Yeah Yeah Yeahs Headlining This Year's Monolith Festival

Glastonbury Highlights - Karen O - Yeah Yeah Yeahs by Laughing Man Images.

Imagine our surprise when Yeah Yeah Yeahs announced their first string of U.S. tour dates back in April and Austin was omitted from the list of cities. Although we're still hopeful on getting an Austin date, we're extremely excited they were added to this year's Monolith Festival at Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre. We've heard so much about the beauty and "truly unique" concert experience that is Red Rocks from our friends BJ and Julio on many occasions. I think it's about time we stop hearing about it and experience it for ourselves!

As always, the Monolith Festival is a two day concert extravaganza and this year it'll be taking place on the 12th and 13th of September. The lineup already looks very impressive so far (check out the list of names down below), but they are still waiting to announce Sunday evening's headliner! Early bird tickets have already SOLD OUT, but you can still purchase a two day pass for only $95. Don't forget you can also follow (@MonolithFest) on Twitter to stay up with special announcements.
