Last week I had the pleasure to visit on of the most amazing venues I have ever even seen; Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, Colorado.
Red Rocks Park is not just a beautiful place to see a concert; around you are 868 acres of deer, dinosaurs, pines and prairie, geological wonders and spectacular vistas. At 6,450 feet above sea level, Red Rocks Park is a unique transitional zone where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. The diverse environment allows visitors to see plants, birds and animals of both regions. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a geological phenomenon – the only naturally occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world. From Sting and The Beatles, to opera stars and U2, every artist aspires to play on this magical, spiritual and emotional stage.
Red Rocks offers a variety of recreation options from guided tours, hiking, biking, shopping, dining and a summer concert series. The park opened its doors on June 15th 1941 and has a seating capacity of 9450 persons.
When I first arrived I did not know what to expect, but I was completely blown away. The amphitheater is so majestic that it just takes your breath away when you walk in. I went to see a concert of the Swedish DJ Avicii and the acoustics in there are so overwhelming that if you could not see the stage you would not know where the sound came from, it is all around you. Another feature that I like is that along the sides of the seating area they have small private stands that local vendors can rent to sell drinks, snacks and souvenirs. I can really recommend anyone in the state of Colorado to visit Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater; it will be an experience like no other.
