Red Rocks isn’t holding back today. The venue added four new shows to their 2018 schedule this morning and it’s not even 11 a.m. Yesterday, AEG Presents Rocky Mountains announced Seal with the Colorado Symphony plus a co-headlining show with Yonder Mountain String Band and The Infamous Stringdusters. This morning they announced three more shows at Red Rocks, including another that features the Colorado Symphony, and Live Nation announced a Red Rocks show of their own as well.
The Grammy award-winning singer Sarah McLachlan just announced a summer show at Red Rocks where she will be performing with the Colorado Symphony. For anyone born in the ’90s, it’s no mystery that this is a can’t-miss show. McLachlan is a superstar, to say the least. With multiple Grammy awards, multiple platinum hits and millions of albums sold internationally, the Canadian hailing singer-songwriter has been dominating popular music since her first album Touch in 1988.
Her performance of “I Will Remember You” won McLachlan her third Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2000 and since, she has only continued to dominate. From performances with industry giants like Stevia Nicks to Cat Stevens and Neil Young to an Academy Award nomination for the single “When She Loved Me,” on Toy Story 2’s soundtrack, this domineering female vocalist defines stardom. And for anyone who has cried their eyes to the animal cruelty commercial, her July performance to the place to be (PSA, bring tissues.) Her ninth and most recent studio album Wonderland, released in 2016 received a Grammy nomination for the best traditional pop vocal album and though she has slowed down her industry presence, McLachlan remains a force to be reckoned with.
July 4 at Red Rocks has been a Blues Traveler tradition for over two decades now, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. This year, Blues Traveler will once again grace the stage, surrounded by fireworks from all over the Front Range (including Boulder.) G. Love & Special Sauce and The Wailers will accompany the group for a night of chill grooves. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 23 with a presale February 22 and will be available here.
Last but certainly not least, Colorado native and Denver favorite Gregory Alan Isakov will return to Red Rocks this year. The announcement comes shortly after the news on Isakov’s involvement with the Colorado compilation record 303 Music Vol. 1 benefitting Youth on Record. Last year, Isakov played two nights at Boettcher Concert Hall with the Colorado Symphony. This time around he’s returning sans the symphony and with his full band. Opening support will be delivered by Patty Griffin. Tickets go on sale February 23 at 10 a.m. with a presale on February 22 at 10 a.m. and will be available here.
