To make the month even more sensational, Billy Joel takes the stage Thursday, August 8, to deliver his mind-blowing collection of hits produced over two decades of songwriting success.

The Year of the Owl

Fans of the Zac Brown Band have been waiting patiently since 2017 to hear more sensational hits from these contemporary country-rock artists, and with "The Owl Tour," they will finally get their chance. After diligently working for two solid years in the studio, the groups' collaborative album, "The Owl," is a showcase of personal challenges amidst an eclectic mixture of genres and abilities.

Inspired by the mystical wisdom of the owl, the artists were called to give voice to painful memories, experiment with favorite musical styles, and dig deeper into their individual talents. Truly an intimate work of art, the band further expanded their reach by pairing with artists such as Skrillex, Ryan Tedder, Max Martin, and more.

Full of classical training, raw passion, and vocal genius, the Zac Brown Band is never one to disappoint, and August's Coors Field event will be no exception.

The Value of Additional Artists

To bring the dynamics of the intriguing, "The Owl" album to the stage, the Denver audience will be treated to an acoustic tour de force with special guests Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Caroline Jones. Watching this level of talent perform as a compelling collective under one roof, you can expect a night of unexpected wonder and beauty, and that cannot be duplicated.

Slated to be released in late September, "The Owl Tour" provides audiences a singular moment to catch a sneak-peek of this newest album, which is truly a labor of love and already proving to be a commercial hit. Bringing this opportunity into your life is sure to be one you’ll never regret.
