KING GIZZARD – ” Live At Red Rocks 22 “

Posted: January 26, 2023 in MUSIC

One of the most legendary live concerts of all time. Wish I could have been there, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard surprised fans on Wednesday with the release of a new live album featuring recordings from the band’s milestone shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Entitled “Live At Red Rocks ’22”, the album includes a staggering 86 tracks from KGLW’s first-ever shows at the iconic Colorado venue, where they played three-hour marathon sets on October 10th and 11th and November 2nd, 2022.

Pulled from their three shows at the iconic Colorado venue last fall, a live album featuring every song the Australian rock band played at the iconic Colorado venue last fall. The live album follows their six releases in 2022: Butterfly 3001; Made In Timeland; Omnium Gatherum; Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava; Laminated Dream; and Changes.

In addition to band members Ambrose Kenny-SmithCook CraigJoey WalkerLucas HarwoodMichael Cavanagh, and Stu Mackenzie, the album also features a guest appearance from vocalist Leah Senior, who opened the shows and sat in with the band, on tracks 21–23, 46–51, and 84–85. The three concerts were three-hour “marathon sets” consisting of material from throughout the prolific band’s career. King Gizz was originally supposed to make their Red Rocks debut in May of 2020. However, the pandemic led to numerous postponements.

The collection is available via Bandcamp as part of the group’s bootlegger program, meaning fans are free to distribute the audio in physical formats if they provide copies for the band to sell on (official audio master files and cover art are available here).

Live At Red Rocks ’22” arrives one day after King Gizzard shared a music video for the “Changes” song “Astroturf” featuring footage of the band tracking the song live in-studio. The band comment, “We filmed this live then overdubbed the fuck over it. Recording is fun.” 

King Gizzard’s long awaited Red Rocks debut featured nine hours of ‘no repeats’ over the course of the three nights, even with a repertoire as deep as Gizz’s, it was truly an epic feat. With an impressive total of eighty-six different songs, now available to stream is the just released compilation album featuring the full shows from the famed venue.
