In another sign that Billy Strings is launching into the stratosphere, for the first time he will be headlining the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, and not just for one date, but for two. On Thursday, May 12 and Friday, May 13, Billy Strings will hold court from the Red Rocks stage in what is sure to be a sought-after ticket, and the two days before the Turnpike Troubadours will play their own two-day Red Rocks residency. .
If you’re thinking, “Wait, haven’t I seen Billy Strings at Red Rocks before?” You can very well have. It’s not that Billy hasn’t played at Red Rocks until now. He shared the stage with Greensky Bluegrass there in 2019, then in September 2020 Strings played a monster 3-set performance from the Red Rocks stage. However, this was in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and there was not a soul in the stands, only a film crew to broadcast the event. This will be the first time that real fans will be present for a headlining show.
Speaking of live streams, Billy also just announced that he’ll be offering live streams of his upcoming four-night residency at New York’s Capitol Theater from February 3-6, which he’s dubbing “Deja Tu: The Return to the ESP Experiment”. Tickets are available at live.fans. They’re not particularly cheap ($19.99 a pop), but are a fair alternative for people who can’t be there in person, but need their Strings fix. Plus, Billy is one of the few artists whose livestreams are worth it. And of course, Strings will be accompanied by his incredible band consisting of banjoist Billy Failing, bassist Royal Masat and Jarrod Walker on mandolin.
And speaking of expensive tickets, as evidenced by Turnpike Troubadours fans, Tyler Childers fans, and pretty much everyone who’s tried to get Red Rocks tickets over the past couple of years, the demand for Billy Strings tickets Red Rocks will be incredibly fierce, as you will likely be elbowing with scalping bots in virtual benchmarks as well, then redirected to the reseller market by AXS where you will be presented with single tickets in the $600-$700 range. . So understand that nothing is certain to get tickets.
And last but not least, Billy Strings has also been confirmed to perform at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards on April 3 in Las Vegas. It is nominated in two categories, Best Blue Grass Album for Renewal and Best American Roots Performance for “Love and Regret”.
Tickets for Red Rocks go on sale Thursday, February 3 at 10 a.m. Mountain at AXS.com . Good luck!
