Live Nation has announced that the iconic Summit Music Hall in Denver will shut down this summer for significant renovations. The Summit Music Hall opened in 2006 and will now see ‘transformative’ renovations to expand audience capacity while improving patrons’ concert-going experience and artist accoutrements.
Summit will close down from June 21 to early September. The venue currently has instrumental band STS9 scheduled to reopen the venue on Sept. 6. The band is set to kick off the fall scheduled before playing two back-to-back shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
Renovations to the 1,350-capacity venue will include an upgrade the sound system, expanded restrooms, improved sightlines from the balcony and upgrades to artist dressing rooms that include in-suite bathrooms and showers.
The nearby Marquis Theater, which similarly opened in 2006, will undergo similar renovations from July 2 through Aug. 12. The famed Marquis Pizza will remain open during the theater’s renovations.
In February, Live Nation Clubs & Theaters took over booking and operations for Summit Music Hall and Marquis Theater in Denver. The buildings are still owned by local live entertainment company Soda Jerk Presents.
