This Week In Concerts – Mary J. Blige, OneRepublic, STS9 and More


Welcome to September. Can you think of a better way to start off a month than with an extra long weekend and a sh*t-load of shows? We can’t, so let’s keep the party going. If you’re looking to dive into some Denver concert escapades, check out any one of the 100 plus shows happening this week. As always, we’ve got a little something for everyone.

Monday, September 4

The jukebox heroes are coming to Red Rocks. Classic rock legends Foreigner and Cheap Trick will be bringing their hits to Morrison. Foreigner rose to fame in the late ’70s and ’80s and is known for their recognizable hits such as “Cold As Ice,” “Feels Like The First Time” and “I Want To Know What Love Is.” Jason Bonham, the son of Led Zepplin’s late drummer, John Bonham, will be joining the two classic acts in the show. Bonham will be honoring his father’s band and the legacy they left behind. This show should be a great trip down memory lane.

Get tickets here.

In April of this year, Blige returned to the scene with her release of Strength Of A Woman. Soul singer Lalah Hathaway will be joining Blige as they visit the Mile High City. Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can.

Local talent, social activism and fire beats — those three things can be used to get insight into the local hip-hop group Wheelchair Sports Camp. They will be headlining The Hi-Dive with The Other Black and Midwife (both local Denver bands) as a stop on their international 3 Amigas Tour. Wheelchair Sports Camp, led by MC Kalyn Heffernan, has been moving up in the Colorado music scene over the years and are worth checking out. Catch them for one of their hometown tour stops at The Hi-Dive.
