Red Rocks is pretty special, and it’s a place that has stuck in my mind. You can visit during the day when there isn’t a show going on, and it’s great for a hike or a picnic. If you don’t have tickets to see a show here, it’s still worth visiting. The monumental amphitheater is literally carved into the mountain, and it feels like something from Ancient Rome. It’s a really cool place to enjoy the sun and the views, and humanity is very lucky that it has survived as an arts venue and hasn’t been turned into an infrastructure project.
“An Awesome Outdoor Concert Venue!”
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure in Red Rocks Park near Morrison, Colorado (west of Denver), where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9450 people in between.
If you are coming to the Denver/Boulder area you have to find a way to stop here. There are always tons of events going on, like Monday night summer movie series, concerts, and other kinds of shows. It's absolutely gorgeous, and the sound quality is killer. The view isn't so bad either :)
I've only visited during the day but was still speechless because of how beautiful this place is. I'd love to see a concert here someday! There's a great little restaurant where you can grab some elk burgers and stroll through the hall of famous musicians who've played at Red Rocks.
simply amazing! should be on everyone's bucket list.
What is not to like about this place?!
Its freaking beautiful and you can do so many things here. You can hike, go catch some awesome shows, they even have yoga here at times, awesome events, or just go out explore..and I'm pretty sure theres alot more to do!
I simply visited here to wander around and take some nice pictures :)
I will be next time for sure!!!!!
Must see! We stopped in the morning to hike around and see the park. It is amazing. We then went back that night for the Sam Smith concert. We expected long delays getting in and out but everything went smooth and the event staff did a great job. Our daughters had a great time.
Wow! This was awesome! The husband and I wished we had more time to explore. Truly just amazing! We went during the day and got to hear a bit of the sound check for that night's concert. I'm sure we will eventually catch a show here.
Now this is natural beauty at its finest! Who would've known that such place can be a huge amphitheater. I've paid this park a good number of visits already; with friends, with family and with a loved one. No matter what show was on, it didn't disappoint. The place in itself was already a stunner. What more if you added a dash of entertainers there? You'll definitely experience one of the best concerts that you've ever been to!
Finally got to experience Red Rocks and it was better than I ever imagined. The show was amazing, and the scenery and view is second to none. Also, it is equipped with some of the nicest facilities I've ever experienced for a concert venue. Walking to the restroom is like walking through a museum. I can't wait to go back.
Stop here if you can! It is beautiful and peaceful.
I've never seen a bad show here. Outstanding environment and acoustics.
