The Top 5 Shows of 2018

I was fortunate enough to witness awe-inspiring, jaw dropping, mind-blowing music performances in Denver in 2018. Below is a brief summary:

  • St. Vincent stunned her audience dressed as a futuristic sadomasochistic superhero.
  • The Killers piled on the charm with the help of a gold suit and a confetti canon.
  • The lead singer from The Darkness jumped from a balcony into a sea of fans that “smelled like marijuana and saliva.”
  • Lyle LovettMargo Price, and Chris Stapleton renewed my faith in real Country Music.
  • The blue-eyed soul voices of St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Anderson East, and Allen Stone moved bodies, hearts, and minds.
  • Camp Cope and Against Me! belted-out feminist political punk refrains.
  • Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul inspired a crowd to worship at the Church of Rock and Roll.
  • Glen Hansard sang about lost souls, beat poets, and redemption.
  • Michael Franti jumped through a Red Rocks crowd spreading a mountain size heap of positivity.
  • Jack White proved once again why he is my Lord and Savior of Rock.
