This intimate venue has played host to the likes of everyone from Imagine Dragons to Daughtry, to Gwar, to Mac Miller, to Macklemore, and the list goes on and on.  The Black Sheep has always been a special place. This space is an important thread in the fabric of Colorado Springs and we are proud to be able to do what we do here.  Being voted “Best Live Music Venue” in Colorado Springs for the past 15 years. I think we’re doing something right.


As official local health guidelines evolve regarding COVID-19 safety protocols, we may adjust mitigation procedures.

As of September 1st, 2021, in order to protect our employees, musicians, customers and to join forces with our live music community across the nation, we will require attendees to provide a negative covid test taken within 72 hours of the concert or proof of full vaccination.

Are masks required? We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE everyone to wear masks.

Are refunds available? If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 72 hours of the show, then yes, refunds are available. Refunds will be available for shows until OCTOBER 1ST, 2021. If you are attending a show in September, refunds are given up to 3 days before the show. ALL SALES ARE FINAL ON OCTOBER 1ST.
To request a refund, please send an email to blacksheep@blacksheeprocks.com with your confirmation number. If you purchased a physical ticket from the box office, you can get a refund any night we are open for a show until October 1st.

What if I forget my proof of negative test or proof of vaccine? You won’t get in. So don’t forget.

What if I have a medical condition or religious belief that exempts me from getting vaccinated? You will be required to provide a negative Covid-19 test result, taken within 72 hours of the concert.

What about attendees under the age of 12? Since the vaccine has not been approved for use on kids under 12, a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of the concert will be required.
