LAUV - Bluebird Theater, 3317 E Colfax Ave, Denver CO 80206
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - Ogden Theatre, 935 E Colfax Ave, Denver CO 80218
Signed first to Factory Records and then snapped up by Virgin, the duality inherent in OMD was plain to see from the start, as Peter Saville’s minimalist artwork belied the warmth of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys’ timeless songwriting. Described by The Quietus as “not just one of the best synth bands ever – they are one of the best bands ever”, OMD’s influence has become ubiquitous. The xx, the Killers and LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy have cited OMD as an inspiration, and the likes of Future Islands and Chvrches show traces of OMD’s DNA.
Tokio Hotel - Gothic Theatre, 3263 S Broadway, Englewood CO 80113
International superstars Tokio Hotel are taking the music world by storm. After scoring four number one singles, two number one albums, and selling nearly 3 million CDs and DVDs in their homeland, they've become the biggest act to come out of Germany in 20 years. And to think their first CD was recorded when the members were only 13 to 15-years-old. Breaking down cultural walls, the Tokio Hotel phenomenon has crossed language barriers, causing a tornado-like frenzy in Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, Russia and Israel. In Austria and Switzerland, Tokio Hotel have gone four times Platinum and in France, they've had a crowd of 500,000 chanting along to their songs in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Walk the Moon - Ogden Theatre, 935 E Colfax Ave, Denver CO 80218
Ohio’s WALK THE MOON have been captivating audiences with their energetic live shows for the better part of a decade. The band first made a name for themselves by touring relentlessly in support of their self-titled debut, which featured the indie classic “Anna Sun.” The alt-rock-pop quartet were then catapulted into the spotlight when 2014’s “Shut Up and Dance” became a multi-platinum global smash, crossing sonic barriers to top three different Billboard charts. After two years of performing countless sold out shows in twenty five countries across five continents, the band returned to the studio to craft their third major label release, 2017’s What If Nothing. The new album shows the band simultaneously at their most epic and their must vulnerable, a daring step forward both musically and lyrically.

With the help of the other girls in the Orphanage, Annie escapes to the wondrous world of NYC.

In August, SABATON will once again command the troops on the holy grounds of Rockstad Falun Festival - aka Sabaton Open Air - when the band hosts their own three day festival - closing the last day with an explosive performance. Then, later this year, SABATON's sight will be directed at the USA, where the band is a doing huge tour and also performing at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest Festival in California, alongside BLACK SABBATH, SLIPKNOT and others.
