Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Red Rocks Amphitheatre has earned world-wide fame due to its spectacular acoustics. Artists strive to play there while audiences vie to watch them perform there; its legendary status draws audiences of all sorts to experience music at its peak performance level – recent acts include U2, the Grateful Dead, Mumford and Sons and many others! The legendary stage has hosted some incredible performers like these over time!

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a National Historic Landmark known for both its remarkable natural beauty and remarkable human-made structures. The amphitheater is surrounded by two giant rocks known as Ship Rock and Creation Rock that have over time created slopes, tilts, cracks and slopes in its surroundings; their unique sandstone formations were said to have been formed from freeze-thaw cycles or by wind. These natural wonders also contribute to amazing acoustics at Red Rocks that attract music enthusiasts from far beyond its borders!

From Ship Rock to disc-shaped “Stage Rock”, unique formations offer breathtaking backdrops for any performance. Sandstone monoliths forming an amphitheater also help amplify sound quality at concert venues so any act will sound incredible!

Red Rocks’s legendary acoustics have given rise to many celebrated live albums and performances being recorded there, including U2’s legendary 1983 performance featured on their live album ‘U2 Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky’. Not just for concerts anymore – movie screenings, yoga classes and community events all use Red Rocks! Additionally, its Visitor Center boasts walls lined with artist names who have ever performed there; making a visit a must!

Traveling to and from this venue at its altitude of 6,450 feet above sea level may prove challenging, so wear comfortable shoes and stay hydrated to maximize comfort during your journey. Although concertgoers frequently flock to this site, its scenic beauty and year-round attractions such as hiking trails, trading posts and the Colorado Music Hall of Fame make it worthwhile visiting even during non-concert events.

Visit Red Rocks during the day for optimal crowd avoidance and early entry for shows. For a full list of concerts at this venue, visit its website; there’s something going on from spring through fall featuring big name acts. Check out this year’s lineup to see who’s playing, and don’t worry if your favorite band sells out the venue; many after parties feature performances by many of the same artists who were performing at the main event. I have personally attended several after parties and thoroughly enjoyed them as an opportunity to experience different artists for less money. These parties provide an ideal solution for anyone unable to attend a show at one of Colorado’s renowned venues but who still wants the excitement and energy associated with such shows.
