Nearly a year ago, Bruno Mars had to bow out of his Pepsi Center gig because of doctor's orders, but he'll finally be back at the venue for two shows this weekend with Boyz II Men opening. STS9 takes over Red Rocks for two nights while Boy George & Culture Club, the B-52's and the Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey are at Fiddler's Green on Saturday. Dead Kennedys and Killing Joke, both celebrating fortieth anniversaries tonight, are at the Ogden Theatre and Oriental Theater, respectively. See our full picks below.
