The good news: bands never seem to skip over Colorado when touring. The bad news: bands never seem to skip over Colorado when touring.

An overwhelming amount of concerts have been announced in the Denver area. With the rising ticket prices, it can be hard to pick and choose which ones to go to.

If any of the shows above end up selling out and money is an issue, sometimes your best bet is to wait until the day of concert to buy them on Stubhub when the prices are low. If you use this method, there is always the risk that tickets will go fast on the day of the show. If you want to stay safe, keep an eye out on Stubhub for cheaper tickets weeks prior to the concert.
