Lotus NYE in Boulder


Lotus, who just appeared on the cover of Pollstar Magazine as one of today's hottest touring acts, will wrap up a stellar 2008 with two nights at Colorado's Fox Theatre on December 30 and 31. On December 30, DJ Harry will open, and for NYE, Pretty Lights kick things off.

^ i have to completely agree, and i also really enjoy lotus. that's freakin' ridiculous... let's compare and contrast - i just got my panic ticket for the 31st at the pepsi center for $65.

sven - that $47.40 is with charges. but still, NYE, at a venue that is intimate for Lotus on NYE, $40 + fees makes sense.

while most NYE Shows are generally about double, and I don't think $50 is tooo outrageous. point taken regarding the comparison of Panic+YMSB for $65. something to note, Panic on 30th is the same price as NYE.. Too bad it's sold out, I was gonna drive from Columbus, OH.

This makes me feel better about paying $70 for Zappa Plays Zappa and Les Claypool

the money is worth it because I imagine that Lotus rages all NYE night. Crystal Method plus other DJ's is only $30 which seems to be a steal.

I believe its only $40 for NYE if you get it at the box office.

In a Time of 'economic crisis' its a good thing that they are sticking it to the little guy with $50 NYE shows. thanks lotus, hope you don't miss out on making maximum profits from these shows. happy new years

Look at these NYE prices:

STS9 - 67.50

Disco Biscuits - 69

UM - 63/73

DSO - 79

47 for Lotus seems right.

Yeah, you gotta expect to drop at least $40-50 for almost any NYE show. Everybody wants to go out and rage a show so there is a huge demand. Heck, I'm seeing Grace Potter in VT and even that is close to $50 with charges. You know you're gonna see a kick ass show with the band pulling out all the stops. As far as Lotus goes, sure they're shows are typically only $15-20 tops but they definitely deserve more for the caliber of music they have been producing recently.

What!sven2388?..$50 for lotus *NYE* in friggin Boulder, Colorado...if you have the means to get there my strange-minded friend, you'd be crazy to miss it. Seriously, look at those other prices for NYE shows danceattack just posted..if you care[not you in particular, sven and other haters, but anyone else who might give a damn to read these silly posts like me..it's so much fun...;)], the best NYE for me, as I'm only 25 and missed too much of the Phish shows and of course the Grateful Dead, was hands down Sea of Dreams in San Francisco 2006 with String Cheese headlining and BASSNECTAR rockin so hard you could feel the trip through the walls during cheese....such fucking sweet memories...hope another fellow attendee shares my flashback :) Oh, and since we better all be LOTUS fans writing here, can I just say #8 on Hammerstrike is sooo fucking great, in comparison with their recent live release on sargasso sea with Mikesnack!! FUCK YEAH LOTUS...don't know where I'll even be living for NYE this time around...baby's graduating and I'm following him wherever he lands a job. Happy show hunting freaks :p

hell yeah easterluke, 8 is badass on hammerstrick, as is 10. 50 for lotus isnt bad at all though, they are fuckin amazing. id definately pay for that. but compared to all of those NYE prices i have a steal, paying only around 32 bucks after service charges and shit. grant you ill end up paying much much more with the travelling and what not but still awesome price

I got my Lotus NYE tickets months ago! I'd much rather spend $50 to rage it at the Fox than $65 to stand in stiff arena seats at the Pepsi Center. The Fox is gonna be siiiiiiick

If you were in Boulder for their two night run at the Fox, you know how raging NYE is going to be... and it's going to be dumping snow. More reason to get out to Colorado.

Man, Cheese in 2006 was honestly night and day compared to 2007. Bassnectar's set in 2006 after Cheese was grimy as hell.

since yonder isn't doing their 3 night run at the fillmore this year i decided to check out lotus at the FOX (one of the best intimate venues everrr) for nye and yonder on the 28th (just added, yonder under their pseudonym cosmic bowling league with darol anger it's gonna be sickkk) and 29th at the ogden. pepsi center acoustics suck and i would rather be front row at the fox than in the nosebleeds at pepsi. and the new lotus album is killer!!
