Justin Timberlake reignited his music career early in 2013 with the release of the first of his two-disc album, “The 20/20 Experience.” He has stayed atop the charts ever since, selling out tour dates across the nation and world. There’s really no better way to kick off the Mile High City’s concert season than with JT’s 20/20 Experience World Tour. Pepsi Center will host the extravaganza, urban/R&B star The Weekend will open the night. Even though it is one of the first concerts on tap in 2014, it promises to be one of the biggest events of the year.

Since winning NBC’s hit singing competition “The Sing Off,” Pentatonix has revolutionized the a capella genre. Its YouTube channel boasts tens of millions of views and the group has released two albums as well as sold out domestic and international tours since. The day after Valentine’s Day, Pentatonix will be sharing the love with Denver for a performance at the Paramount Theater. Using only vocal innovation to play off of the pristine acoustics of the theater, it will be an evening you and your ears won’t easily forget.

Rock legends and proven entertainers ZZ Top will be gracing the stage of the Paramount Theater as well. Bringing decades of hits and experience to the stage, this group’s performances sell out often and never bore hardcore lifelong fans and new audiences with the use of synthesizers and quirky originality. VIP tickets that include a meet and greet as well as a photo with the band are available along with regular reserved seats.
