How is everyone enjoying their summer so far? We know it’s still early in the summer, but it certainly seems to be flying by as we enter the second full week of June. If you’re an avid concert attendee or just looking for some new activities to spice up your week – now is your time to take advantage of the warm weather and explore the Denver music scene.

Monday, June 11

Recommended: Yes @ The Paramount Theatre

If you’re in the mood to experience some classic rock, Yes will be performing in the heart of Denver at the Paramount on Monday. Originally formed in the late ’60s, Yes has given the world such hits as “Roundabout” and “Owner Of A Lonely Heart” over the last 50 years, which is exactly what the band is celebrating. Tickets are still available to catch these classic rockers in action, so grab them while you can.

Recommended: Steeley Dan + The Doobie Brothers @ The Pepsi Center

There are a lot of classic rock acts coming through Denver this week, including Steeley Dan AND The Doobie Brothers on Tuesday at The Pepsi Center. These two classic rock stars have so many influential songs it would be hard to name even their greatest hits. Steeley Dan was responsible for the nostalgic hit “Reelin’ In The Years” while The Doobie Brothers produced hits like “Listen To The Music.” You have the chance to see both of these bands in action as they take on The Pepsi Center this week.
