Canadian country sensation Orville Peck, who has never shown his face publicly (on account of his array of incredible fringed masks), will co-headline Red Rocks Amphitheatre on July 22 with English singer Yola and support from Charley Crockett and guest-host John Waters — the director of “Hairspray,” “Pink Flamingos” and other queer-cinema classics.

Musician Lindsey Stirling, who got her start as an improbably animated violinist, brings her theatrical (some might say gimmicky) stage show to Red Rocks on July 7. New tickets for the show, rescheduled from July 8, 2020, are on sale, and previously held tickets will be honored. ($65, axs.com)
Folk-pop icons Indigo Girls added a second date at Boulder’s fetching Chautauqua Auditorium, joining a sold-out Aug. 17 concert there. Tickets for the new, Aug. 15 show are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 4. ($52-$70, chautauqua.com)
Dusky Texas trio Khruangbin, which often sounds like the soundtrack to a dreamy Bollywood epic or a crowded night festival, will headline Red Rocks on Sept. 21 with no opener yet announced (or, perhaps, on the bill at all). Tickets for the all-ages concert are on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 4. ($54.50-$75, axs.com)
