For the first time ever, twice Grammy®-nominated band Gojira will host an official stream of their previously unreleased Live At Red Rocks concert on May 20, 2020.

Fans can check out a teaser trailer from the legendary performance HERE.
The never-before-seen film chronicles the band’s headline performance at the historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, USA. In the midst of their MAGMA World Tour, the quartet shook the mountains with an unforgettable set on May 11, 2017. To commemorate the evening, they professionally shot the show – finally revealing it now.
Additionally, Gojira will launch limited-edition Live At Red Rocks merchandise including a special edition t-shirt and poster which will be available for purchase during the stream.
Gojira are currently finishing up work on their highly anticipated follow-up to MAGMA, which earned the band two GRAMMY nominations – ‘Best Metal Performance’ and ‘Best Rock Album.’ Upon release, MAGMA took the #1 spot on Billboard’s ‘Hard Rock Albums’ chart, making Gojira the first French band ever to hold the #1 spot on the chart. MAGMA also asserted itself as one of the most acclaimed albums of 2016, earning Metal Hammer’s coveted “Album of the Year” title while also landing on Rolling Stone’s “Top 20 Metal Albums of 2016,” Consequence of Sound’s “Top 50 Albums of 2016” / “Top 10 Metal Albums of 2016” lists, and Pop Matters’ “Best Metal of 2016” recap, amongst many other accolades around the globe. Additionally, “Stranded,” the lead single off of MAGMA, was named one of Stereogum’s “100 Favorite Songs Of 2016.”
Gojira treat heavy music as a living and breathing entity, morphing, transforming, and changing in each iteration. After 2016’s MAGMA crashed the Top 25 of the Billboard Top 200, the history-making French band garnered a pair of 2017 Grammy® nominations, including “Best Rock Album” and “Best Metal Performance” for “Silvera.” Revolver cited its 2012 predecessor L’Enfant Sauvage as #2 among the “25 Best Albums of the 2010s.” Meanwhile, Rolling Stone named their 2005 breakthrough From Mars To Sirius one of “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.” Handpicked to open for Metallica by none other than frontman James Hetfield, they have toured with Slayer, Slipknot, and more in addition to headlining tours and festivals around the world. The group’s forthcoming seventh full-length album will undoubtedly see them push the envelope as they change heavy music once again.
