Big Head Todd/Collective Soul
Colorado's own Big Head Todd and the Monsters plays its annual Red Rocks Ampitheatre show on Saturday with special guest Collective Soul. BHTM has been playing its brand of bluesy rock since the mid-1980s. They moved on from the Colorado club circuit to constantly tour the U.S. while recording 11 studio albums, including 1993's "Sister Sweetly," which went platinum. Tickets start at $54.50 and were in short supply as of press time. This show is a favorite with the band's loyal fans and regularly sells out. But don't worry, BHTM has a free show in Winter Park on the 22nd if you miss this one.
