Denver Getting New Concert Venue
AEG Presents-Rocky Mountains rolls out plans for a new state-of-the-art venue.
It will be called The Mission Ballroom. It's a new, scalable, state-of-the-art venue scheduled to open the summer of 2019. The 60,000 square-foot ballroom will be the centerpiece of the new North Wynkoop development. It's a 14-acre mixed-use project located at the north-end of the RiNo Neighborhood between 40th and 43rd Streets.
Chuck Morris, CEO of AEG Presents-Rocky Mountains, said of the new venue, “Our entire AEG Presents Rocky Mountain team spent the last 11 years searching for the perfect location and the right design to build one of the finest venues this town has ever seen. With features including a moving stage that provides The Mission flexible capacity from 2200 to 3950 guests, unrivaled sight lines and state-of-the-art sound and lights, The Mission will bring Colorado the most cutting-edge concert experience in the world.”
AEG-Rocky Mountains currently operates the Bluebird Theater, Gothic Theatre, Ogden Theatre, 1stBANK Center and the Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre. They too book the majority of the shows at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The new Mission Ballroom will feature tiered rows that provide unobscured views at every level, sight lines from every vantage point and a large dance floor that allows standing or seating. Full-service bars conveniently placed around the venue maximize flow, efficiency and patron experience. “We blended the ballroom experience on the floor with a tiered-riser configuration similar to Red Rocks. Beyond offering incredible sight lines, this design creates the finest sonic experience that Colorado concertgoers expect and deserve,” said Don Strasburg, co-president for AEG Presents Rocky Mountains.
No word on what band will open this new state-of-the-art venue. That will be an unforgettable night regardless of who's first. Before the speculation and rumor get too cranked up they will need to break ground first.
