Colorado is home to Westone Audio, where you’ll find the best in-ear musician monitors and in-ear headphones in the world. Music is a big part of the mile-high lifestyle so it makes sense that some of the best concert venues in America – and world – are here and many of this year’s hottest bands will be playing in Denver and surrounding cities in upcoming months. Here are a few must-see Rocky Mountain venues and concerts this summer:
Red Rocks Amphitheatre was listed #1 on the Rolling Stone’s ‘Best Amphitheaters in America’ list. If you haven’t attended a concert at Red Rocks be sure to put it at the top of your own to-do list. The venue sits 6,450 feet above sea level and has breathtaking views of Colorado. About a month ago The Fray performed ‘How to Save a Life’ at Red Rocks (video above) and lead singer Isaac Slade (who wears Westone in-ear monitors) mentioned that this is the best city to play in. Of course, The Fray is from Denver, Colorado so they may be a bit biased.
On April 20th Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa will be performing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre at 7:30 pm and Westone endorsed artists Toby Mac and Skillet will be performing on May 4th at 6 pm. Many more fantastic concerts are scheduled for this spring and summer so be sure to check out the Red Rocks official concert calendar and get your tickets soon as shows here do sell out.
Another event to put on your calendar is the 2014 Country Jam. The concert will take place from June 19-22 in Grand Junction, Colorado. Lady Antebellum (another band that wears Westone IEMs), Eric Church, and Joe Nichols are on the lineup during the 4 day event and new artists including Kelly Pickler are being added daily. Follow Country Jam on twitter to stay up to date on all of the latest news. On-site camping is available which is great for anyone who wants to attend more than one day and get the full experience. Buy your tickets early!
Country music fans also have Bands in the Backyard the weekend of June 19th taking place in Pueblo, Colorado, just off of Hwy 50. The Outpost Harley Davidson Stage will feature Blackjack Billy, Casey Donahue Band and Uncle Kracker on Friday. Saturday you’ll see Chase Rice, Thomas Rhett and Jake Owen perform. Get your tickets this week and reserve a camping space or hotel room ASAP if you’re spending the night.
