Music fans in Colorado will now have the option to ring in their new year out in nature, as Red Rocks Amphitheatre will be hosting its first ever New Year’s Eve event on Dec. 31. Titled “New Year’s Eve On The Rocks,” the one night event will feature headlining performances from rap trio Migos, rapper/singer Post Malone and Atlanta oddball Young Thug. “One Night” rapper Lil Yachty is also scheduled to perform at the Dec. 31 event, along with Dizzy Wright, King Green and "American Idol" alumni Jairon Jackson.
Announced on Tuesday, the upcoming party is the first time a New Year's Eve concert will be held at the famously picturesque outdoor venue, which is located in the town of Morrison just outside of Denver. The 9,500 capacity venue annually hosts some of pop music’s biggest touring artists each spring, summer and fall—weather permitting of course. Artists who have taken the naturally carved-out stage in 2017 include Phoenix, The Avett Brothers, Beck, Gorillaz and Odesza, to name but a few.
It comes as no surprise to anyone who has ever been to Colorado in late December that it has taken this long for the outdoor venue located up in the mountains to open its doors in the dead of winter. Fans should plan on wrapping themselves deep inside their awesomely overblown fur and winter coats as the concert enters the later hours of the night.
As fancy tradition allows, fans will get the chance to embrace their inner “Bad & Boujee," for the annual holiday, in addition to sharing plenty of “Congratulations” toasts at midnight when 2017 makes its much needed transition into the rear view window.
Tickets for the New Year’s Eve event go on sale starting this Friday, Oct. 13, and can be purchased by clicking here.
