By early June, Denver will long be in the rearview for the Black Keys dudes, who'll play here on Monday, April 30. Too bad. It would've been sweet-ass sweet to witness a good old-fashioned battle royale for ultimate supremacy between them and the Nickelback dudes to settle this whole "rock and roll is dying" business. For we've just learned that on that day, Sunday, June 10, the biggest rock band in the world will be making its way to the Pepsi Center with Bush and My Darkest Days as part of an ongoing global quest to destroy rock and roll once and for all. Tickets for the show go on sale next Saturday, January 21.
