Today is a big day for Red Rocks announcements. Comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah and singer/songwriters Shakey Graves and Norah Jones all announced headlining dates at the amphitheater this summer. First and foremost, Trevor Noah is slated to hit Red Rocks for his first time ever on May 19. Dubbed “The Loud and Clear Tour,” the forthcoming jaunt follows a slew of awards and accolades for everything from his Comedy Central Daily Show hosting duties to his Netflix comedy special and his New York Times Bestselling book, Born A Crime. Additionally, in recent years, Noah has become a viral counter of sorts to the Trump Administration, upping the ante on his political and social commentary in the process. Noah’s last appearance in Denver was in 2017 at the Bellco Theatre.
Later in the summer, Norah Jones will be returning to the amphitheater as well as Shakey Graves. Jones will grace Red Rocks on July 16 alongside Mavis Staples, and Shakey Graves will be passing through on August 15 with Dr. Dog and Caroline Rose in tow. July 16, will mark Jones’ second time performing at the venue following last year’s performance in June on the heels of 2016’s Day Breaks, and a couple loose singles throughout the past two years. Shakey Graves, a longtime Denver favorite, will also return following a showing at the amphitheater last year, that time with openers Jose Gonzales and Twin Peaks.
Tickets for the upcoming concerts will go on sale Friday, February 1 at 10 a.m. via AXS.
