Sheridan Opera House: Canceled/Postponed Shows, Update!

Telluride’s Sheridan Arts Foundation is disappointed to announce that several upcoming events at the Sheridan Opera House have been cancelled.

Both Spafford and Galactic have cancelled their tours, which included the Saturday, March 14  Spafford concert and Monday, March 16 Galactic show at the Sheridan Opera House.

The Sheridan Arts Foundation and artists made the collective decision to cancel the Bill & Jilian Nershi and Island Grass March 17th concert, the Gabrielle Louise March 18th SHOW Bar concert and April 4th $1 Community Night featuring Birds of Play concerts due to the same concerns about the spread of the coronavirus, especially given the latest recommendations from San Miguel County Medical Officer Dr. Sharon Grundy that all large events be cancelled.

Information available at or by calling 970.728.6363 ext. 5.

Galactic’s official statement:

Galactic Fans – there is nothing Galactic wanted more than to celebrate their 25th Anniversary with you. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns surrounding specific dates on their upcoming run, Galactic is canceling their tour through the end of March. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
They promise to be back as soon as possible and that it will be just as funky, or even funkier.

Spafford’s official statement:

It’s with extremely heavy hearts that we must inform you that we will be POSTPONING all Winter Tour dates due to new mass gathering mandates and restrictions issued by the government in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, and Nevada. We’ve had an absolutely amazing run this Winter and the last thing we want is for it to stop now. Our sincerest apologies to everyone who had plans to see us during this run. We want to thank those of you who had the opportunity to come out and support us on this tour!

The Sheridan Arts Foundation will update the public as we have more information about future events at the Sheridan Opera House. The health and safety of our patrons remains our number one priority.

The Sheridan Arts Foundation was founded in 1991 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization to preserve the historic Sheridan Opera House as an arts and cultural resource for the Telluride community, to bring quality arts and cultural events to Telluride and to provide local and national youth with access and exposure to the arts through education. The Sheridan Arts Foundation is sponsored in part by grants from the CCAASE and Colorado Creative Industries.
