Update 2/15 at 2:30 p.m. – Online information has since been removed about the Die Antwoord Red Rocks show. Check back for details. 

Update 2/17 at 11:30 a.m. – Information remains removed from AXS and Bandsintown. The event is still posted on Die Antwoord’s Facebook and Twitter. We have reached out to AEG and Die Antwoord for comment. Go here for more information. 

Update 5/5/17 at 8:50 a.m. – AEG has officially announced the Die Antwoord Red Rocks show scheduled for the original date of August 20. The show is a part of Die Antwoord’s 2017 Love Drug World Tour.

Looks like Red Rocks is going to get weird this summer. Late last night in an uncharacteristically subtle move, Die Antwoord announced their first headlining performance at the iconic venue to go down on August 20, 2017. The polarizing and often controversial South African rave-rap group is known to put on a bizarre spectacle and their debut Red Rocks show should be no exception.

The group’s electrifying appearance in Denver last September was at a junction where the group’s future was up in the air. Having noted their intent to release a total of five albums, Die Antwoord released their fourth Mount Ninja and da Nice Time Kid on September 16, 2016 and performed what many considered to potentially be their last show in Denver. But alas, even if their fifth album is their last, they’ve since stated that they’d still pursue music in some capacity but that they’d want to “leave the legacy perfect than muck it up with a slow decline.”

It remains unseen whether the group is embarking on a full fledge tour or whether their Red Rocks performance is to be a one-off. But, with this latest show announcement, the group shows no sign of slowing anytime soon. One thing is for sure though, this show will be one for the books.

Tickets go on sale February 17, 2017 at 10 a.m. via AXS.

    I this show date listed on: axs, bandsintown and on their facebook page and now all of it has disappeared? So as subtle as they announced it, they took it away.

      I know! It also disappeared from the DA website, and it is not on the Red Rocks calendar. Does anyone have any info? You could “buy” tickets 2 days ago on AXS-but he pre-sale was supposed to start this morning.

    Does anyone know if this is still happening?! So weird how everything about it disappeared! I know axs was having issues and accidentally released pre-sale tickets for the 1975 – everyone’s tickets said void when they were emailed – so maybe it has something to do with them? I definitely can’t miss this!

    AXS is not listing tickets for this event. They have not gone on sale. The band does not have a listing on their site. And now the “online information has been removed”?

    What’s going on here guys? Was this fake news?

    The information in the article said Friday February 17th at 10 am for presale Tix. There is no presale offered on axs RedRocks or DA website. The concert is not even listed anywhere. An updated be helpful.

    Hey Everyone!

    Thanks for reading and following 303 Magazine! We want to keep you updated so here’s what we know: At the time of publishing this article (as most of you saw as well) we had three sources – the AXS ticketing page, the Bandsintown Event, and the event was shared by Die Antwoord to their official Facebook page. All of that information has since been removed. We’ve reached out to AEG for comment and have not received a response. We’ll keep this article updated as any new facts arise so be sure to check back for more information.

    Cheers,
    Tyler
