Foreigner and Styx with special guest Kansas
Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Morrison, CO

Kansas a band 35 years in the making, and what seemed to be a good start to a great evening, instead I saw a bunch of middle-aged guys all seeming to suffer from an ex-alcoholics' lack of energy run through an uninspiring set.

It was such a shame that they opened for Foreigner and Styx.

When Styx came on I was feeling somewhat lackluster "Influence and Innovation" Styx didn't show it, Foreigner, Styx and Kansas. Don't put them in the same bag ever again. They may have had many hits, had a lot of good songs, but that doesn't matter. Musical talent doesn't even matter. The only thing that matters with the hall is "Influence and Innovation", and Styx didn't do anything new, nor did they influence anyone. They won't get in; I??m a sorry Styx fan.

Foreigner Which is why I can't understand the popularity of the recent 'dinotour' trend of ancient rockers dusting off their decades old hits and walking through them for the thousandth time, AND PEOPLE PAYING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS EACH TO SEE THEM, the lead singer was no more than a Mick Jaeger copy resurrected from the 60's but a very poor copy. Foreigner's new songs failed to even raise a toe tap.

Over all this was one of the worst Rock Concerts I had attended in decades

Sadly disappointed

Red Rocks is a legendary outdoor amphitheater that has hosted some of the best concerts ever! The set-up is amazing and is like no other.

Concerts are generally pretty expensive, but the Amphitheater is open to the public on weekdays. They have a museum and a restaurant and you can see all the concerts they've ever hosted. The most memorable and famous concert here was U2's Blood Under The Red Sky concert is 1983.

My favorite annual concert here is Reggae on the Rocks. In the past few years, they've had great artists like Burning Spear, Morgan Heritage, Bunny Wailer, and several of the Marley's including Stephen, Kymani, and Ziggy.

This place is beautiful and concerts sound great. The show will go on rain or shine, so ALWAYS bring a rain poncho if the sky is cloudy, even if it doesn't look like rain. We all know that evening showers in the summertime are the norm rather than the exception in the foothills. If you get unexpectedly rained on, red rocks sells cheapie ponchos for $5 at the stand where they sell concert tee shirts. If it's dry, you may want to bring a blanket or stadium seat cushion to sit on. They have basic stadium food for dinner such as pizza, hotdogs, nachos, etc. Beer ranges about $6 to $8 a cup. Bathrooms were clean and had real flush toilets. If you're in the upper half of the stadium, there are "real" bathrooms in the visitor center up at the top, with no wait time even for the women. All in all, a great experience even in spite of the frequent rain showers.

The visitors center is a must see! Great atmosphere.

Try Gray Line's Mountain Parks Tour out of Denver hotels or Cherry Creek Mall. A good way to see local points of interest including Red Rocks.

Pros: In expensive, Great parking, great bands

Cons: crowded

Everyone who comes to visit me in Denver is treated to a visit to Red Rocks and most are left speachless. Even if you don't go for a concert, there are breathtaking views of Denver and the foothills to be enjoyed.

Pros: Views of the city, Accoustics

Cons: Can be expensive, The hike

.

What a fabulous place IF the weather is good, and the band is psyched.
Have found the sound a bit too low on one recent occasion (Lyle Lovett and his Large band). Good tailgating potential in the parking lot, with the back-up band's sound in the background.
It's easy to occasionally lose the music when one takes in one's surroundings.

Pros: Scenery/ambiance, Location close to Den, Uniqueness

Cons: benches, Best seats not reserv, The schlep

In a league of its own, courtesy of Mother Nature. The ambience fits the true definition of awesome, and performers love to play here, so the music seems to have a more special quality, too.

Red Rocks is an amazing venue. After just a short drive West of Denver, a magical experience awaits you nestled in between the giant natural red rock formations. As the sun goes down, the stars come out to play...literally. Some of my favorite Red Rocks concerts have been Chris Isaak, Ben Harper, Reggae on the Rocks and KISS, just to name a few. No matter if you are attending a venue or simply stopping by for a hike, Red Rocks is truly an experience promising to provide everlasting memories.

Pros: Ambience, Sound, Staging

Cons: Uncomfortable Seating, Walking up the hill!, Dark stairs & paths

How can ANYONE not enjoy the Red Rocks experience? The acoustics are outstanding--yes I have sat up close & in the back. Even when it rains (we all know that it rains most shows!) it just adds to the experience. I would rather see a band @ Red Rocks than any other venue in the metro area.
