A week after his Denver concert, Billboard chart-buster Post Malone, whom Westword's Leslie Wilber described as the Cheesecake Factory of music and a reader likened to an animated old gym sock, just announced he will return to Denver this spring.
Malone is an unlikely radio god — a hip-hop artist who has derided hip-hop, a man who has at once rejected conventional beauty while embracing addictive pop-music tropes that have built him a swooning fan base.
He's brutishly masculine, but emo. And as Wilber tells it, he puts on a spectacular show.
He will be joined in Denver by Swae Lee and Tyla Yaweh at the Pepsi Center on March 12.
Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday, November 22, at Live Nation.
