AEG Live is thrilled to announce BIG GIGANTIC live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre for two nights, Friday & Saturday, September 26 – 27, 2014.
BIG GIGANTIC has set their sights even bigger this year for their massive hometown show dubbed “ROWDYTOWN.” Taking over the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, the third annual event is expanding to two days in 2014: Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27. Pre-sale tickets for “Rowdytown III” will go on sale starting tomorrow, Wednesday, April 2 with the general on-sale available Friday, April 4.
Debuting in 2012 to a sold-out crowd of more than 9,450 fans and voted the #1 EDM show of that year by the Westword, ROWDYTOWN I marked the first time an artist ever used projection mapping visuals on the venue’s famous rocks. The second installment, which sold out weeks in advance, used even bigger lighting rigs and twice the projection mapping with Stan Shkrobor from EDMTUNES.COM calling the show’s visuals “the you-gotta-see-it-to-believe-it projection mapping!” (10/1/13). Describing ROWDYTOWN II, Corey Blecha from COLORADO MUSIC BUZZ claimed “from the get-go, it was an audio and visual spectacle” (October) and LISTEN UP DENVER’s Lindsay Lynch declared the show “one of the best dance parties of the summer” (10/7/13). With the inaugural year featuring support from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dillon Francis, GRiZ and Raw Russ and round two Adventure Club, Carnage and Manic Focus, who will BIG G bring out this year? Stay tuned for lineup announcements and more in the coming weeks!
Prior to turning the state of Colorado rowdy, BIG GIGANTIC will get the party started at various festivals this spring and summer as they continue to tour in support of their new album, THE NIGHT IS YOUNG. Kicking off with their debut at Coachella (4/13 and 4/20), the Boulder, CO-based duo of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken will be returning to Georgia’s CounterPoint Music & Arts Festival, followed by sets at the Beale Street Festival in Memphis, Mysteryland in Bethel Woods, NY, Spring Awakening in Chicago and the Firefly Festival in Delaware with more festival dates still to be announced. See below for full list of tour dates.
THE NIGHT IS YOUNG—released February 11 for free via their website www.biggigantic.net–is an eclectic mix of tracks that span genres from electronic and dance to hip hop and electro soul. Debuting at #10 on the Dance/Electronic Album and #18 Heatseekers Album Billboard charts respectively as well as #2 on the iTunes Electronic chart upon its release, the 8-song album includes “Touch The Sky,” a blazing instrumental that made its debut in late 2013 to critical acclaim throughout the blogosphere, as well as the crushing dubstep song “Lets Go!,” the dazzling saxhooked track “Just For The Thrill” and velvety number “Shooting Stars.” The album also features the title track and party anthem “The Night Is Young” featuring vocals from their friends Cherub (Jordan Kelly and Jason Huber).
About BIG GIGANTIC:
Formed in 2008, saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli (classically trained with a master’s degree in jazz from the Manhattan School of Music) and drummer Jeremy Salken interpret traditional DJbased music with live instruments and have successfully created an innovative, distinct sound that’s all their own. Their transcendent live shows are a showcase of brilliant improvisation and a tightly knit bond between Salken and Lalli, who breathlessly alternates between keys, sax and laptop, building a futuristic wall of sound that keeps the crowd on its feet. The duo leaves no genre off-limits as they channel everything from funk and dubstep to house and hip-hop. Their latest album, THE NIGHT IS YOUNG, was released in February 2014 as a free download on their website www.biggigantic.net. The new album marks the fifth album for the duo following Fire It Up (2009), Wide Awake (2009), A Place Behind The Moon (2010) and 2012’s Nocturnal (which has received more than one million downloads to date). BIG GIGANTIC have spent the last two years on various sold-out headlining tours across the country and received rave reviews from their many festival appearances that have included Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, Hangout, Austin City Limits, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest and Outside Lands among many others.
