Future-funk musician and gifted saxophonist GRiZ is excited to announce two headlining shows at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO, slated for Labor Day WeekendFriday, September 1 and Saturday, September 2. The past two years have seen GRiZ sell out one night each at Red Rocks, but this year GRiZ will add a night to make two consecutive performances at the venue. This year’s installment will feature the debut of the GRiZ Live Band on night 1 only (September 1). Night 2 (September 2) is GRiZ bringing in the banging, funky, dreamy, and nothing but 100% killer. Pre-sale tickets for both shows will be available tomorrow, March 28 starting at 10am MT. General on-sale tickets will be available starting on Saturday, April 1.
GRiZ will also be performing internationally at festivals throughout the year, with appearances at Lollapalooza (in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile), Phoenix Lights Festival in Phoenix, AZ, Shaky Beats Festival in Atlanta, GA, Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY, Osheaga Festival in Montreal, QC and many more. The full list of currently scheduled dates is below.

GRiZ’s 2016 album Good Will Prevail debuted as the #2 Dance/Electronic album on the Billboard charts, #4on their Heatseekers chart and reached #86 on their Top 200 album chart. The album was the #1 electronic album on iTunes and Amazon upon its release, and reached #12 in iTunes storewide. It was also the #1 electronic album on Amazon upon its release.

Good Will Prevail received a great deal of advance praise, from Consequence of Sound noting that “Can’t Hold Me Down” ft. Tash Neal of The London Souls has everything you could possibly want from a party jam: a ridiculously catchy garage-rock riff, arena-size percussion, and a chorus that begs to be played at top volume;” Billboard praising “PS GFY” ft. Cherub for its “beautiful blend of bright horns, up-stroke guitar, and tons of funky bass;” and Pigeons And Planes calling “Gotta Push On” ft. Brasstracks & Eric Krasno a “lively single that layers jazz, funk, and soul over an electronic rhythm.”
