Film on the Rocks Returns, Gorillaz, Kendrick Lamar and Every New Denver Concert Announcement

Ball Arena will welcome several star-studded acts, with Kendrick Lamar bringing his Big Steppers Tour to Denver on Tuesday, August 23 (tickets are $59-$179), and the Smashing Pumpkins on Monday, November 7 (tickets are $49-$150). But perhaps most exciting is the return of Gorillaz on Wednesday, September 28, with the band’s first North American tour since 2018. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 20.

Film on the Rocks also returns to Red Rocks Amphitheater this summer on Monday nights, with the first screening June 13 with Thor: Ragnarök; each night includes a live performance from one of the biggest bands in town (can’t wait to see who they pair up with Thor). The cycle will end on August 15 with the screening of Dune. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
