Damien Rice & Iron and Wine Tickets
Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO
After 8 years hidden from the public eye, many had assumed velvet-toned balladeer Damien Rice had retired from music. However, much to the delight of music lovers everywhere, the Irish crooner has made a triumphant comeback with his widely acclaimed album My Favourite Faded Fantasy, and is now embarking on a world tour in celebration of the release! And what better to accompany his tour than the spiraling gossamer harmonies of Iron and Wine? See them at Red Rocks Amphitheater on Monday 10th August for a spellbinding show!
Damien Rice cut his teeth in 90s rock band Juniper. Scouted when touring, they were picked up by Polygram who signed them to a six album record deal, but after the band's moderate success with singles “Weatherman” and “The World is Dead”, Rice left the band in 1998, frustrated with the direction thigns were taking. After time spent in Tuscany busking and farming, Rice returned to Ireland and made recordings with friends in a mobile studio. His single, “The Blower's Daughter”, made the UK Top 40 Chart and paved the way for the success of his 2002 debut album O, which peaked at number 8 in the UK Albums Chart, remaining on the chart for 97 weeks, and selling 650,000 copies in the US. His subsequent album 9 was released in 2006 and, after an eight year hiatus and withdrawal from the public eye, Rice returned to music in 2014 much to the surprise and delight of fans, releasing his third album My Favourite Faded Fantasy.
