Contrary to what some music pundits may be claiming, live music is anything but dead. In fact, according to a newly published article in the industry tipsheet Pollstar, Red Rocks Amphitheatre alone grossed $44.9 million in 2016.

So it only makes sense that AEG Presents — the monolithic concert promotion company owned by Colorado Springs own billionaire Phil Anschutz — has just announced plans to build a swanky new venue in Denver’s River North Arts District.

The Mission Ballroom, which is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019, promises to hold as many as 3,950 music lovers, making it approximately the same capacity as the Fillmore Auditorium. Want to know more? Here’s a nifty promotional video featuring breathless testimonials from the likes of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. Enjoy!
