Here are the tickets on sale this week: Childish Gambino, OneRepublic and more.
Chelsea Handler — 10 a.m., Jan. 10, $59.50-$69.50
Chelsea Handler makes a splash anywhere she tours these days, thanks in part to a multimedia empire that includes her late-night comedy show “Chelsea Lately,” her numerous bestselling books and a stand-up career that brings her back to Denver on April 11 for a show at the Bellco Theatre at the Colorado Convention Center. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 17. ($59.50-$69.50, Ticketmaster)
Pink Floyd Experience — 10 a.m., Jan. 10, $27.50-$30
It’s the year of legal weed in Colorado, so why not welcome back the Pink Floyd Experience tribute act, given its source material’s association with all things psychedelic? The band plays the Boulder Theater on March 13. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 10. ($27.50-$30, bouldertheater.com)
Black Lips — 10 a.m., Jan. 11, $15.75-$19
Garage-rock pranksters the Black Lips will return to Denver for an April 2 show at the Bluebird Theater, with opener the Coathangers ($15.75-$19). Also announced for the Bluebird this week: Denver jam band Yamn (say that phrase four times fast) will celebrate the release of its new album with a March 14 concert. Tickets for both are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 11. (axs.com)
Candyland, Kill Paris — 10 a.m., Jan. 11, $20.75
Candyland has remixed the Kill Paris song “Slap Me,” so a tour that pairs the jumpy California electronic artists makes sense. Both straddle genres like drum and bass, house and dubstep, so expect a bit of cross-pollination when the acts play the Ogden Theatre on March 14. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 11. ($20.75, axs.com)
OneRepublic — 10 a.m., Jan. 10, $38.50-$42.50
On-sale reminder: Passes for Denver-based pop-rock act OneRepublic’s May 28 headlining date at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, with the Script, are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 10. ($38.50-
Bennie Maupin — on sale, $25
In jazz, a multireedist is a musician who plays saxophone, flute, clarinet and other woodwind instruments with equal skill. But next time you hear the term, just think of Bennie Maupin, the 73-year-old Detroit native and living jazz legend who has played with the best of them — including Miles Davis on “Bitches Brew.” Tickets for Maupin’s Jan. 11 all-ages set at Dazzle Jazz are on sale. ($25, dazzlejazz.com)
Childish Gambino — 10 a.m., Jan. 10
Childish Gambino, a.k.a. NBC’s “Community” co-star Donald Glover, will return to the area with an April 29 concert at the Fillmore Auditorium. Tickets are on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 10.
