Presented by AEG Live Rocky Mountains, Live Nation, Boulder radio station 97.3 KBCO and CBS4 TV in Denver, proceeds for planned for Oct. 27 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield will go directly to The United Ways Of Colorado Flood Recovery Fund which will distribute funds to flood-stricken communities across the state.

“Coloradans unite during crisis – so does the music community,” Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said.  “We are thrilled so many musicians are coming together for this flood relief benefit concert.  This is a great way to highlight recovery efforts and raise money at the same time.  We are grateful AEG Live and other community partners are stepping up to help Colorado communities impacted by the historic flooding.”
