As Denver has grown, so has its musical offerings. Residents can now enjoy world-class acts almost any night of the week throughout the city. Now comes yet another exciting option for music lovers.
In August, a brand new, state-of-the art venue will open at 4242 Wynkoop St. in Denver’s River North neighborhood. Dubbed the Mission Ballroom, the 60,000 square foot venue will include innovations sure to excite music aficionados and performers alike.
Chuck Morris CEO of AEG Presents Rocky Mountains, which will bring acts to the venue, sung its praises in a recent press release: “Mission Ballroom was designed with three core components that up to this point have not been fully integrated together in the club concert experience in the United States: flexibility in capacities, unrivaled sightlines and state of the art in house sound and lighting. Fans and bands will love it.”
The Mission Ballroom will accommodate 2,200 to 3,950 attendees, which is similar in size to Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium, according to the Denver Post. “Like the Fillmore, the Mission will feature wrap-around balconies and general admission standing room, as well as riser seating across the back and upper levels of the venue…,” notes the Post.
The article adds that the stage will be on trolleys, allowing it to move around based on crowd size and “meant to make smaller shows feel appropriately intimate.”
The first acts are already slated: The Lumineers (Aug. 7); Trey Anastacio’s band (Aug. 9-10); and Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals with Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue (Aug. 12).
