Rainbow Kitten Surprise will play at Outlaw Field in Boise, ID


If you don’t follow current music closely, you might be taken aback or even surprised by the popularity of Rainbow Kitten Surprise.

Here’s everything you need to know: The Nashville Quintet is definitely big enough to headline a 4,000-seat outdoor venue at the Idaho Botanical Garden.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise – RKS for short – will perform at Outlaw Field on Friday, July 15, with the opening act from Houndmouth.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, February 18 on Ticketmaster.com for $42.50 standard general admission, $37.50 for Garden Members and $84 for Suite. There’s also a pre-sale for Garden members that starts at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 15.

Formed in 2013 in Boone, North Carolina, the indie-rock band – often described as “gender defying” – have been in tears lately. The same week Rainbow Kitten Surprise plays in Boise, the band will headline July 11-12 at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. Both nights sold out “within minutes of going on sale,” according to a press release.

“The band has a long history of sold-out dates,” the statement added, “with their 2019 North American ‘How To: Friend, Love, Freefall’ tour featuring 50 sold-out shows, six venue upgrades, three second nights added and over 80,000 tickets sold.This tour also included a show at Red Rocks, which sold out in less than a week.

When Rainbow Kitten Surprise traveled to Boise in 2018, it performed at the 999-capacity Knitting Factory Concert House.

Rainbow Kitten Surprise is the fifth concert revealed for 2022 at Outlaw Field in Boise. Also on the program: Ween on June 28, The Avett Brothers on July 12, Khruangbin on July 13 and The Head and the Heart on August 9.
