Colorado summer concert guide 2014: Beck, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John and more

Much like a broken string, an improvised drum fill or the impulsive stage dive, weather brings an unexpected ingredient to live music. Rain, wind, mud, snow, relentless heat or cold, even clear skies can define the art. Performers and crowds adapt to unexpected forces, and it becomes a unique shared experience. The sun setting during an acoustic ballad, the rain drenching a sweaty dance party, these aren’t staged theatrics — they’re real.

Summer is a return to this natural element of music. And in Colorado, fans emerge from the dim rock clubs and artificially lit arenas to see musicians in plains, under skylines, in forests, below mountain ranges and between great monoliths. To help you navigate the next few months of live music, we give you our heavily curated guide to concerts across Colorado this season.

This list overwhelming? See our picks of the 10 best concerts in Colorado this summer here.

    I’m surprised there is not mention of any festivals! UMS, Westword, Denver Day of Rock, Taste of Fort Collins are just a few that come to mind. Why not make a list of the fests happening in CO this Summer?
