

July 29 & 30, 2024 - Santana and Counting Crows @ Ball Arena
Santana and Counting Crows is like a peanut burger on a hamburger, an unlikely, and slightly challenging combination that proves delicious. These two well-traversed and ever-endearing acts bring decade-spanning songs and no shortage of hits between them particularly the nostalgia for their work from the late-90’s into the early aughts.

Aug 3, 2024 - Foo Fighters @ Empower Field at Mile High
The Foo Fighters are poised to make their grand return to stadiums all across the country following the untimely passing of lauded drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Dave Grohl and the gang are ensuring the show goes on not just for their sake and the fans, but because it’s what Hawkins would’ve wanted. To that, there is no greater tribute. 

Aug 14 & 15, 2024 - The Revivalists + Spoon @ Red Rocks
The Revivalists are eyeing a reprise of their annual Red Rocks foray, but this time they are bringing indie heavyweights, Spoon, along for the ride. Roots rock and an indie great back-to-back? Sounds like a mid-aughts fever dream — we’re in!

Aug 23 & 24, 2024 - Dave Matthews Band @ Fiddler’s Green
Dave Matthews Band jam on in a welcome return to Fiddler’s Green for the summer hurrah tradition of their communal live shows. While not an annual event, their return is a cherry atop the dog days of summer, where the stars align, magic happens, and it looks a lot like a cold beer in the grass and a whole lot of reminiscing as soundtracked by this iconic outfit.

Sept 7, 2024 - Green Day and Smashing Pumpkins @ Coors Field
Following up their star-studded Hella Mega Tour of 2021, Green Day is back on the road but this time, with the no less impactful Smashing Pumpkins. Two rock titans meeting in the middle, and Green Day’s plans to perform American Idiot and Dookie front to back is a chef’s kiss of a pairing.

Sept 9, 2024 - Incubus - @ Ball Arena
Incubus take a trip down memory lane with their seminal album, "Morning View," which is inching closer and closer to a 25th Anniversary. Speaking of celebrations, Incubus are reigning it in with some major shows, Denver included as the band assumes the Ball Arena stage for an arena blowout. 

Sept 17 & 18, 2024 - USHER @ Ball Arena
Fresh off Super Bowl Halftime Show duties, USHER blasts to two nearly sold-out nights at Ball Arena for his Past, Present and Future tour. This outing is years in the making of a grand comeback tour for one of R&B’s principal hitmakers that not only included the Super Bowl but a wildly successful residency in Vegas and a resurgence in his influential discography. 

Sept 17 & 18, 2024 - Mitski @ Red Rocks and Fiddler’s Green
In indie rock, no one is touching the domination of Miski. A beneficiary of the critical blogosphere, Mitski has also been able to harness the power of the internet with a never-ending spell of virality, most recently with the exponential TikTok ascension of “My Love Mine All Mine.” Gen-Z will be out full throttle for this one.

Oct 5 & 6, 2024 - LSZEE: CLOZEE + LSDREAM @ Red Rocks
Two of Bass Music’s breakout stars are teaming up for an explosive collaboration. LSZEE the collective moniker, will see the coming together of LSDREAM and CLOZEE for not just a performance but a full album coming in 2024 as well. Brace your neck, because you’ll be riding the rail anywhere within earshot of this blowout.

Nov 1 & 2, 2024 - deadmau5: RETRO5PECTIVE: 20 YEARS OF DEADMAU5
It’s hard to believe that deadmau5 has been in the game for 20 years already. Time certainly flies when you’re one of the industry’s biggest trolls. But truth be told, deadmau5 is a legend in electronic music, and his name and reputation speak volumes to the energy and innovation he’s injected into the genre since he first donned his iconic mouse head.
