Nathaniel Rateliff Announces Socially Distanced Concerts At Red Rocks
Nathaniel Rateliff will return to the stage for a series of five socially distanced concerts at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre between September 15 – 21. Capacity at the Morrison, Colorado venue will be limited to 175 attendees for the shows, which will be held on September 15, 16, 18, 19 and 21.
Kevin Morby is aboard as opener for all five concerts. “We want to get out there and play,” said Rateliff in a statement. “We feel so fortunate that Red Rocks is our hometown venue and look forward to having people at normal capacities in the future. But until that time it will feel great to make the best of the current situation, we want to get back to that live energy. These shows will be special for us, and hopefully the fans, as we will have our full production, custom light show and projections that were featured on the original tour that was unfortunately cancelled.”
Proceeds from the shows will benefit Rateliff’s The Marigold Project, a foundation dedicated to economic, racial and social justice. The capacity of 175 concertgoers will allow organizers to abide by local and state regulations put in place during the pandemic.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this Wednesday, September 9 at 10 a.m. MT via AXS.com. A lottery system has been put in place and a small allotment of “higher priced ticekts for guaranteed entry” will be available for the general admission show.
