The Awakening Foundation, powered by Awakening Events, announces that in just five days, all tickets for the 3rd Annual KLOVE Presents Live at Red Rocks have sold out. This is the second fastest Christian music event to sell out at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre located in Morrison, Colorado, just outside of Denver. The first night, which sold out in just 72 hours, will feature Zach Williams, We The Kingdom, CAIN, Anne Wilson, Blessing Offor, and Hope Darst. The second evening, selling out in five days, has MercyMe, Jeremy Camp, Unspoken, Ryan Stevenson, and Jon Reddick. The event is supported by Altrua HealthShare and World Vision.
“Every year we look forward to our annual Red Rocks concerts and events, and we’re thrilled to share both nights are sold out,” exclaims Dan Fife, President and Founder of Awakening Events, Inc. “The first night sold out in a record 72 hours, the fastest-selling night ever of the two-day event. This is also CCM’s second fastest-selling Red Rocks show, with only Third Day’s final Farewell Tour stop in 2018 reaching a quicker sell-out. Many folks in the industry believe shows automatically sell out at this historic venue since it’s the best outdoor theater in the world, but they have many shows and events there each year that don’t sell-out. I am so proud of our team and all of the strategy and work they put in every single day to make this happen.”
