- Formerly retired LCD Soundsystem make a stop at the 1st Bank Center on Nov. 11.
Fans of ‘90s and ‘00s alt-rock — and we know you’re out there — can take satisfaction in the fact that Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan will be paying a return visit to Colorado Springs. No, he won’t be bringing the rest of Tool along, since acts who can sell out the Pepsi Center tend not to play small-capacity venues. Nor will he be accompanied by his other band Puscifer, who played the Pikes Peak Center in 2016.
This time, you can catch Maynard with his other other band, A Perfect Circle, who’ll be hitting Colorado Springs as part of their first tour in six years. Tickets for their Oct. 23 Broadmoor World Arena appearance are on sale now.
In other concert announcement news, James Murphy will be bringing his formerly retired art-funk outfit LCD Soundsystem to the 1stBANK Center on Nov. 11, the Polish Ambassador will be doing a three-night run at the Boulder Theater Dec. 29-31, and, closer to home, P.O.S. will hit the Black Sheep on Oct. 20.
And finally, for devotees of 16 Horsepower, the Marquis Theatre has just announced that David Eugene Edwards will be bringing his current band WovenHand there on Aug. 31. Tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday, June 30.
For more on the statewide front, here are some notable shows taking place across Colorado in the weeks ahead:
