Persistence, as they say, pays off. New Orleans rock soul outfit The Revivalists was beloved in their hometown and had been a steady live draw for almost 10 years before their breakout single "Wish I Knew You" introduced them to a widespread audience on the radio. Thanks to their well-deserved success, The Revivalists just announced the band's first-ever headlining show at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
The Revivalists will be joined by Houndmouth and J Roddy Walston and the Business when they perform at Red Rocks on Thursday, Sep. 13. Presale for the show starts tomorrow, March 8, with the general on sale kicking off at 10am the following day. Grab your tickets to the show right here on AXS.com.
Having performed at the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience last year (and at Red Rocks in support of Michael Franti and Spearhead in 2015), The Revivalists have been longtime favorites in Colorado. The eight-piece ensemble--vocalist and guitarist David Shaw; lead guitarist Zack Feinberg; pedal steel guitarist Ed Williams; bassist George Gekas; keyboardist and trumpet player Michael Girardot; saxophonist Rob Ingraham; drummer Andrew Cappanelli; and percussionist and newest member of the group PJ Howard--finally broke through the rest of the country last year, when "Wish I Knew" crossed a variety of Billboard formats and set a new record for the most weekly spins ever at Alternative radio.
But regardless of their radio success, the band still focuses first-and-foremost on their live show.
“Playing live is the life blood of this band,” Shaw has said. “It’s how we connect. There’s no substitute for getting out there in someone’s face, letting them see the veins popping out in your neck, or sweat dripping off your knuckles as you strum a guitar.”
That visceral experience is one of the best parts about seeing them live and taking the stage at one of the greatest venues in the world should make for one of the most memorable concerts of their career. Click here to get your tickets and keep it on AXS.com for more on The Revivalists.
