The Walkmen to play free Breckenridge show in support of ObamaBy John Hendrickson | September 27th, 2012 | No Comments »
The Walkmen will play a free concert in Breckenridge on the eve of the first presidential debate in support of the Obama-Biden campaign, Reverb has learned.
The Tuesday night concert at Breckenridge’s Riverwalk Center appears to be a fly-in date for the band, which is currently scheduled to play Mr. Small’s in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Sunday and Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club on Thursday and Friday, with no western dates in between.
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning Sept. 27 for those who register at my.barackobama.com.
The Walkmen last played Colorado in July in support of Florence + the Machine at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Wells Fargo Theatre.
The Oct. 2 free show comes one night before DebateFest — a free concert at the University of Denver featuring the Lumineers, Nathaniel Rateliff and Zach Heckendorf — in the hours before the first presidential debate.
