Colorado loves Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. And the band loves Colorado right back.

Just days before the band’s sold out show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Brooklyn’s premiere Grateful Dead cover band has announced a pair of 2017 shows in the Centennial State. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will again perform at the Ogden Theatre on April 28, followed by a co-headlining gig at Red Rocks with the jazz funk trio Medeski Martin & Wood on April 29. Ticket bundles for both concerts, as well as individual tickets to the Red Rocks show, are now on sale right here on

Formed by former Furthur drummer Joe Russo, the cleverly-monikered band got their start in 2013 and has since emerged as one of the most original and skilled Dead cover bands. In addition to Russo, the band is filled out by Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz, keyboardist Marco Benevento, and dual guitarists and vocalists Scott Metzger and Tom Hamilton.
