By Westword Staff | As of November 27, Red Rocks Amphitheatre’s calendar already listed more than thirty concerts for 2019, and most of them are fronted by white men. The lineup does showcase a stunning diversity of white men, though: some with long facial hair, others with neatly trimmed beards, one who dresses like a teddy bear, and several who shave. Sprinkled in the mix are a few men of color, mostly in otherwise all-white bands. Here’s hoping for some diversity in the impending concert announcements.
