Denver’s music scene rivals such cities as Los Angeles and New York, in terms of opportunities to catch live music. Coming from out of town, the sheer number of concerts is undoubtedly overwhelming, so to simplify things, Denver music experts at 303 Magazine have compiled a list of the must-see Denver shows. Many of these are exclusive to the region.
Oct. 25, 2023 — P!nk @ Ball Arena
P!nk returns to Ball Arena atop her newest album, "TRUSTFALL." The powerful pop singer and occasional acrobat is known for her high-flying stunts and vocal prowess live, oftentimes doing what few other singers will do. For her Oct. 25 show, time will tell what new trick she has up her sleeves.
Oct 26, 2023 - Marc Rebillet @ Red Rocks
The self-described “loop daddy” has a grand return to Red Rocks after his debut last year. Always raucous, wild and consistently out of pocket, it is Marc Rebillet who is the reason to hit Red Rocks during the spooky season. For someone who is basically a walking jump scare, it's only appropriate that it be him.
Oct 28, 2023 - Tale of Us @ Red Rocks
Tale of Us has exploded in recent years as one of the burgeoning faces of progressive techno and house fused with classical music with their emotionally evocative live shows and boundary-pushing visuals particularly when it comes to their "Afterlife" festival series. For fans of electronic music, this show has all the makings of an instant classic at the iconic venue.
Nov 2, 2023 - Lauryn Hill and The Fugees @ Ball Arena
Lauryn Hill is back on the road in a major way, celebrating the 25th anniversary of her landmark debut record, "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill." The hotly anticipated tour arrives with another major surprise as the Fugees, fresh off of their own reunion come through to share the bill, with Lauryn Hill pulling double duty on a show for the ages—talk about a blast from the past. As it were, with nostalgia on the menu, we can’t wait to dig into this one.
Nov. 3 & 4, 2023 - deadmau5 @ Red Rocks
Deadmau5 heads back to Red Rocks for his annual Day of the Deadmau5. Taking on the spooky vibrations of the post-Halloween high and bringing them into the dead of night at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre is always a blast and a great way to close out the Red Rocks concert season. Almost as iconic as his mouse head itself.
Nov 5, 2023 - Heilung @ Mission Ballroom
Heilung may have the most one-of-a-kind shows on the road right now. More of a ritual than anything remotely traditional, Heilung brings their European experimental folk music into a world of phantasmagorical lore, complete with intricate costumes and in a spellbinding and cryptic vision. Something this imaginative is damn near unmissable.
Nov 10, 2023 - Doja Cat @ Ball Arena
The rise of Doja Cat to the front of a new class of global superstars was unexpected but so very welcome. The edgy singer/rapper hasn’t done a proper solo tour since 2019, and the pent-up demand for her TikTok-fueled bangers is off the charts, or maybe it's on the charts since she’s basically ruled the Billboard Hot 100 for the past three years. Either way, Doja Cat has ascended to arena headliner and that said, based on her track record it's going to deliver and then some.
Nov 11, 2023 - DJ Snake @ Red Rocks
The ground is fixing to shake for DJ Snake and his full-throttle house and trap knockers. In terms of big-name DJs, DJ Snake is among the upper echelon of today and shows outside the club circuit are few and far between. It’s time to stop, drop, and “turn down for what” on Nov. 11.
Nov 13, 2023 - Lil Uzi Vert @ Fillmore Auditorium
One of rap music’s most provocative figures, Lil Uzi Vert comes front and center with an underplay at the Fillmore Auditorium, on the heels of their newest album, The Pink Album. Hard beats meet woozy crooning and angsty lyrics for a show that seemingly runs completely on unadulterated vitriol. Without a doubt, if you are in the pit, you’ll be swept up in a sweaty and exhilarating pit.
Nov. 16, 2023 — Depeche Mode @ Ball Arena
Synth-pop royalty Depeche Mode is returning to Denver for the first time since 2018. The band who brought massive hits like “Enjoy the Silence'' and “Precious” is making their long-awaited comeback sans founding member and keyboardist Andrew Fletcher. What better way to honor his legacy than reveling in his work in a sea of adoring fans and continuing forward with grace?
