Big Head Todd and the Monsters mark the 20th anniversary of “Bittersweet” at Red Rocks with Trombone ShortyBy Matt Miller | January 18th, 2013 | 2 comments
For any young musicians growing up in Colorado, Red Rocks sits on top of a pedestal — both literally on top of a mountain and figuratively as the greatest venue in the region, if not the whole country. This must make it all the more sweeter for Big Head Todd and the Monsters, the hometown boys with a large Rocky Mountain following, to return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer — a venue the band has sold out seven times.
The band most recently played the venue (and sold it out) in June of 2012 with the Barenaked Ladies and returns this year for a headlining show with Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue. This show is a 20th anniversary show of Big Head’s 1993 platinum album, “Sister Sweetly.”
The show is June 8 and tickets will be on sale Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. through ticketmaster.com.
Reverb Managing Editor Matt Miller has a Twitter account that he uses fairly often, but not often enough to be annoying.
