Whoever the group is, they will be non-offensive and have Denver ties. That leaves The Frey, The Lumineers, DeVotchKa, One Republic, and Earth, Wind, & Fire. It eliminates Cephalic Carnage and Flobots.
If those are the choices,

Outside hire please

I'd be fine with even with a John Denver cover artist, Michael Martin Murphy or any other folk/country artist like Kenny Loggins sitting on the stage and eating granola for 20 minutes in the intermission if the AVs could get an outdoor game.

I simply love the team and the town so much (even though I only visit occasionally) I want them/y'all to have this.

If this game happens I will for sure be travelling down to Denver for it. I'm already figuring out how to save money for it.

Avs vs Wings Alumni game but you have to have played for them between 96-02.

the lumineers would be fine. But ROR would be front row with his plaid shirt and skinny jeans.

The singer from imagine dragons lives 15 or so homes away from me. I wonder if he's a hockey fan.

At least we would have more leverage in the negotiations.

Yeah, I'd be willing to bet the Beatles will re-unite and play for us before it's a metal band....

I really don't get the appeal of stadium games. The lack of a crowd right up to the glass ruins it, and even if you're in the front row you're as far away from the action as if you were in the back row of an arena's lower bowl... but paying twice as much as you would for a front row seat. To get high enough up in the stands to see the ice, you're gonna be as far away as if you were in the arena nosebleed seats.

I just don't get it. Outdoor hockey is meant to be played on a pond with no boards, with bleachers right up next to it. This is nothing but a way to separate status symbol fans from their money.

I think it's just a nice event. The organization and city/state could use some attention. It's fun for the players to have that experience of playing outdoors, enjoy a little attention and hype. We'd get special jerseys for the event. Maybe even get featured on NHL revealed if they keep doing the series. At the end of the day it is manufactured hype and meaningless, yes. But it's fun and would be nice for the Avs to host a hockey event. Casual fans around town might pay more attention and attend. They could host some college and youth games too. It's just good for hockey locally.

Rockies owner did a chat today on their twitter feed. Just thought it might be of interest to see what he said about an outdoor game.

@Rockies: .@maciolek1s We have been in discussions with the NHL and the Avalanche and hopefully we will have an outdoor hockey game at Coors Field.

For what it's worth, the Avs season ticket renewals were sent out and it mentions only a 43 game schedule, as opposed to 44 (41 regular season + 3 preseason). Just thought it was interesting one game was missing.

That's interesting. But wouldn't season ticket holders be given tickets to this game. I would at least assume they would.

I assume they would but they couldn't price it the same without knowing what seating would be like.

I wonder if other teams who have had outdoor games can offer insight if this is how it worked for their season tickets.

I would think they'd give STH rights to purchase but they can't force purchase (like how they do for preseason games for example). So that actually makes sense. Very interesting tidbit, thanks for sharing. Wonder what they say if people question why their package is only 43 games.

Coors field sucks for hockey just like every baseball stadium sucks for Hockney.

I was a Flyers STH in 2012 when the Winter Classic was in Philadelphia. The contract that each STH signed stated that we would get 44 games (41 Regular Season and 3 Preseason). We did not get the Winter Classic tickets and we were refunded for the lack of one game. But we were never told that we would not receive that 44th game, that they took our money for months in advance.

In fact this whole thing lead to a class action lawsuit against the Flyers. The Winter Classic is an NHL event and not an event by the home team. The contract we signed above obviously stated that we would get 44 games and that wasn't fulfilled on their part. Also, the Flyers forced their STH to buy tickets to the Alumni game and the AHL game in order to get Winter Classic tickets. Non-STH were able to just buy WC tickets. The lawsuit was settled and STH received a whopping $40 in stored value.

With all of that said I would say that it's guaranteed that the Avs will be getting an outdoor game with the 43 game schedule sent out.

Very interesting, thank you. Sounds like after the lawsuit they have to be upfront about not charging for that 44th game if it is not going to exist.
