Red Rocks Amphitheatre Information
The Red Rocks Amphitheatre ids an outdoor music venue located in Morrison, Colorado. The amphitheatre can seat over 9,000 roaring music fans and offers a unique setting, with huge Red Rocks rising from the ground and towering over the seating areas. The Colorado countryside can be seen for the stands and on a clear night the sky millions of stars can be seen.
The amphitheatre has hosted some of the biggest tours including the likes of U2, Fleetwood Mac, The Dave Matthews Band and Moody Blues.
Geologically, the rocks surrounding the Amphitheatre are representative of the Fountain Formation. Originally the place was known as the “Garden of the Angels” (1870s-1906), and then as “Garden of the Titans” during the Walker years (1906–1928). The park, however, had always been known by the folk name of “Red Rocks”, which became its formal name when Denver acquired it in 1928. Make sure you keep checking back for regular updates as tours are announced throughout the year.
