Denver concerts are not a seasonal event. Whether it’s cold outside, hot as hell or rain is pouring down – Denver concerts are unrelenting and delightfully consistent. With that being said, we’ve got the guide to this week’s Denver concerts as we enter the final two weeks of September. You can go see a national act at Red Rocks or you can catch a local act rock-out The Bluebird. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be supporting the Denver scene. As always, we have some recommendations along with a playlist below.

Monday, September 18

Recommended: Muse w/ Thirty Seconds to Mars, PVRIS @ Red Rocks

The English alternative rock band Muse is returning to Red Rocks for the first time in a decade. The trio is in the middle of their North American tour in support of their award-winning album, Drones, released in 2016. Muse never fails to put on a satisfying show with their striking visuals and empowering songs. To add even more power to the mix, American rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars along with the up-and-coming band PVRIS will be joining Muse as they make their way back to Morrison. If you can find tickets for this killer lineup, it’ll be worth the investment.

Tuesday, September 19

Recommended: Ben Folds w/ Tall Heights @ The Ogden Theatre

The exceptionally talented Ben Folds is coming to town on Tuesday for an intimate performance at The Ogden Theatre. Folds is no stranger to the stage, as his musical career has been extremely diverse throughout the years. From putting a ballad-style twist on gangster-rap to writing his own music with The Ben Folds 5, Folds never fails to surprise us. Joining Folds is the Boston electronic folk group, Tall Heights. This will be a great night of entertainment at The Ogden.

Recommended: Paramore w/ Best Coast @ The Bellco Theatre

Paramore’s Tour Two is making a stop in Denver on Thursday with a performance at The Bellco Theatre. Despite the intriguing choice of venue, this show has the potential to be a highlight for 2017. Led by rock ‘n’ roll bad ass Hayley Williams, Paramore is coming off their 2017 release of After Laughter. Williams is known for her commanding stage presence and impactful vocal abilities. The pop-rock group Best Coast will be kicking off the evening and warming the crowd up for Paramore.

Recommended: High Elevation Rock Festival w/ Five Finger Death Punch, Korn, A Day To Remember, Stone Sour, Halestorm, In This Moment, Mastodon and More @ Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre

We can’t think of a more extreme way to end the work week than with a high-octane two-day rock festival at Fiddler’s Green. The High Elevation Rock Festival is returning this year with a screaming line up. Popular names in the hard-rock scene such as Korn, Five Finger Death Punch and A Day To Remember are all on the bill for 2017. This festival will be a full day of screaming distortion, piercing vocals and is sure to bring in a rowdy crowd. There are too many acts to list, so grab some passes and check out the lineup for yourself.

Recommended: Ruckus On The Rocks: Galactic & Pepper w/ Tribal Seeds, Fortunate Youth @ Red Rocks

A night of sweet jams and good vibes you say? Count us in. NOLA jam band Galactic is joining forces with the Hawaiian reggae-rock band Pepper on Sunday. Galactic has been around since the ’90s and is known to put on a soulfully diverse show, but adding some Pepper to the mix will definitely spice things up. With support from Tribal Seeds and Fortunate Youth, this show will literally be a ruckus on the rocks. Treat yourself to a night out at Red Rocks. You deserve it.
