Rodrigo y Gabriela and Colorado Symphony announce a Red Rocks show

Rodrigo y Gabriela have always shared a love of strings. Listen to any of the duo’s guitar-focused material, and you’ll hear an affinity for string compositions.

And so it’s no surprise that the duo will be headlining one of its biggest shows ever this summer with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra as its backing band.

Rodrigo y Gabriela and Colorado Symphony will take over Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 28, the band announced today on its website. Surely the show will play somewhat heavily on its latest release “Area 52,” which was recorded in Havana with a 13-piece Cuban orchestra.

A pre-sale for the Red Rocks show starts Tuesday at 10 a.m. MT with the password RYG2013 – offering fans a bit of a jump on the general public onsale, which starts at 10 a.m. Saturday on Ticketmaster.
