Following recent milestone performances at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and Berkeley’s Greek Theatre, Rateliff & The Night Sweats are set for their Seventeenth Annual Holiday Show in Denver with very special guests Marcus Mumford and Hermanos Gutiérrez. For Rateliff and the band, their performance at Ball Arena on December 16 holds special significance as it’s their first ever arena show and includes a performance from their longtime friend Marcus Mumford. General on-sale begins Friday, September 23 at 10 a.m. local time at; see below for the full tour routing.

Rateliff’s Annual Holiday Show has always been an evening to celebrate friends as well as music and this year is no exception. Years before Nathaniel Rateliff put the Night Sweats together Marcus Mumford often saw Rateliff play in local clubs while living in the Denver area. A few years later during the early stages of Mumford & Sons, the group had Rateliff perform as their opener during numerous shows, which further solidified their long-term collaborative relationship.

This past July, Rateliff and band surprised festivalgoers at Newport Folk with a headlining set consisting entirely of Paul Simon songs. The ultimate surprise was delivered when Simon joined Rateliff onstage for “Graceland” and three more songs. Last year, the group performed on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and “CBS This Morning: Saturday” in support of their third studio album The Future. In addition, Rateliff and the band are slated to appear on “Austin City Limits,” marking their second appearance on the show.
