The first night of a three-show run featuring Illenium at Red Rocks Amphitheatre has been canceled due to an extreme drop in temperature.
The bass music scene was abuzz when Illenium announced a series of shows at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre earlier this year. Tickets sold out for the first two nights in a manner of minutes, with Illenium adding a third night to the mix to give his thriving fanbase an extra opportunity to catch him live.
Each night was set to bring a unique experience for all who would be attending, with two showcasing his new album live set and a third taking Illenials back in time with a throwback set as well. After tweeting out that temperatures would be cold yesterday, today, the first of three nights has officially been canceled as an extreme drop in temperature has prevented the venue from opening to the public.

Originally discovered by calling the hotline for the Red Rocks Ampitheatre, the venue and Illenium himself took to social media to announce the cancellation. Because of the weather, the City of Denver is unable to open the venue despite exploring every possible option for the show to go on.
The remaining two shows are still slated to continue as scheduled, but stay tuned to their Twitter accounts for any updates. Refunds are being processed now for those who purchased tickets for Thursday’s show, so make sure to check your banking information over the next few days.
