I had a small window of about four days while in CO and visiting Red Rocks was high on my list. The amphitheater itself is worth a visit even without going for a concert. Climbing up the stairs and catching an eye-full of the incredible rock formations was amazing, but it paled in comparison to once the show started and... More

This was such an unforgettable experience. I went to see The Head and The Heart and there was not one bad seat in the whole place. I think all the shows there must turn into spiritual experiences. On clear nights you just look up and there are all the beautiful stars enjoying the show with you. People seem extra friendly... More

LOVED Red Rocks, my friends and I were impressed. I've been to concerts and music festivals around the world including all over Europe, Australia, Asia and Western USA...Red Rocks was the best venue I've been to so far. Definitely want to go back there next year!

This was a bucket list item for us and the good news is we crossed it off and the bad news is we crossed it off. We will just have to go back again.......and again.....and again.....you get the point! Can't wait to experience this again.

You can no longer take your family to a concert at this venue. Went to see a folk music concert with my 9 year old son who loves the Wood Brothers. The venue is breathtaking. The restaurant was wonderful but we forgot about one thing. Colorado has legalized pot. Of the 5000 people in attendance, 4950 were lighting up. There... More

Perfect weather, perfect acoustics and the perfect band- Train. Our first time to Red Rocks and we'll be back. The hike up from the lower south parking lot was definitely a challenge and I was glad I wore sturdy walking shoes. I wish the concessions had some more interesting food, but we loved the concert.

Park on the street if possible, makes for a quick exit. If you have reserved tickets show up right before the show to park at the back of the lot, which allows you to get out quickly. Don't bring a hard plastic ice chest, they will not let you in. We saw many who arrived early to tailgate in the... More

Was so disappointed that the day we got there they were closing early for a concert later that night. At least got to take some great photos of the area. Really a beautiful place, but make sure you arrive early in the morning like 8:30-9am to get in and get table at the restaurant for lunch. Check the schedule for... More

There's something about being outdoors watching your favorite band perform in place that is truly unique and magnificent! With the massive rock formations forming a natural amphitheater, the music comes alive to provide a once in a lifetime kind of moment! I have been to 3 different concerts and have had wonderful experiences at the concerts. With that being said,... More
