Citizen Cope aka Clarence Greenwood is an American songwriter / producer. He has released seven studio LP’s that have garnered him a loyal following despite never being fully embraced by mainstream media and commercial radio. Describing his music is difficult, he’s been inspired by artists such as John Lennon and Stevie Wonder to Bob Marley and Outkast. Citizen Cope’s compositions have been recorded by Carlos Santana, Dido and Richie Havens. In 20 years, of touring, he has bum a devout following, performing at sold out theaters and ballrooms across the country. Over time, Cope’s music has become the soundtrack to the lives of those who, have embraced it and he continues to inspire audiences through what can only be described as deep personal connection.

  14. Arianne K. Belt on March 17, 2022 at 4:41 pm

    I would love to go!!!! The last time he toured, I had to gift my tickets to a friend, since I was moving back home to Oregon at the time he was passing through Colorado (6ish yrs ago)….I really would love to make it to this show, in memorium to a friend of mine (he shared CC’s music with me) and has since passed away. So this would be more than a concert to me, but a tribute to mi amigo: Gabriel~These feelings won’t go away….Always with us.

  15. Aimee on March 17, 2022 at 5:01 pm

    I need some sweet piano tunes get my boyfriend in the sexy mood that night.

  16. Judy W. on March 18, 2022 at 10:01 pm

    I’d love to see him, especially since he was inspired by my favorites, John Lennon, Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley. I need to get out of the house!

  20. Jenna Eff on March 22, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    I’ve grown up listening and loving citizen cope. I really couldn’t think of a better way to start this journey back to semi-normalcy

  21. Steph on March 23, 2022 at 2:19 pm

  24. TIM FOSTER on March 29, 2022 at 1:26 pm

    I would love to see Citizen Cope in concert; I love their vibe. If I were to win tickets…I could “Cope”!

  25. Brittany on March 30, 2022 at 10:54 am

    Citizen Cope provided the soundtracks of my summers in the early 2000s! I have had multiple opportunities to see Clarence perform in the 20 years since, but they have never come to fruition… To be back at the Crystal Ballroom, dancing around the bouncy floorboards to the tunes of Citizen Cope would be a dream come true <3

  26. DJ Griffith on March 31, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    His entire music collection has played out in my life over the past two years.

  27. Madeline Nico on March 31, 2022 at 2:13 pm

    Have loved Citizen Cope forever… would be a BLAST!

  28. Maggie on March 31, 2022 at 3:11 pm

  29. MJ on April 5, 2022 at 12:47 pm

    Haven’t made it out to see live music in WAY too long. I’m ready to get back out there!!!!

  30. Darlene Muller on April 5, 2022 at 1:08 pm

    I’d love to be able to afford taking my Mama to this show…and creating an experience of music together. We love the blues…and this would be a new artist for both of us. Thank you…

  31. Maggie on April 5, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Together we could go where they play citizen cope, together we could fly where there’s time for you and I. Together we could walk to to concert, stand with the families, move to the sound of Clarence Greenwood. One lovely day one lovely day.

  32. Amanda Davis on April 6, 2022 at 8:47 am

    This sounds so fun! I’ve always been a huge fan.

  33. Steven fenwick on April 7, 2022 at 3:05 pm

    His songs got me through some difficult times and remind me that everything in life shall eventually pass.

  36. Aimee on April 7, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    That voice, with the piano and the hair…the man is a gem.

  37. Jenna Frost on April 10, 2022 at 8:22 am

    I’ve been listening to citizen cope for over a decade now. They’re still as fresh as the first day I’ve heard them. Being able to feel the energy seeing them live would be extremely healing.

  38. Lena Bainbridge on April 17, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    I’d love to win tickets because I’m a big fan and would love to share this music with my boyfriend

  39. Jeremy Bergmark on April 19, 2022 at 1:02 pm
