Can't Hardly Wait: Big Head Todd and Barenaked Ladies to hit Red Rocks in June - Reverb

Can’t Hardly Wait: Big Head Todd and Barenaked Ladies at Red Rocks this summer

It wouldn’t be summertime in Morrison if longtime Colorado favorites Big Head Todd and the Monsters weren’t playing Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

And yes, the locals – who first struck radio gold with “Bittersweet” in the early ’90s – have another Red Rocks date planned for 2012.

Todd Park Mohr and the gang will headline Red Rocks on June 9 – with the Barenaked Ladies in support. These shows are as much about the music as they are about the reunion factor; Large groups of friends getting together for familiar music and shared experiences, year after year. It’s a testament to the staying power of Big Head Todd and the Monsters, who have released material consistently since their “Sister Sweetly” heyday.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
