Red Rocks Amphitheatre (often known simply as Red Rocks) is a 9,545-capacity venue in Morrison, Colorado. The open-air structure is surrounded by large and striking outcrops of rock that are a reddish, russet hue – giving the venue its name. The land that the venue occupies was purchased by the City of Denver in 1927, with construction beginning in 1936 and the venue opening to the public in 1941. In 2015, the Colorado Music Hall of Fame opened in the Trading Post at Red Rocks.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre was named the top-grossing and most-attended concert venue of any size, anywhere in the world in 2021. The venue is so popular that in 1999, after it had been awarded the annual honor of best small outdoor venue by Pollstar magazine for the eleventh time, the magazine changed the name of the award to the Red Rocks Award and removed Red Rocks from the running.

Several artists have released audio and video recordings of their performances there, including U2, Dave Matthews Band, The Samples, Incubus, The Moody Blues, John Tesh, Ricky Lee Jones, Rob Thomas, String Cheese Incident, and Stevie Nicks, among many others. The state has also played host to many other legendary performances, including The Beatles, The Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix.

RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATRE RULES

Guests are asked to be respectful of everyone around and to refrain from using offensive language, obscene gestures, throwing objects, fighting, or inappropriate contact with other guests. The smoking of cigarettes and e-cigarettes is only permitted within designated areas and the use of marijuana products is strictly prohibited. If deemed necessary by event staff, impaired or intoxicated guests or underage drinkers will be removed from the venue promptly and safely. Guests are asked to only occupy their designated seat – seat saving is not allowed. Guests must not climb the rocks and anyone who does not comply may be subject to arrest and prosecution. Glass is strictly prohibited in and around the venue. Private vending is not allowed.

RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATRE SEATING CHART

Seating at Red Rocks consists of bleachers that are often separated into General Admission and Reserved seating, depending on the show. For guests with General Admission tickets, it is recommended to arrive early to find the best spot. It is common for fans to bring blankets and/or cushions with them to ensure their own comfort throughout the show. Wheelchair users and companions are provided with ADA-accessible seating.

Parking information

It is recommended for driving guests to arrive early to avoid hiking from long-distance parking lots. Guests are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes, as routes from parking lots to the gates may be partially dirt, uphill and sometimes lengthy in distance – the Jurassic overflow parking lot is one mile from the venue. However, parking lots open two hours before show doors, allowing plenty of time to park, and Traffic Control will guide you to a parking space after entering the park. 

Accessible parking is available, as well as an accessible drop-off point and an accessible shuttle bus.

Public Transit

It is strongly recommended that guests carpool or ride share to get to Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Here are specific drop-off points for ride-share services, limos, and shuttle buses.
