Widespread Panic, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pretty Lights shows announced

Another half dozen new shows were added to the Red Rocks schedule, including John Mayer, Paramore, STS9, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pretty Lights and Widespread Panic, who will be at the venue from Friday, June 25 through Sunday, June 27, a month after its eleventh studio album, Dirty Side Down, hits the streets. Tickets for the shows are $43 and go on sale Saturday, May 1 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Rodrigo y Gabriela, with openers Xavier Rudd and Izantaba, visit Red Rocks Friday, August 20. General and reserved tickets, which run from $39.75 to $49.75, go on sale Friday, April 23 at 10 a.m.

Over the past year, Pretty Lights has been selling out shows locally at the Ogden, Boulder Theater, Fox Theatre and the Aggie, as well as touring nationally and in Europe. So it's not surprising that Derek Vincent Smith, who performs under the Pretty Lights moniker along with drummer Cory Eberhard, is headlining Red Rocks on Saturday, August 7. General admission tickets for that one are $35 advance ($40 at the door) and go on sale Saturday, April 24 at 10 a.m.

Also on the Red Rocks tip, a second Rush show on Wednesday, August 18 was added to the trio's show on Monday, August 16, which went on sale last weekend. The second show goes on sale Saturday, April 24 at 10 a.m. and reserved seats run $59.50 to $114.50. The act is slated to perform its classic album, Moving Pictures, in its entirety on both nights.
