Oh, man, November is going to be, ahem, Boss. The biggest news this week, if you haven't heard yet, is that Bruce Springsteen is bringing the E Street Band back to the Mile High City for a show at the Pepsi Center in November. Hang on, though, there's a reason they call it Rocktober. We've also got shows from Waka Flocka Flame, Chevelle and Natalie Cole in that month. Oh, and lest we leave out September, Bryan Adams is slated to appear at the Paramount. Several of these shows go on sale this weekend. Page down for the full rundown.
