Red Rocks Amphitheatre

The 10,000 seat music venue known as “Red Rocks”, tucked between the majestic rocky cliffs of Red Rocks Park, is absolutely breathtaking and belongs on every music lover’s bucket list.

Although it was first used as a music venue in 1906, Red Rocks’ history goes much deeper: the Ute tribe once roamed the lands and dinosaur tracks have been found nearby dating back 160 million years. It quickly became a global favorite for concert tours and has hosted legendary acts such as Mary Garden (1911), The Beatles (1964), Jimi Hendrix (1968), The Blues Brothers (1980), U2 (1983) and many, many more. Red Rocks has been owned and operated by the City of Denver since 1927, when it purchased the land from the founder of Cosmopolitan Magazine.
