Pretty Lights In Beautiful Telluride, CO August 28 & 29 At Telluride Town Park
March 2, 2015
TELLURIDE, CO (March 2, 2015) – Pretty Lights will be playing two special outdoor shows at Colorado’s Telluride Town Park this summer. The concerts will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 28 and 29.
“I’ve thought a lot about what a perfect place to throw a Pretty Lights concert might be, and what that actually means. I think that Telluride Town Park might be a place like that. The energy that resonates there is beyond the cusp of my own understanding but it is powerful and undeniable. I think that the seclusion of Telluride creates a real opening to focus on getting in touch…with each other, ourselves, and the vibrations we experience as music, light, and life.
PLUS the stars shine incredibly bright and the mountains are jaw dropping.
These two nights in Telluride will be an awesome and historic opportunity to experience a live Pretty Lights show in what may be the perfect venue,” said Pretty Lights’
Derek Vincent Smith.
Two-day General Admission and VIP tickets as well as camping and travel packages will be available via Pretty Lights’ direct-to-fan pre-sale, which begins on Friday, February 20, at 10:00 AM MST at http://prettylights.frontgatetickets.com/. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, February 27, at 10:00 AM MST at http://www.axs.com/events/271815/pretty-lights-tickets. VIP and travel experiences are being offered by CID Entertainment.
The Denver Post’s Hey Reverb praised the second evening of Pretty Lights’ two-night stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO as “exactly the kind of visual and aural spectacle that sets Pretty Lights apart in the live music milieu… a milestone show.” The 2014 concerts marked the fifth consecutive year that Pretty Lights sold out the legendary venue. The year-end BassLights 2014 concerts co-headlined by Pretty Lights and Bassnectar at Hampton Coliseum in Virginia were also sold out.
Pretty Lights is currently in the studio, working on the follow up to 2013’s A Color Map of the Sun, which was nominated for a GRAMMY and hailed as a “uniquely crafted, groove-centric head trip” by Rolling Stone. To produce the album, Pretty Lights’ Derek Vincent Smith spent a year composing and recording music and vocals that emulated genres and time periods that spanned the last century, then pressed it to vinyl. He used that vinyl along with a massive custom built analog modular synth to create A Color Map of the Sun. The double-CD set also included Live Studio Sessions From A Color Map of the Sun, a disc with 13 tracks from the recording sessions.
