Editor's Note: Following the publication of this article, which stated that ZHU was performing at Red Rocks twice in 2021, organizers went on to announce a total of six DREAMROCKS concerts. The article has been updated to reflect the newly announced shows.
The Grammy-nominated electronic music artist has announced a six-night Red Rocks run from May 3rd and 11th called DREAMROCKS. He will perform music from his new Dreamland 2021 album, which is scheduled to drop on August 30th, days before he touches down in Colorado.
The news arrives just one day after the announcement that Red Rocks will host concerts this summer at a reduced capacity of 2,500, citing the impact of COVID-19. The open air venue received approval from the state of Colorado to reopen for its 80th anniversary summer season and promised more announcements to come in the near future.
