More than a dozen Denver and Boulder-area concerts have been canceled or postponed over the last week, jostling the live-entertainment industry just as 2022’s concert calendar is beginning to firm up.
Despite an already-lengthy list of concerts confirmed for Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and more big names from Ball Arena to Broomfield’s FirstBank Center, the raging omicron variant and positive COVID-19 tests among touring artists and crews are threatening 2022’s desperately needed stage comeback.
That’s also been painful for ticket-holders, some of whom have seen the Lucinda Williams show in Boulder, for example, postponed and rescheduled no fewer than three times in the last five months. In some cases, cancellations are happening just days before the date (see the Friday, Jan. 14, and Saturday, Jan. 15, Hot Water Music shows at the Bluebird Theater).
They follow similarly last-minute cancellations for Denver New Year’s Eve shows from artists such as My Morning Jacket, Fear and Crumb, and scuttled events including the Jan. 6 National Western Stock Show Parade (attributed to weather).
Here’s the roundup for this week, listed by first-announced dates and followed by the new ones, where available. This list will be updated through Friday, Jan. 14. Refunds for most shows are available at the point of purchase or offered via email — although some sellers only offer a 30-day window for requests, while others automatically credit your account for the purchase price.
