It’s the final week of 2017, and what a year in concerts it has been. This year we saw Depeche Mode light up The Pepsi Center, Muse returned to Red Rocks for the first time in 10 years, Green Day smashed a car (kinda) at Fiddler’s Green and Rezz scored two sold-out nights at The Odgen Theatre. We can’t think of a better way to end 2017 than with a week full of shows. Happy holidays, and happy concert hunting from us here at 303 Magazine.
