Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day 2009 Lineup

JAS 2009

Jazz Aspen Snowmass Adds Elvis Costello
To Labor Day Festival Line-Up

The Allman Brothers Band, Black Eyed Peas,
Doobie Brothers, and Michael Franti are This Year's Highlights

Aspen, CO, July 24, 2009 - The much anticipated JAS Labor Day Festival returns to Snowmass Town Park from Sept. 4-6. Michael Franti and Spearhead will headline on Friday, Sept. 4 in their only summer Colorado appearance.

Opening for Franti will be Citizen Cope in his first JAS appearance. Making their first Aspen appearance on Saturday, Sept. 5th are the Black Eyed Peas, whose new album, featuring the hit single "Boom Boom Pow," released world-wide in June, in their exclusive Colorado summer appearance. Elvis Costello & The Imposters will open for the Peas. Costello, who appeared at the JAS June Festival in 2006 with Allen Toussaint, released his latest album, Secret, Profane & Sugarcane earlier this summer. Umphrey's McGee opens the day on Saturday at 3pm.

Returning to JAS on Sunday, Sept. 6th is the legendary Allman Brothers Band, celebrating their 40th anniversary tour this year. The Allman Brothers 2007 appearance at JAS was the biggest concert in JAS history. Following that sell out year, JAS reduced the number of tickets sold and increased site capacity in order to make the grounds more comfortable. Joining this highly anticipated bill will be the legendary American rock band, The Doobie Brothers, performing at 5pm, with the Drive By Truckers kicking the day off. The Doobie's have been rockin' crowds since 1970 with songs like "Black Water" and "Takin' It to the Streets."

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at 866-JAS-TIXX, or at the Belly Up Box Office in Aspen, 970-544-9800. For lodging and ticket packages please call 800-SNOWMASS or visit
