Following her high-energy Super Bowl performance, pop icon Lady Gaga surprised Colorado fans with the morning-after announcement of a show at Denver’s Pepsi Center. Granted, it’s ten months away, but given the enthusiasm of her fan-base, tickets are likely to sell out quickly once they go on sale Feb. 20.

In other new concert announcements, Rise Against and Deftones have also announced a Pepsi Center date, for which they’ll be co-headlining, while the Black Sheep will be putting three new shows on sale this coming Friday.

And with that, here’s this week’s full list of new show announcements:


Frank Iero and the Patience, Marquis Theater, May 4

As It Is, Black Sheep, May 6

Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, Summit Music Hall, May 7

The Dear Hunter, Black Sheep, May 21

Suffocation, Black Sheep, June 9

Rise Against, Deftones, Pepsi Center, June 30

Muse, Red Rocks, Sept. 18


• Lady Gaga,
Pepsi Center, Dec. 12

Lady Gaga announces Pepsi Center show

  • Wax figure of Lady Gaga at Madame Tussauds ... Or is it?

Despite Alex Jones’s dire predictions, Satanic symbolism was conspicuously absent from Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance. But there’s still hope for Gaga's fans and detractors here in Colorado: Concert promoters Live Nation has just announced that the artist will be headlining the Pepsi Convention Center on December 12.

Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, Feb. 20, and Gaga’s legion of fans —or, as she likes to call them, Little Monsters — should prepare for the fact that there’s a limit of eight tickets per transaction on all first-day sales. And with 150 million singles sold, chances are that the show won't take more than a day to sell out.

Will Gaga jump off the roof of the Pepsi Center, or be watched over by a horde of red-white-and-blue drones, or reprise any of her other Super Bowl stunts? Who knows?

But in the meantime, we have these videos of Gaga's half time performance as well as Jones’ unhinged tirade, both of which are too entertaining not to ignore.
