Big Head Todd and the Monsters are not that big on anniversaries, so there won’t be any big hoopla over the fact that the band is officially crossing the three-decade mark this year. Thirty years would seem like something to commemorate, especially with the same core lineup, an achievement few other name-brand bands can boast of. Yet right now they’re less about celebrating stability than volatility, in the form of their eleventh studio album, New World Arisin’, which makes good on its forward-facing title with what might be the brashest rock and roll of their career. The old world can’t rest on any laurels, and neither will they.

Get ready for a night to remember with platinum recording artist Fuel. Fuel will be ringing downtown Grand Junction into the New Year as the clock strikes midnight, with supporting artist Dead Cowboyz. VIP seating is available with a New Year's Eve swag bag, assigned seats and access to the private bars. Reserved tickets will get you up close to the stage and private bar access.

Fuel has nothing to prove. The band has sold nearly 4 million records worldwide and has scored a trio of billboard toppers including “Shimmer”, “Innocent” and “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)”, which was #1 for 10 weeks. The single was also named Billboard's no. 5 rock song of the decade according to their best of the 2000s rock songs chart.

The band has headlined its own sold out tours, as well as supporting the likes of Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Creed and 3 Doors Down. Fuel is currently touring Australia and new Zealand and will be wrapping up their tour in downtown Grand Junction at Two Rivers Convention Center. What better way to ring in the New Year than with 2000’s rock sensation Fuel!

“Weird Al” Yankovic burst onto the scene over three decades ago and never looked back. For the first time in his storied career, the world’s foremost musical satirist and four-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show for an intimate evening of music, focusing on original (non-parody) songs from his 14-album catalog. After his 2016 world tour, including venues such as the Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall, this is a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with this legendary performer.
Weird Al’s most recent album Mandatory Fun was the first comedy album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. In 2018 he will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Tickets on sale October 20th!
