This summer, Third Eye Blind, Jimmy Eat World and Ra Ra Riot will head out on the 35-city Summer of God tour, which will hit Levitt Pavilion in June.

The concert offers a taste of the kinds of shows Levitt might be able to attract, now that entertainment giant Live Nation is involved in booking national acts for the nonprofit.

As for Third Eye Blind, the band is looking forward to taking its show outside.

"The most scintillating, inspiring, collective moments of my life have been outdoors in the summer exploding with music," writes Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins in a statement. "I seek to create that exact blissed-out state of aliveness on tour this summer."

Jenkins has a deep love for the ocean, and Third Eye Blind, which is committed to environmentally friendly touring, has quit using water bottles and will donate money to environmental groups in an attempt to offset the ecological impact of travel. Those organizations include ClimeCo, the American Land Conservancy and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

"Music and surfing are all foundational in my life, and the longer I go, the more so it is not a big step to seek to make our tours ocean-friendly," adds Jenkins. "Simple — skip single-use plastic, carbon offsets, and encourage others along the way."

The Denver concert will take place June 22. Tickets go on sale starting February 1 at Live Nation's website
