Mission Ballroom opening week lineup announced: Lumineers, Trey Anastasio, Ben Harper & more

AEG Presents is thrilled to announce the launch of an innovative new venue in Denver, Mission Ballroom, located in Denver’s burgeoning RiNo neighborhood. To celebrate the grand opening, the Mission Ballroom will play host to a trio of stellar shows beginning with hometown heroes The Lumineers on Wednesday, Aug. 7 followed by a two-night run from Trey Anastasio Band Friday & Saturday, Aug. 9 & 10. Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals along with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue will close out this amazing week of music on Monday, Aug. 12. You can purchase tickets to all these great shows on AXS below.

The Mission Ballroom brings to Colorado one of the most innovative and unique concert experiences in the region. Here’s what CEO of AEG Presents Rocky Mountains Chuck Morris had to say about the new venue.

“Mission Ballroom was designed with three core components that up to this point have not been fully integrated together in the club concert experience in the United States: flexibility in capacities, unrivaled sightlines and state-of-the-art in-house sound and lighting. Fans and the bands will love it.”

Bands are already loving it. “I love the idea of a venue being built from scratch by people who care so deeply about the live music experience,” Trey Anastasio said. “I'm honored and excited to be one of the first artists to break it in." The Lumineers also chimed in. “What an honor to be the very first band to be playing this beautiful new venue!” 

What fans and bands alike will love about Mission Ballroom is its use of the 60,000 square-foot space, which incorporates mobile-stage technology to build intimate concert experiences of differing sizes. Mission Ballroom can accommodate between 2,200 to 3,950 concertgoers with at least half of the capacity having access to seating. 

The venue will also utilize a groundbreaking new ticketing method dubbed “Mission Fair Ticketing.” The system gives equal access to all fans and blocks ticket bots and brokers that rob fans of the opportunity to purchase tickets at face value. Not all shows will utilize Mission Fair Ticketing but those that do will be clearly marked.
