Observe a naturally formed, open-air amphitheater used as a stage for concerts and performances at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. Enjoy the acoustics with clear and all-enveloping sound quality, the feeling enhanced by the natural red rock scenery surrounding you. Benches carved into the rocks provide seating for up to 9,500 people, with enough room between the rows to walk and dance. Entrance to the amphitheater is free, as is a visit to the Colorado Music Hall of Fame museum on the top level. You can also hike on trails through the park itself, which locals use as a workout place.

  • I went there with a group of friends and the view was amazing. We decided to do some hiking and it was totally worth it. It didn't take us long to see the whole thing but took some rad pictures and ha...  more »
  • We came here to see the red rocks and hike. The staff recommend the Trading Post Trail as the best and most beautiful. The sign says length is 1.4 miles - that is not accurate. We tracked the distance...  more »

  • Visiting the Red Rocks Amphitheater backstage was an amazing experience. From the moment you enter you see these beautiful red rocks towering from the grounds. There is a split in the road when you drive in to go either to the national park or the amphitheater. Once we got there I had to walk up every step as well as take a photo from backstage. I highly recommend anyone visiting and I hope my back for a concert soon.
  • Once a more low key and local only type love, however, as a native... if you are new to colorado or just have not seen a show here... you need to make the plans ASAP. The views. The people. The energy. The acoustics. The natural beauty!!!!! Hands down... no matter what show you see here.. you will love it without question!!! Treat yourself!!!! No place like it in the WORLD compares. Trust.
  • This has some of the most beautiful views I've ever seen. It also has a some great hiking near the venue. I've never seen a show here, but the stage is amazing, and it has to be a great place to see a show. This amphitheatre is worth visiting any time of the year, and not just when there's a concert.
  • First get ready for a hike.....wear proper shoes. Although it's a hike to get into it is totally worth the view. We went to see Sam Hunt and we were not disappointed. Great views,sound,and facilities.
  • Hands down the best place in the country to see a concert! There is simply nothing like this experience. The acoustics are amazing and most artists sound better than their studio recordings. I have been lucky enough to see 20+ concerts in this venue. Must experience during your lifetime!
