The venue will also serve as a special event venue and can be booked for private events, corporate training, weddings, trade shows, and more.
Mission Ballroom will use a new ticketing program called “Mission far Ticketing” for some shows. This system is designed to give equal access to all fans for tickets and aims to prevent ticket brokers and automatic ticket buying systems from purchasing blocks of tickets.
This is already a jam-packed lineup with plenty more to come. We are looking forward to catching a show at Denver’s newest venue. Will you be headed out to the Mission Ballroom to catch the Lumineers, Bastille, Ludacris and Nelly, or any other of the shows the new venue is hosting? Sound off in the comments below.
