Young Dolph, Railroad Earth, and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason book Colorado shows

If you’re the sort who hangs around outside tour buses — whether it's for selfies, autographs or just a brush with fame — Young Dolph’s newly announced Summit Music Hall show may not be the best place to do it.

Bulletproof, the title of the Memphis rapper’s April 2017 sophomore album, was disturbingly apropos, coming less than two months after he was an alleged target in a North Carolina shooting involving several dozen rounds of bullets. Less than six months later, a similar incident reportedly occurred outside a Shoe Palace retail outlet in Hollywood, sending him to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds. Dolph has since boasted about owning two bulletproof black SUVs.

Will newly booked shows featuring the likes of jam band Railroad Earth and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason turn out to be safer propositions? Hard to say. In any case, be careful out there.
