Red Rocks - One of the greatest outdoor venues

Red Rocks Ampitheatre located outside of Denver has to be one of the most beautiful outdoor venues to see a concert in.

see some photos on their website:

Does anyone know when they list the events for their upcoming season?

They only have one event in June listed currently on their site.

I agree that it's a great venue. I saw David Byrne (formerly of the Talking Heads) there with a 20 piece Calypso band. It was awesome! If memory serves (it's been 11.5 years since I lived there), the schedule is usually out mid to late March.

Ooooh... The Gorge in George (WA) has impressed me every time I've been there!

chexfan, that did look cool, I really like outdoor venues. But how far is that from Seattle? about 3 hours? That would be a long drive after a show or is there lodging around there?

There is little to no lodging around the Gorge and it is 2.5-3 hours from Seattle. Makes for a long drive after a 7 hour festival but worth it because of the views. Having seen a couple of shows there and seen many more at Red Rocks, I would have to vote Red Rocks as the better venue. Don't get me wrong, the Gorge is a close second, but nothing can beat a good band on the rocks in the summer.....

I saw the Beach Boys at Red Rocks in 1982. Needless to say it was a good show.

The show I regret most that I turned down a ticket for was U2 in 1983, you know, the Sunday, Bloody Sunday video. I didn't want to go because it looked like it was going to rain. Stupid me!!!

Red Rocks is a great venue and what a sky line!!!

There are actually several places to stay that within 20-30 miles of the Gorge. Moses Lake, Wenatchee, Ellensburg.

Vantage has a few rooms/cabins, but most everyone goes there to camp.

I stand corrected. Now that I think of it, I do seem to remember hearing of places around central washington, but being in college at the time, we couldn't afford it
