This is a must do if you are visiting the Denver area. The venue may be the best in the country with it's incredible view of the city, the mountains and overall natural "architecture." Be sure to take the drive up to the top so you don't have to climb all the stairs from the lower visitor center. Perfect day... More

There was no concert the day we went. We just went to see the site. Beautiful place built right between two massive sand stones. The acoustics in the place was astounding. You could hear people talking on stage from the top of the theater. I bet with a good weather day this would be a great venue to see big... More

Although Red Rocks is a bit of a drive from Denver, it is totally worth a visit. I didn't attend a concert there but I can see why some bands tout it as the coolest place to play at. An amphitheater is built into the structure of the Red Rocks formation, which is open to the public on non-concert days.... More

If you have a chance to see a show at Red Rocks, go! The natural beauty of the venue is complemented by great acoustics and an overall concert experience you are not likely to forget. I'm not very tall and appreciated the wide terraced seating that allowed an unobstructed view of the stage. One note: a lot of walking is... More

it is not allowed to smoke in the amphitheater, but the crowd control is minimal seats @ 9900 and @ 4000 of those are smoking pot and blowing it in your face for 4+ hours of the concert I would make the following 2 suggestions : 1. have performers ask folks to only smoke in designated areas and respect the...

Outdoor venue in a naturally formed setting. Saw the Avett Bros. and had a great time despite the thunder storm that poured down at one point. People were mostly friendly except for those who waited in line for hours and kept trying to move down into better seating as others got up to take a respite from the rain. Still,... More

Red Rocks is a beautiful venue. The scenery is breathtaking. One simply cannot adequately express the uniqueness and natural splendor of this place. The one thing I had never heard anyone mention, though, was the climb from the parking lot to the seating area. Oh my goodness! You, of course, drive up and up and up. That we expected. But... More

A awesome place to go on a short (or long) hike through Red Rock Canyon- beautiful views! Earlier the better, it gets HOT by 10:00 a.m.....We took a 2 hour hike and can't wait to go back! They also have Tuesday Night Movie Night at the amphitheater.
