This Week In Concerts – Alter Bridge, Dweezil Zappa, Lukas Nelson, NGHTMRE and More

It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through February 2020. As we enter the back half of the month, there are still so many remaining Denver concerts left to check out. As far as this week is concerned, we’ve got the guide to over 100 shows going on throughout the Mile High City for you to use at your disposal. There’s no time like the present to start exploring all the Denver music scene has to offer, and we’re here to help. Stay warm out there and as always – happy concert-going.

Monday, February 17

Alter Bridge w/ Clint Lowery, Deepfall

Where: The Ogden Theatre

The Lowdown: To kick things off on Monday, we recommend you head to The Ogden Theatre where rock band Alter Bridge will take things over for the evening. Alter Bridge are known for their powerful and melodic hard rock sound. If you’re unfamiliar with this band’s work, check out tracks such as “Metalingus” and “Watch Over You” to give you two different sides to their sound. Fellow artists Clint Lowery and Deepfall are joining Alter Bridge at The Ogden this Monday, so be sure to grab some tickets before it’s too late.
