Future announces tour, Denver arena show

He did them far better, glossing a few up with arena-worthy production. Future has announced a new headlining tour for 2017, including a Denver date. “Hotline Bling” cued a grid of plastic globes to hover over the rapper, glowing hot magenta and undulating mesmerizingly en masse like a pixilated wave; a gang of pyrotechnic hot spots shot tree-sized flames and sparks shot out of the floor with a gut-shaking “bang” on every other track.

Even through a jukebox, the upper half of Drake’s hit catalog could incite an R&B riot. Future performs at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on April 20, 2016. But unless you count Future as an accessory, whose 20 minutes amounted to little more than an expensive intermission, Drake largely kept the theatrics confined to his bleary-eyed verses. via altitudetickets.com. If that seems like a big stage for just Future to fill, you’d be right. That’s why he’s bringing Migos, Torey Lanez and Kodak Black along for the ride. Tickets go on sale Feb. The Nobody Safe Tour comes through Denver’s Pepsi Center on June 13. 17 at 12 p.m.
