News: String Cheese Incident to play three nights at Red Rocks in JulyBy Ricardo Baca | March 1st, 2012 | 1 Comment »
It’s snowing in Denver, but the String Cheese Incident is thinking about sunny skies.
The Colorado-rooted jam band announced its summer tour this afternoon, and Colorado fans will be psyched about the location of the band’s multi-night stint in their hometown.
SCI will headline three nights at Red Rocks, according to its website. After Blues Traveler and Fitz & the Tantrums take over the Morrison amphitheater on July 4, they’ll pass the baton to SCI – who will headline Red Rocks on July 5-7.
Before the Red Rocks dates, SCI will be at the Electric Forest Festival in Michigan. After Red Rocks, they’ll play a couple dates on their way to Berkeley’s beloved Greek Theatre (July 14-15) and the SCI-favorite Horning’s Hideout (July 20-22) in North Plains, Ore.
The band is experimenting with service charge-free ticketing, noting that a $49.95 ticket to a Red Rocks show will cost just that, if ordered through the band’s website. According to a press release, the pre-sale begins Tuesday at 10 a.m., and the public on-sale will hit Ticketmaster at 10 a.m. March 10.
