Colorado Springs, Colorado—The eagerly awaited grand opening weekend of Colorado’s newest outdoor amphitheater has secured its headline act.
Hometown heroes OneRepublic are set to take the stage for the inaugural concert at the Sunset Amphitheater, currently under construction in northern Colorado Springs.
With an impressive capacity of 8,000 seats, this open-air venue is scheduled to kick off its first concert on Friday, August 9th, at the Polaris Pointe development near the Air Force Academy.
Constructed by Notes Live, the Sunset Amphitheater is the cornerstone of a $90 million entertainment complex designed to attract top-tier touring acts. Boasting state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities, a self-draining grass berm, and over 90 deluxe fire pit suites, this venue promises an unparalleled concert experience.
Nestled against the picturesque backdrop of Pikes Peak and flanked by the United States Air Force Academy stadium and iconic Air Force chapel, Sunset Amphitheater offers concert-goers a breathtaking vista.
Notes Live is gearing up to unveil the full lineup for Sunset’s inaugural season in the coming weeks. Collaborating with renowned concert promoter AEG Presents, the venue aims to become a premier destination for live entertainment in Colorado Springs and beyond.
Pre-sale registration for the grand opening concert featuring OneRepublic is now open, with general ticket sales commencing on Saturday, February 10th.
Founded in Colorado Springs in 2002, Grammy-nominated band OneRepublic comprises Ryan Tedder, Zach Filkins, Drew Brown, Brent Kutzle, Eddie Fisher, and Brian Willett.
The Sunset Amphitheater, first announced in April 2022, received final approval from the Colorado Springs City Council in January 2023.
According to Notes Live Founder and Chairman JW Roth, the development of venues like Sunset Amphitheater addresses the growing demand for live entertainment in rapidly expanding cities.
Partnering with Notes Live, AEG Presents Rocky Mountains Co-President and COO Brent Fedrizzi expressed excitement about bringing world-class artists to Colorado Springs and its surrounding areas.
Sunset Amphitheater marks another milestone in Notes Live’s mission to fill the void in “entertainment deserts” across the nation. Following the success of Boot Barn Hall, which opened in February 2019, the company continues to expand its footprint in Colorado Springs’ vibrant music scene.
