Red Rocks Amphitheatre

1969 - Red Rocks

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure in Red Rocks near Morrison, Colorado (west of Denver), where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre.  There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,450 people in between. The amphitheatre is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, Colorado.

Upon the full construction of the amphitheater to its present form by the Civilian Conservation Corps, the venue was formally dedicated on June 15, 1941. It has held regular concert seasons every year since 1947.
