Blues Traveler comes to the Fox
Blues Traveler has made a name for themselves for the past twenty years, and more recently, in a niche that not many other bands compare to.
Lead by harmonica-slinging John Popper, the band’s instrumentals, vocals and rhythm blend together to create a unique and familiar sound that will ring throughout the Fox Theatre on Friday, Dec. 7.
The band is comprised of Ben Wilson on keyboards, Chan Kinchla on guitar, Popper on vocals, Tad Kinchla on bass and Brendan Hill on drums. All members hail from Princeton, N.J., but have dispersed across the country since the band’s formation.
Known for their awe-inspiring live performances, the five will reunite for this current tour promoting their recent album “Cover Yourself” that was released earlier this year.
Blues Traveler plays an annual Fourth of July concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Excited Boulderites more familiar with the band’s live performances describe shows with words like “electrifying” and “extraordinary.”
Unfortunately for many students, the show is restricted to a 21 and up audience. This has aggravated some of the band’s younger fans.
“I’m a little upset that the concert is for 21 and up only – I’m only 19,” said Samuel Powell, a freshman, open-option major. “It would be awesome to see (Blues Traveler) at such a great venue.”
However, those that are over 21 are excited for the show.
“I have been listening to them for a long time, but I have never gotten a chance to see them live,” said Annabel Allen, a junior psychology major “I hear they’re great live.”
The concert is expected to sell out before the doors open, but there are still tickets available for $32.
The doors will open on Friday at 8 p.m., with the show starting at 9 p.m.
