Just when you thought there couldn’t be more music coming to Denver, fall concert announcements have just gotten underway. This week has brought announcements from The Weeknd, Foster the People, Slowdive, Tank and the Bangas, another show from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and more.
Following Glass Animal’s Ogden Theater announcement, Foster the People will also be heading to the Colfax venue on September 8 in support of their forthcoming album Sacred Hearts Club. The band’s plotted return to Denver will be a far more intimate affair than their 2015 performance at the Fillmore Auditorium. However, if the three new songs they shared earlier this year are any indication of what to expect on the album, it ought to one of the few times fans can catch the band in such a setting following the release of what is sure to be a well-received album.
’90s shoegaze and critical darlings Slowdive have also announced a show at the Ogden Theatre slated for November 1. The band reunited in 2014, but this year they released their first album in 22 years to the sound of critical acclaim — the self-titled Slowdive. Considering the band has never played in Denver — whether you’re in the mood for nostalgia or you’ve latched onto the band’s sound in their absence — come November 1, the wait will finally be over.
Back by popular demand, hometown heroes Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats will be taking on a second night at Red Rocks Amphitheater. While the first night of their show features the Budos Band, the recently announced second night will feature the triumphant return of the now cancer-free Charles Bradley.
You’ve probably seen their NPR Tiny Desk Concert circulating on social media a million times. But if for some reason you haven’t gotten onboard yet, Tank and the Bangas won the Tiny Desk Contest out of over 6,000 bands for a reason and deserve your attention. Come September 25 the eccentric funk/r&b group will be making their debut in Denver at Globe Hall.
Tickets for Tank and the Bangas, Foster the People, Slowdive, Nathaniel Rateliff and Charles Bradley all go on sale this Friday, June 16.
