Barenaked Ladies, Gin Blossoms announce summer Red Rocks show

The "Last Summer on Earth 2020 Tour" is coming to the iconic Colorado venue on June 23.

MORRISON, Colo — Barenaked Ladies has announced a stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer as part of the band’s latest Last Summer on Earth Tour.

The Canadian rock band will be joined by Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket for a show at the venue on June 23, 2020.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out on the Last Summer On Earth Tour,” said Barenaked Ladies vocalist and guitarist Ed Robertson. “Having Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket out with us is going to be a blast. That’s a LOT of hits per night!”

A pre-sale for the Colorado concert starts Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday, Jan. 24 at 10 a.m. on AXS.com. They cost $45 to $90 plus service fees.

Each ticket purchased will include a digital download of Barenaked Ladies’ forthcoming album, which is due for release in May of 2020. 

This will be the 6th edition of the tour founded by the band in 2012 — the year that the Mayan calendar predicted would be the last, hence the “Last Summer On Earth.”
