Anyone who’s lived through the various genre revivals of the past decades can attest to the adage that all things old become new again. This spring has shown that this is true not only of the genre landscape, but also the physical musical landscape, as Denver’s Marquis Theater and Summit Music Hall are undergoing renovations.

Hot on the heels of the April announcement that AEG Presents is building a new Denver mega-venue called the Mission Ballroom, the entertainment company’s competitor Live Nation — who acquired the iconic Summit in February of this year — has announced that “significant, transformative renovations” are due for the venue during the summer.

Among the promised upgrades to the Summit are increased capacity (to hold 1350 patrons, up from 1100), an upgraded sound system, improved sightlines, new and expanded restrooms, cosmetic upgrades, and new dressing rooms and “accoutrements” for artists. The venue will be shut down from June 21 through early September, while the Marquis Theater will close from July 2 to Aug. 12 while its own improvements are made. (But don’t worry, you can still stuff your face with Marquis Pizza uninterrupted.)

If you’re wondering what awaits when the Summit reopens its doors on Sep. 6, well, it’s STS9. The Californian electronic collective will play the venue on the eve of a two-night stint at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, kicking off an eclectic autumn line-up at the Summit that will include appearances from Stones Throw, Against Me!, GWAR, The Dan Band, Lily Allen, and many more — hey, even Lil Xan is coming to town.
