Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Map & Directions 18300 W. Alameda Parkway
Morrison, CO 80465


Westword's Description

The geologically formed natural amphitheater at Red Rocks comprises monolithic red sandstone formations that provide ideal acoustics for outdoor performances each summer. Since opening in 1941, the legendary venue ― the only one of its kind in the world ― has hosted countless national and international acts, from the Beatles to the Police to U2, which filmed and recorded Under a Blood Red Sky here. While concerts are the main draw at Red Rocks in the summer, the venue is open to visitors most days of the year, as is the Ship Rock Grille, located in the Visitor Center at the top of the amphitheater.

Merchant's Description

As one of the most influential promoters in the music industry, Barry booked hundreds of shows at Red Rocks, helping to turn the venue into an icon in the music world. Barry’s appreciation for the venue’s natural beauty, and for Colorado’s fans, will always be remembered.

    Much of today's Red Rocks Amphitheatre was carved out by the Civilian Conservation Corps as part of Roosevelt's New Deal.

    Red Rocks is absolutely the most beautiful venue in the world. RR is run by the City and County of Denver, CO by some of the nicest people! For concert & event info: http://www.redrocksonline.com

    This legendary, acoustically perfect summer concert venue is surrounded by towering red sandstone monoliths and Denver views. Trails take bikers and hikers through past striking rock formations.

    Can't find a musical show you want to see? Try Film on the Rocks. Red Rocks chooses to play mostly cult-status movies on select dates throughout the summer.
