The legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater often plays host to some of music's biggest names, and the venue already has some great summer nights planned for 2020, including its annual three-night run with folk band The Avett Brothers.

The band will perform at the venue for the seventh year in a row July 10 through 12, each night with a different opener--G. Love & Special Sauce will join on July 10 (Tickets), while Mark Lanegan will perform July 12 (Tickets). The July 11 guest has yet to be announced (Tickets). Tickets for all three shows go on sale this Friday, Nov. 22, and pre-sales begin Thursday, Nov. 21. VIP and travel packages will also be available.

The Avett Brothers' tenth studio album, Closer Than Together, was released last month and dealt with numerous political and social issues the band said were "developed through and inspired by not only what we see inside our homes and our travels, but by the connections, we are blessed to nourish."

Their music--particularly 2004 release Mignonette--will be the basis for an upcoming musical called Swept Away, the story of a shipwrecked crew in 1888, set to premiere in June 2020 at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, California.

The band will also be on tour through the spring and part of the summer, including a brief run serving as support for Ringo Starr and his All Starr Band.
