Celebrated Mexican acoustic rock duo Rodrigo y Gabriela return to the Front Range with a concert at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms in Littleton on Sunday, July 28 at 6:30 p.m.
Known for thrilling audiences worldwide with a stunning live show, the concert marks the duo’s return to the Front Range for the first time since their jaw-dropping Red Rocks appearance in August 2018.
Swallow Hill members will be emailed a presale code ahead of the general public on sale.
In their review of that concert, 303 Magazine marveled at how two musicians could make such a tremendous sound, while bending and blending genres with seeming ease: “The transition that the instrumentalists go through from rock to jazz to psychedelic and more continued to amaze the entire night, and it truly is spectacular what they are able to do with two people and just as many instruments.”
The duo’s summer tour will highlight music from their latest album, the three years in the making Mettavolution. The album is Rodrigo y Gabriela reborn, reaching for a higher state of consciousness, pushing themselves as writers, interpreters and players, and challenging us the listener to absorb, engage and respond to them.
Swallow Hill Music is excited to partner with AEG Live on what promises to be one of the most talked about concerts of the summer. This concert is not part of the Denver Botanic Gardens Summer Concert Series.
General public tickets go on sale Friday, March 15 at 10 a.m. Complete details can be found below. Thank you for supporting live music in Denver and beyond with Swallow Hill!
FULL EVENT DETAILS
Rodrigo y Gabriela at Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms
Sunday, July 28 at 6:30pm; $62.74
Five years since their last album, Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are ready to embark on the next chapter of their remarkable story, with the release of the most ambitious music of their twenty year career together.
Entitled Mettavolution, the white-hot new album brings together Rod and Gab’s shimmering, hummingbird flourishes and extraordinary engine room rhythm section, laser focused on melody, energy and beat. There is not an ounce of excess baggage on the fresh, dynamic tunes that Rod and Gab present here, which blend metal, jazz and Hispanic roots music in their own unique, unmistakable style
Through relentless touring and terrific word-of-mouth support, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as an in-demand live act, particularly in America, where they sold out the Hollywood Bowl (two nights) and Red Rocks as recently as summer 2018. They have also sold out multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Le Zenith in Paris and Radio City Music Hall in New York, not to mention venues in Australia, Japan and Europe. They are recognized by their fans and critics alike as being one of the top live touring acts in the world.
