This Week In Concerts – Judy Collins, Lionel Richie, Mumford & Sons, Phantogram and More

We don’t know about you, but August certainly seems to be flying by. Even though the days of August are wearing down, there are still hundreds of Denver concerts to see over the next few weeks. As far as this week is concerned, you can expect over 100 shows going on throughout the Mile High City. Whether you prefer more intimate settings like Lost Lake or love the thrill of arena shows, there’s going to be something that suits your needs this week.

Monday, August 12

Recommended: Judy Collins w/ Joan Osborne @ Denver Botanic Gardens

On Monday night, we’re taking you over to Denver Botanic Gardens where Judy Collins will be taking over the scenic venue. Collins’ career is one to be reckoned with as the singer-songwriter has been around since 1961 and still continues to make moves to this very day. Joining Collins on her Denver stop is fellow singer-songwriter Joan Osborne, who you might remember had the hit “One Of Us” back in ’95. Tickets are on sale and can be found at the link below.
