Dates are 10/1 and 10/2. Late in year. Will be interesting if it continues at Fiddlers or moves to pepsi center since it is October. I didn't see anything that said a venue.

Cool. Never know that time of year. Could be nice, could be chilly, could be snowing.

Got the update on my Ants app and called all my friends. I was the only one excited. I guess most people don't plan their lives 17 months out.

What is the best hotel option within walking distance to the venue?

Walk to outside merch get your stuff and take it back to the room. Plenty of restaurants and the light rail there as well. Usually full of several other DMB fans. Spacious rooms too.

At first I thought it was this fall and got really excited. Then I calmed down when I saw it was next year.

Still excited though. I mean it, something to look forward to seeing as all of my concerts so far this year have been cancelled or likely will :shrug

We stayed at the Wingate by Wyndham Greenwood Village/Denver Tech in 2018.

Able to go get merch outside of venue, take back to room, then go into amp. It was nice.

I'll be there for N2. We'll see on N1. The last two times at Fiddlers they mail it in N1 and drop all the goodies on N2. Last year I skipped N1 to go see Joe Rogan stand up at the Bellco theater. Well worth it.

Hoping the rarities continue for us at Fiddlers. Last year was my favorite opening run of tunes I've seen in person.

Why I Am
Grace is Gone ->
Warehouse
Sam Cop
Kill the Preacher (tease) ->
Dont Drink the Water
Spoon (!!!!)
The Best of Whats Around (!!!)

Sam Cop is a big wet fart to me, but aside from that, I'd take that opening run at every show.

Not even a worldwide pandemic can get them to play Red Rocks again.

Speilmen230 05-06-2020 03:30 PM

Re: *** Official Denver, CO 2021
 
They'll play red rocks again once they can't draw 15k in one night. And then it will become a destination expensive show which will also suck for locals.

Thanks for the hotel suggestions. It appears it’s to far out to book, lol. Seriously considering adding Denver next year though!!

Meaning they'll never play there as a group, since they're always going to be able to draw that many.

That's hilarious.

This band's attendance is declining year after year.

They do still sell out Fiddlers twice every time they come though

i am very into this. it will have been 8 long years since i've seen them at that point. i expect to have a really really good time, which i wasn't when i was setlist bitching half the time because i had seen them like 4 times already that summer and the year before...etc...

If they had come through Denver with two stops for the last 10 years do you think it would be all sell outs? I think the band and the local promoter in Denver have strategically held back DMB in Denver to drive demand.

They skipped us in 2020. So what the new date says to me is they were coming back in 2021 anyway, which again means they skipped us purposefully this year.

RR is tiny, but i had no idea it was a venue where once you hit a certain crowd number you just say fuck it. I've seen some bands there who could easily sell out amphitheaters, and have. interesting.

Speilmen230 05-08-2020 12:54 PM

Re: *** Official Denver, CO 2021
 
Two nights is a standard move for the big acts at RR. Sometimes 3 nights.

Tom Petty easily could have sold out Fiddlers or Pepsi on his 40th anniversary tour but he instead did 2 red rocks shows. And they were magic.

I've also heard the load in logistics for RR is a chore and a half. But ya know... Whatever? It obviously doesn't stop many major acts from playing there.

I agree it's a strategy thing and I don't like it ;) Not sure I agree with it either as they have always done well in Colorado though. That being said would they sell out every year? I don't know.

Heard that. It would be dope if they did back to back 3 night stands for Red Rocks and the Gorge. Thursday-Sat at RR the weekend before labor day and then the traditional 3 night stand over labor day for the Gorge.

It's not so much of a logistical issue that they couldn't possibly do 3-4 nights there every couple of years. Even if it meant having a scaled back stage/lighting rig.

Oh, you mean each one of them may not be able to take their own 50 ft tour bus to the venue?? Tragic.

Speilmen230 05-08-2020 01:57 PM

Re: *** Official Denver, CO 2021
 
From my understanding it's actually more of a crew thing than the band having their private buses next to the venue.

This is an old article about the Allman Brothers playing there in 2003.

Iíd say Dave and Tim play there before the full band easy. Although, 2017 was the perfect opportunity and it didnít happen.
