Although April is sprinkled with a peppering of shows, it is in May that things really begin to ramp up at the famed venue. As has always been the case with Red Rocks, the lineup for May has a little something for everyone with an eclectic mix of bands and artists spanning a wide variety of genres. The lineup for the whole Red Rocks season is looking stacked (click here for the full concert calendar) and the shows in May are microcosm of the stellar season.
May gets underway with two nights fro acclaimed MC and singer Chance the Rapper on May 2 and 3. Famed psychedelic funk-metal rockers Primus with special guests, The Claypool Lennon Delirium on May 16 are coming to RR, unfortunately it is sold out as well. The Film on the Rocks series is also offering up some great films in May with “Superbad” (May 15) and “Rogue One” (May 22). There is also a going to be a screening of the new Martin Scorsese Grateful Dead documentary “Long Strange Trip” on May 25.
The final week of May is a doozy and features three amazing two-night stands. It gets underway with a two-night run from critically acclaimed country rocker Chris Stapleton May 23 and 24. Another great two-night run comes from electronic duo ODESZA May 27 and 28. Legendary rockers Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers close out the trifecta of two-nights May 29 and 30. May closes out with a performance from Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio on May 31 (this show is also sold out).
