Tribute to U2 Outdoor Event

Oct 23, 2020

8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

For those of us who grew up in the early 1980s, thank goodness for MTV. We caught a glimpse of four Irish boys by a canal and were blindsided by the present and future earnest power of their new single, Gloria.

We continued to be caught unaware of War and the singles that sounded like nothing else on MTV or the radio: Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year’s Day, Two Hearts Beat as One. And then there was the concert at Red Rocks, the stunning, epic show that put U2’s energy and heart on televisions across the country.

Had it ended there, we would still be talking about what a great band they were, but there were still new discoveries for them, asking questions, re-inventing their own music, and from that we received the albums The Unforgettable Fire, The Joshua Tree, and Rattle and Hum.

Gates open at 7:00 p.m. and be sure to bring your lawn chairs, a cooler, and even a Frisbee as the crowd social distances in the outfield grass. Touch-less temperature checks, and masks are required.
