Music Scene, July 7, 2017

A cowboy, a hippy, a surfer dude and a rock star walked onto a stage ...

Seriously — there’s no joking when it comes to the fusion of music styles you’ll hear when Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real perform on Tuesday, July 11, at the new Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park, 925 Struthers Ave. 

Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and El Camino Burnout and Clyde and the Milltailers will open the show.

The inaugural concert at the amphitheater features headliners Nelson (the son of legendary country singer Willie Nelson) and his band, a complementary mix of musicians from varied backgrounds who call their sound “Cowboy Hippy Surf Rock.”

Nelson and Promise of the Real drummer, Anthony LoGerfo, met in 2008 at a Neil Young concert. That meeting set into motion the forming of what would eventually be the band.

“As with all creative artists, Nelson’s course has been somewhat unpredictable,” says the show notes at monumentalevent.com.

“Though born to country music royalty, he has followed a different muse. Or, more accurately, he has introduced a bunch of muses to each other and locked them into an imaginary room to spend some wild time together.”

The new Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park offers seating on its grassy area. The Colorado River meanders in the background and spectacular views of Colorado National Monument, Grand Mesa, and the Bookcliffs are all around. Take chairs or blankets for seating. No tents or canopies are allowed. No food or beverages can be taken in. Food and beverages will be for sale at the event. Empty water bottles can be taken and filled at the venue.

General admission tickets to Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real are $19.50. VIP and reserved seating starts at $24.50. Tickets can be purchased online at MonumentalEvents.com, by phone at 800-626-TIXS, at the self-serve kiosk at Two Rivers Convention Center, or the Avalon Theatre box office.

What about parking? Cost is $10 to park in the amphitheater’s parking lot. GVT will also be making a stop at the venue. Edgewater Brewing, to the west, will also offer $10 parking to concert-goers. The cost includes two drink vouchers.
