'Wow, that's a whole lot of Honda CR-Vs for one parking lot! Must be a Dad Rock show.' It's time to belt those jeans and make some bad jokes, because these were the best Dad Rock shows to hit Colorado this year. 

Before you get insulted because you like these bands, I love my dad, so who said this was a bad thing? I mean, it's not like I just accused you of listening to 'Butt Rock.'

  • Counting Crows - Red Rocks

    The band that has a song in Shrek that is not Smash Mouth.

  • John Mellencamp - Ellie Caulkins Opera House

    Did he drop 'cougar' from his name? Because they're probably at his concert, too.

  • Barenaked Ladies - Red Rocks

    Wow, be careful when you're searching for a picture of that band. Do not add an extra space (at least not at work).

  • Dave Matthews Band - Fiddler's Green

    Of course, the fathers of Dad Rock brought all their lite hits to Denver's Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre for not one, but two nights in August.
