'Hottest comic in America' to headline Red Rocks show

The New York Times' "hottest comic in America" is hitting the road for a summer tour.

MORRISON, Colo. — The New York Times' "hottest comic in America" has announced his return to Colorado later this summer.

Sebastian Maniscalco will perform at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021.

Tickets for the all-ages Red Rocks show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 4 at AXS.com and by phone at 888-929-7849. Ticket prices range from $50 to $250.

After more than a year off the roads, Maniscalco's new "Nobody Does This Tour" launches in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium on June 12. The tour includes stops in New Orleans, Phoenix, Columbus, Ohio, and more.

Maniscalco’s tour itinerary also includes a number of rescheduled shows from 2020 that were moved due to the pandemic.

“I’ve been unable to share my comedy for over a year,” Maniscalco told Billboard. “I’m busting at the seams to get back out on the road and share my observations about life and family on this brand-new tour!”

Red Rocks reopened Thursday, April 22 with a capacity of 2,500 people. The venue increased capacity to 6,300 on Saturday, May 22. Concerts and events happening after June 21 will be sold at full capacity, which is 9,545 people.
