Leftover Salmon Announces New Year’s Eve 2019 Concert


On December 31, Leftover Salmon will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their first show, the end of 2019 and the start of 2020 at Denver’s newly-opened Mission Ballroom. Leftover Salmon’s New Year’s Eve extravaganza will also feature Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and Lindsay Lou.

The band was formed on December 31, 1989 when members of Colorado’s Salmon Heads and Left Hand String Band teamed up under the Leftover Salmon moniker for a New Year’s Eve show at the Eldo in Crested Butte. The evening was such a success Leftover Salmon are still going strong 30 years later.

LoS’ Vince Herman shared a statement about the upcoming concert:

A long strange swim it’s been for salmon. Through many incarnations, losses, joys, festivals, bars, barns, mountains, rivers, oceans, benefits, weddings, and goat yoga sessions; we have kept the big ball rolling with a love of music and each other to keep ourselves plowing ahead the only way we know how. Thank you all for letting us have this much fun for so long. We are really excited to bring in the new year (and celebrate 30 years as a band) at home in Denver’s brand new Mission Ballroom, an absolute state of the art venue we hope to call home for years to come.

“So excited to celebrate this auspicious milestone at the fabulous new Mission Ballroom with friends, family, and so many fans that have supported us these thirty years!” Drew Emmitt added. “What an amazing journey this has been and continues to be!” A pre-sale starts this Thursday, August 15 at 10 a.m. MT using “BIGTOP” as the password. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, August 16 at 10 a.m. MT via AXS.
