Passenger had a smash hit with "Let Her Go" which you can listen to by playing the video above. Since its release in 2012, the single has racked up more than 2 billion views on YouTube alone. The indie-pop artist now comes to the Gothic Theatre in Englewood with a full catalog of songs designed to melt audiences. Even zombies and vampires will get warm and fuzzy feelings from this concert. Note that fans must be 16 years old or older to attend.
Music fans wanting to do something epic for the holiday need look no further than Josh Groban. One of the best voices in music brings his tour to Denver's Pepsi Center, in support of his most recent album Bridges. With his impressive vocal ability and sparkling personality, Groban is an all-around entertainer. And if that's not enough, he's got Broadway legend Idina Menzel as his special guest. What's not to love?
Goo Goo Dolls are celebrating Halloween by also celebrating the 20th anniversary of their hit record Dizzy Up The Girl. That's the album that contained beloved songs like "Slide" and "Black Balloon." While they'll be revisiting their best release, expect that Goo Goo Dolls will also play some more recent material, too. It's a fantastic show for rock fans who want to do something for the holiday, while also appreciating a piece of rock history.
Carl Broemel is bringing his solo tour to Denver on Halloween night. Best known as the guitarist for My Morning Jacket, Bromel released his fourth solo album Wished Out earlier this year and is now touring in support of it. Fans of the band will enjoy getting to hear him perform his own original work. But even if you've never heard of them, this is an opportunity to enjoy some wonderful guitar playing, too. Note that fans must be 16 years old or older to attend.
Remember Fisher from their hit ballad "I Will Love You"? Well, the duo is back on the road again, bringing with them plenty of new music. They went on to release six other albums since "I Will Love You" appeared on True North back in 2000, so pop fans who only know one song have a lot of catching up to do. But that's also the appeal of this concert; Fisher has much more than one good song, and what better way to spend Halloween than to hear a startlingly good band?
