We obviously all love music. There is nothing better, well to me anyway. From the car to at home or work, we can enjoy music almost anywhere these days, which makes us very fortunate. However, sometimes watching live concerts on YouTube gets old and we want to be front and center for our favorite artists.
That is when concert venues come into play. The music is still going to be good no matter the location. But, when the concert is in a prime location, the atmosphere and music can combine to deliver a once in a lifetime experience that you will not soon forget. There are a lot of beautiful venues all over the world. From dome-shaped buildings and clubs, to outdoor venues, there are all types of place that host concerts and festivals.

One in particular that stands out is Red Rocks Amphitheater located in Morrison, Colorado which is near Denver. Imagine, your favorite musician struts onto the stage that is nestled in a gorgeous rock formation as the sun sets on a stunning Colorado scenery. Red Rocks is an open-air amphitheater that opened way back in 1941! It seats well over 9,000 people and is located in the heart of Red Rocks Park.

This venue is a favorite for many performers and has been home to many great experiences over the years. In fact, one of the first rock shows at Red Rocks featured none other than the Beatles in 1964. Also, Jimi Hendrix made an appearance in 1968 with bands Vanilla Fudge and Soft Machine. Red Rocks is also known as a popular recording site because of the unique setting and acoustics of the amphitheater.

This has become a go to venue for fans and musicians alike for many years. In fact, as of 2016 “there has been almost 2,700 shows at the venue. Bands from Umphrey’s McGee and String Incident to Gov’t Mule and Joe Bonamassa and a lot in between have played Red Rocks for many years!
