It’s finally 2018—the perfect time to ring in the new year with your favorite artists in-person! The holiday celebrations may have wrapped up and several acts are definitely still recovering from monster sets, but this week still belongs to some of the biggest names in pop and hip-hop!
Denver and Houston could not be any more different cities, but on Sunday January 7th, they’ll both be just as loud! Katy Perry’s ready to bring the heat to H-Town’s Toyota Center on “Witness: The Tour” and all eyes are on the crowd this time around, with eye-inspired stage designs adorning the entire arena. Even with a brand new look, Perry is ever the show woman and plenty of props and theatrics are expected during hits like “Bon Apetit”, “California Gurls”, and “Teenage Dream”. Katy Perry’s new album “Witness” is out now on Capitol Records and “Witness: The Tour” is set to wrap up its North American Leg at Rogers Arena in Vancouver on February 6th.
Heading back north for a show that promises to be just as hot, folk-pop sensation Lana Del Rey has finally embarked on the “LA to the Moon Tour”—her first headlining venture since 2015’s “The End of Summer Tour”. After kicking off in Minneapolis, Del Rey makes her way into Denver’s Pepsi Center on Sunday, January 7th with her a mysterious show the singer-songwriter claims will feature “a lot of senses” and “beautiful structures that move in and out of the stage to give it a classic feeling.” Her new album, Lust for Life was released in July of 2017 and prominently displays the iconic blend of hip-hop grooves and undeniable Americana that launched Del Rey onto the scene. Singles like “Love”, “Ultraviolence”, and “Summertime Sadness” are guarantees, plus plenty more from a vast catalog over five albums.
