This Week In Concerts – Die Antwoord, Ed Sheeran, Logic and More

Wait, we’re already halfway through August? Yikes. Before the weather gets cold, check out this week’s concert line up. As always, Denver will be hosting multiple national acts in many of the city’s famous venues as well as numerous local acts spread out across the city. Use this week’s concert guide to support local Colorado talent or one of Denver’s multiple venues. Either way, you won’t be disappointed.

Logic was gone for a minute but he’s back now and will be playing Red Rocks to kick off the week. Logic is coming off the 2017 release of his latest album Everybody. The east coast chopper is known for his energetic lyricism and his abilities behind the microphone as an MC. With support from rappers Joey Bada$$ and Big Lenbo, this will be a bumping Red Rocks show. Be logical and get tickets.

If you’re looking for some recognizable songs to dance around to, catch Ed Sheeran at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday. The English singer-songwriter is headed to the 303 with fellow English singer-songwriter, James Blunt. Sheeran is known for his musical diversity and his ability to perform both with a band and by himself. This year Sheeran released his sixth studio album, Divide. The two acts will have the crowd singing along to all of their hits and you can be a part of that crowd.
