Colorado tickets on sale: Stephen King, the Weeknd and more

Here are the Colorado tickets going on sale — Stephen King, the Weeknd, Thirty Seconds to Mars and more.

Stephen King — Chautauqua, $37.50, Friday

Stephen King’s Colorado connections are well-publicized, given that the 65-year-old bestselling horror author lived in Boulder while writing the first draft of his 1977 masterpiece “The Shining” — the setting of which was based on Estes Park’s ultra-creepy Stanley Hotel. So it’s fitting that King is stopping by Boulder’s Chautauqua Auditorium on Sept. 25 to discuss his upcoming book “Doctor Sleep,” the sequel to “The Shining.” Tickets for the event are on sale at 1 p.m. Friday. ($37.50, tickets.chautauqua.com)

Thirty Seconds to Mars — Fillmore Auditorium, $39.50, Saturday

It’s become clear that Thirty Seconds to Mars, actor Jared Leto’s emo-pop band, isn’t going away anytime soon, so in the spirit of sullen acceptance and clear-eyed acknowledgment of reality, we’re praying that new album “Love Lust Faith + Dreams” contains a legit earworm or two. Tickets for the band’s Oct. 8 concert at the Fillmore Auditorium, part of the group’s fall North American tour, are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($39.50, livenation.com)

Locura Festival — Fiddler’s Green, $19-$89, Friday

With its mix of ’90s grunge, alt-rock, metal and the more recent descendants of those genres, KBPI’s inaugural Locura Festival contains a wide spectrum of hard rock. The two-day event at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre will feature Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Volbeat, HIM, Halestorm, All That Remains, Coheed and Cambria Circa Survive, Airbourne, Walking Papers, Danko Jones, Middle Class Rut, New Politics, Dead Daisies, Beware of Darkness, Attika 7, Texas Hippie Coalition, Lola Black, Charming Liars and more. Tickets for the Sept. 1-2 festival are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. ($19-$89, livenation.com)

The Weeknd —1stBank Center, $35-$45, Friday

Abel Tesfaye, a.k.a. the Canadian electro-R&B artist and producer the Weeknd is picking a relatively large venue for his first visit to Colorado. Tesfaye will play Broomfield’s 6,500-seat (depending on the setup) 1stBank Center on Sept. 20 as part of a North American tour behind new album “Kiss,” with openers Anna Lunoe and Banks. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. ($35-$45, TicketHorse)

Super Diamond — Ogden Theatre, $22.50, Saturday

Super Diamond, the long-running Neil Diamond tribute band that enjoys Diamond’s blessing and roughly the same fans as Jimmy Buffet (think rainbow afro wigs and lots of tequila shots), will return to the Ogden Theatre on Sept. 28, with tickets on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday. ($22.50, axs.com)

Lisa Marie Presley — Bluebird Theater, $25-$30, Saturday

Lisa Marie Presley — yes, that Lisa Marie Presley — will play a rare show at the Bluebird Theater on Sept. 5, and for $125-$130 you can meet her and snap a photo. For the rest of us, tickets, which are on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, are $25-$30. (axs.com)
