Altamuntons concerts sold out almost three weeks ago, marking the first time a sold-outs concert at a venue has occurred in California since the state became the first in the country to legalize cannabis.
Altamont is the third venue in California to sell out a concert in its history, following the Las Vegas and Anaheim venues and the Las Cruces, NM, venue.
Altadon’s first sold-Out concert, a concert by rapper Eminem, drew a crowd of nearly 1,000, and Altamonto will also see a sold out concert for its upcoming performance of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” in May.
The Altamons concert, which will be held on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley on Sunday, is the first sold out show for a major California venue.
“This concert is a testament to the incredible power of marijuana,” Altamundo said in a statement.
“It’s time for Californians to come together and celebrate the freedoms we hold dear.”
The Altamas first soldout concert was the first of its kind, according to Altamon.
The first was the California Cannabis Cup in 2009, a fundraiser for the University Of California-Santa Barbara’s Center for Cannabis Policy Research.
A month later, the Altamino concert sold out in just one hour.
In 2015, Altamatons first soldouts concert was held at The Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colo., where the crowd was estimated at 15,000 people.
