ICP’s Gathering of the Juggalos 2017 is no longer Colorado bound

But if you’re going to the Gathering regardless, Miller teased that the location for this year’s event has been narrowed down to two places, and will be announced “likely this week or next week.”
It might sound like a miracle, but all hope isn’t completely lost for future Gatherings in Colorado. The group’s Gathering of the Juggalos festival is no longer coming to Colorado. Miller said that it’s possible that the event could still come to Colorado at some point in the future, provided they’re able to find the right grounds for it. “It sucks.”
That’s bad news for Denver’s Insane Clown Posse fans. “But all the obvious places aren’t big enough.”
Who knows if and when the Gathering might come to Colorado. That insane clown dream has now ended. “We announced last year we were going to try to do it in Colorado, but we weren’t able to find any grounds in Colorado that could do it,” Miller said in a phone interview on Monday. “If someone out there has a property with several hundred acres and is open to hosting the Gathering, yeah, absolutely” it could come to Colorado, Miller said. Colorado is no longer in contention for this year’s Gathering, according to Jason Miller, the director of publicity for Insane Clown Posse’s Psychopathic Records. The label first announced the news in a recent episode of its podcast. Last year, we and other local outlets reported that the Insane Clown Posse’s Gathering of the Juggalos festival was set to hit Colorado in 2017.

Hanson is (somehow) turning 25, and it’s coming to Denver to celebrate

You probably have a vague memory of the youngest of the brothers in the 1990’s pop band Hanson as both a weird Jonathan Taylor Thomas knockoff and way too young to be on MTV. What’s even crazier is that the Tulsa, Okla. (If you really want tickets to this thing, be advised that there are literally five pre-sales for this show, which you can find info for on Summit Music Hall’s website.)
For the Hanson super fans among us, there’s also a Hanson afterparty proceeding the show. Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson, and John Popper at Red Rocks, July 4, 2015. That means that, despite Zac himself being 31 right now, the band is marking its 25th anniversary this year. Yep, drummer Zac Hanson was just 12 years old when “MMMBop” forever changed the landscape of pop music / spawned at least one amazing Nirvana t-shirt. band started in 1992, when Zac was just seven years old. 14. (Here’s hoping this doesn’t kill the street cred Soda Jerk Presents has built up with all those punk and metal shows.) Tickets are $40-$45 and go on sale on March 18 at 10 a.m. Naturally, they’re playing the Summit Music Hall. The brothers Hanson will come through Denver on Oct. That sounds like a lot, but if you’ve always dreamed of sharing tasting notes on MMMHops, the band’s very own beer, it’s a small price to pay. And it wouldn’t be a true national music venue victory lap if they didn’t stop in Denver.

Brad Paisley announces Denver concert

Tickets are $29.50 – $74.50 and go on sale March 17 at 10 a.m. Brad Paisley has added a handful of new shows to his 2017 tour, including a date in Denver. Brad Paisley, the Band Perry and Scott McCreery brought a taste of Nashville to the Pepsi Center on Sunday. With showmanship this good, who needs a quarterback cameo? Paisley then skipped across stage in a breezy rendition of “Ticks” — without as much as a second breath. Sporting an “Energizer” T-shirt and his classic white Serratelli hat, Paisley made entertaining an arena full of rabid fans seem like a cool cakewalk. The country rocker will come to the Pepsi Center on July 15. On “The World,” Paisley ripped through a dizzying guitar solo like Jeff Beck.   MST via altitudetickets.com. Photos by Karson Brown, heyreverb.com. Dustin Lynch, Chase Bryant and Lindsay Ell will perform in support. Switching from acoustic to electric mid-song on “This Is Country Music,” Paisley even tossed his guitar into the crowd to one lucky fan. Paisley last came to Denver in 2012, playing the Pepsi Center with a hologram of Carrie Underwood and a guest verse from Tim Tebow himself, back in the heyday of the (mercifully dead) trend of “Tebowing.” Our writer Kristopher Coe had this to say about that show:
No one has laid this groundwork better than Brad Paisley.

Paul Simon announces tour, Red Rocks concert

6, 2015, in New York. A sweet spot in the show was the band’s abbreviated instrumental rendition of the wistful “El Condor Pasa” (“If I Could”) from “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” released in 1970. via axs.com. Simon will play Red Rocks on June 28. The hauntingly simple song provided evidence that Simon had leaned toward world beat all along. (Photo by Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)
Legendary songwriter Paul Simon is going on tour in 2017, including a date at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tickets $49.50 – $139.50 and go on sale Mar 17 at 10 a.m. Check out our feature on Simon’s longtime producer Roy Halee, who lives in Boulder, here. Here’s what the Know writer Colleen Smith said of that show:
Simon’s staying power owes not only to his poetry, philosophy, social commentary, negotiations and confessional love songs, but also his eclectic world music band. Players performed on drums galore, zydeco washboard and squeezebox, multi-cultural percussive instruments, brass and flutes. The Lovin’ Spoonful opened that show. Simon last played Colorado in 2016 at the Bellco Theatre. The show marks Simon’s second solo appearance at Red Rocks, having played two nights there in 1991. Musician Paul Simon participates in the Country Music Hall of Fame benefit concert at PlayStation Theater on Tuesday, Oct. His first-ever show at the venue was with Simon & Garfunkel in July 1967.
