One highlight not included in the story is Neil Young’s return to Red Rocks, which was announced just this morning. The Canadian-born Godfather of Americana will be bringing his band Crazy Horse to the legendary venue on Aug. 5 and 6, with Alabama Shakes opening the show. (Read the Indy interview with Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard here.) Young and Crazy Horse will be releasing Americana, their first album in nine years, on June 5.
The shows are sure to be fast sellouts, so fans will want to be poised for action when tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. Grab them online at livenation.com or in person at the Fillmore Auditorium.
Meanwhile, Red Rocks has also announced an Aug. 9 date with emo-turned-dubstep overachiever Skrillex, tickets for which go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.
To celebrate the latter, here’s a video posted just yesterday of Skrillex being reviewed by little kids:
