Popular jam bands Twiddle and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will team up for a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado next spring, as the two rock outfits announced on Monday that they will co-headline the famous outdoor venue on Thursday, May 2, 2019. The two bands will be joined that evening by special guests the Kitchen Dwellers.
The upcoming show may be a few months down the line, but the May 2 event is just the latest 2019 concert which Red Rocks has announced so far this fall, following The 1975 (April 30), Shpongle (May 3-4), Lord Huron (May 14) and Michael Franti & Spearhead (June 7), just to name a few. As of Monday, the May 2 concert is one of the only performances which both bands have scheduled and announced for the coming year, with exception of Twiddle’s appearance at M3F Fest in early March and Pigeons’ headlining debut at The Capitol Theatre in New York on Jan. 26.
Both bands continue their seemingly endless tour schedules into the fall months as 2018 starts to come to an end. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong announced recently that their Halloween concert at The National in Richmond, Virginia on Oct. 31 will be themed around "Red Hot Sergeant Peppers," a musical mashup of The Beatles and Red Hot Chili Peppers. The funky rock band will also play a pair of hometown shows at Baltimore’s Rams Head Live! next month on Nov. 23-24.
Twiddle, who has also earned a strong reputation within the jam scene since forming in the mid-2000s, continue their own busy fall with upcoming scheduled shows at The National on Oct. 24, and Los Angeles’ The Novo with SOJA and Xiuhtezcatl on Nov. 9. This is not the first time that Twiddle have taken the Red Rocks stage, as the band played the venue alongside moe. in 2017, and with Stick Figure this past May.
Tickets for the May 2 Red Rocks concerts will begin general on-sale starting this Friday (Oct. 26) at 10 a.m. MST, and can be purchased by clicking here. Until then, fans can tune into the pro-shot video seen above of Pigeons' performance at Red Rocks from this past summer.
