The fall air has just barely set in, but anyone who's visited Colorado's legendary stage knows there's no place like Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the summertime, and it's never too early to hear about next year's programming. Fans of Twiddle and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong can rejoice with the latest news – on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 both acts will co-headline a special show at the famed outdoor venue. Kitchen Dwellers will offer support on the bill.
"What's really cool about this show is that we and the Pigeons have been friends and playing together for years when we were drawing 200 people and now, 5 years later, we are headlining Red Rocks together," shares Twiddle's Mihali Savoulidis. Given the intertwined history of the two bands, fans can expect a collaborative nature during the upcoming Red Rocks date. This will be Twiddle's second time headlining the stage, with their first headlining appearance taking place earlier this year.
"Words cannot express our excitement to play Red Rocks again," adds PPPP frontman, Greg Ormont. "Not only do we get to rock out at one the best venues in the world, but we get to do it alongside our longtime friends Twiddle. We've played some shows in Colorado together before, but co-headlining at Red Rocks is the next level. We're super grateful for the opportunity and beyond ready for this dream to come true." This will be PPPP's debut headlining slot at Red Rocks. Last summer, they made their first appearance on the stage when they offered support for moe.
