Blues Traveler will once again return to Red Rocks in 2017 for what has become a Colorado 4th of July tradition. And if you grew up in the 90s you’re in for a bit of nostalgia. Joining John Popper and company are Rusted Root, Spin Doctors and The Samples. The show will take place Tuesday, July 4. A special presale will begin Thursday, April 6 at 10:00 a.m. MST. General on-sales get underway Friday, April 7 at 10:00 a.m. MST. Follow this link to find Blue Traveler Red Rocks tickets.

The bands on the 4th of July Red Rocks bill are certainly no strangers to each other. In fact, Blues Traveler, Rusted Root, Spin Doctors and The Samples were all members of the H.O.R.D.E tours of the 1990s along with bands like Phish, Dave Matthews’s Band and Widespread Panic. The H.O.R.D.E tour— H.O.R.D.E stands for Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere, the acronym was reportedly coined by John Popper—is widely credited as a catalyst for the now burgeoning jamband scene.
