T-Pain is currently on a U.S. tour after collaborating with Young Cash on the recent album The Bluez Brothaz, while Akon's been playing a handful of shows after releasing TT Freak last year. Of course, the Grammy winners are best known for their contributions to early-2000s hip-hop: It's hard to listen to Akon's "Smack That" and T-Pain's "Buy U a Drank," among other songs, without having a strong flashback to middle-school dances or sweaty clubs.

Now you can see the artists perform such hits live — and you can be sure they'll play their collaboration, "Bartender." Tickets to the Red Rocks concert go on sale via AXS on Friday, June 14, at 10 a.m.
