Documentary on renowned Colorado promoter Barry Fey in the works

Through his Feyline promotion company, Fey booked tens of thousands of concerts and events from the 1960s through his retirement in 1997, bringing the likes of the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Jimi Hendrix and many others to Colorado venues. Fey died by suicide in 2013. A prolific promoter, Fey is often credited with putting Colorado’s music scene on the map. Legendary Colorado concert promoter Barry Fey is the subject of an upcoming music history documentary. A documentary on Barry Fey, the colorful promoter who made Colorado a destination for the biggest names in music, is in the works.   The movie, which is still filming, doesn’t have a projected release date.

Ween announces first Red Rocks show in eight years

Yet another came when everyone sang along happily to “Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down).” If the thought of thousands of fans delighting in the throes of a debilitating disease isn’t the height of irony, then I don’t know what is.

The Know’s Billy Thieme wrote this in a review of the band’s 2009 Red Rocks show:
The show reached a few clear apexes, one of which was the aforementioned “Zoloft,” during which the crowd sang lazily, as if all were on the drug. BROOMFIELD, CO – FEBRUARY 12: Gene Ween and Dean Ween of Ween perform at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado on February 12, 2016. Tickets are $49.95 – $54.95 and go on sale Feb. Ween last played Red Rocks in 2009, three years before they broke up, only to reunite again last year, launching a much-hyped reunion at Broomfield’s FirstBank Center.

Ween has announced a brief run of 2017 tour dates, including a show at Morrison’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. 3 at 10 a.m. Ween proved that they are masters of the manipulative powers of their sarcastic rock, and can easily entrance any audience. The cult rock legends will play Red Rocks on July 12. Check out photos from the first show of Ween’s 2016 reunion here.
