Blues Traveler and moe. Celebrate Independence Day at Red Rocks
Blues Traveler played their annual July 4th concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The show is a tradition that goes back to 1992, and the band has a history of bringing special guest openers and playing interesting setlists for the occasion.
moe. were enlisted to play this year’s opening set (they also performed at the Boulder Theater the previous night), and the group was joined by Blues Traveler’s John Popper and Ben Wilson for “Crackers” and “Plane Crash.” Blues Traveler then headlined the night, playing a the entirety of their 1993 album Save His Soul over the course of the show, though not in order.
