Rock Star Energy Drinks Mayhem Festival Set to Rock Colorado Next Week
Concert season is now in full force in Colorado. There are so many great shows coming our way this summer, it is hard to keep track of them all, but one that no one is forgetting is just a week away now… Mayhem Fest!
It’s kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around, but people are actually bitching about this year’s Colorado stop being moved to Red Rocks. Sure, we had to cut a few of the bands, and it’s not a venue that is not built for people to move around/mosh in. To me, it’s the greatest venue in the world, and I am happy to see the move.
Because of the space limitations, Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Trivium and Body Count (Ice-T’s metal band) were announced for Red Rocks, but those are the only bands playing that date so far, a divergence from Mayhem Fest’s tradition as a day-long show with multiple stages. There is a show called Rockstar Energy Drinks Taste of Mayhem that features the other bands on tour at the Fillmore this Sunday (July 13), the day before the big show at Red Rocks.
Mayhem officials said the decision to move Mayhem from its usual home at Fiddler’s Green to Morrison’s hallowed amphitheater was related to a scheduling conflict involving Avenged Sevenfold. To me, it’s an upgrade, and I am stoked to see two of the biggest bands out there at the best place in the world to watch a show!
Be listening to the Butch Show all this week (July 7-11) from 3-7 p.m. for your chance at winning FREE tickets to the show!
