05-20-2003Red Rocks openers confirmed; Many new dates announced

According to Red Rocks Amphitheatre's web site, redrocksonline.com, Howie Day has officially been tapped as the opener for this year's July 4th show. This will be his second consecutive Red Rocks opening slot, as he also filled the bill last year with G. Love & Special Sauce. Leftover Salmon will still be opening on July 3rd, but had to turn down a reprise of their 1997 opener appearances due to prior commitments at a festival in Minnesota.

Several new dates have been announced since the last news update. In addition to the typical slate of festivals and fairs (including a return to Mad Booking's series, now scheduled for Nashville, Atlanta and Memphis), the band will also be playing several smaller venues in Florida (the Freebird Cafe in Jacksonville Beach and Jannus Landing in St. Petersburg), Virginia (the Wolf Trap in Vienna and Innsbrook Pavilion in Glen Allen), Massachusetts (the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis), and Pennsylvania (Shawnee Mountain in Shawnee-on-Delaware). The band will also return to the casino circuit for a few shows, including Prairie's Edge in Minnesota, the Ho-Chunk in Wisconsin, and the Mandalay in Las Vegas. Many tour dates have yet to be announced, so stay tuned to the tour page for the latest updates.
