2016 is about to come to a close, and what an amazing year it was for concerts in our own backyard. But what does 2017 have in store at our Colorado venues?

Many shows have already been announced, with Fiddlers Green still having a blank slate on their calendar and Red Rocks still having to announce 70% of their shows for the summer season.

However, with the recent announcements of the Greeley Stampede and Cheyenne Frontier Days, our schedules are starting to fill up which means you need to pick wisely for what shows you need to be part of.

When looking at what has been scheduled so far, these are the ten that we think are a "can't miss" for 2017. Of course, more shows could be added to the "must see" list as more are announced. But we truly believe these are sure bets for you to have the most fun at.

Enjoy the end of 2016...because 2017 looks like it is going to be just as fun!
