If you are the sort of person who is always looking for adventures and travel destinations to add to their "wish list," one place for you to consider adding is the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Red Rocks Park (just west of Denver, Colorado) - and if you are not the kind of person who is always adding destinations to your "wish list," you should become this sort of person and then add the Red Rocks Amphitheatre to your list!
The Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a natural rock formation that was turned into an official amphitheatre in 1941, but it was far earlier than this - in the early 1900s - that a man named John Brisben Walker recognized that the natural acoustics of the area would make it a tremendous venue for music, and it was not long after this that he constructed a temporary platform and started to produce concerts. The Red Rocks Amphitheatre has come a long way since those makeshift concerts of the early 1900s, as it now has seating to accommodate nearly 10,000 people, and as it is packed each summer with acts from all across the country - and in fact, from all around the world - offering those who attend the opportunity to not only enjoy great music, but to enjoy breathtaking surroundings as well. The Red Rocks Amphitheatre has been home to a number of monumental concerts over the years, as it hosted The Beatles in 1964 and was the site used for the now famous "Under A Blood Red Sky" concert video from U2, and as it was a concert (and a corresponding CD of the concert) at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 1995 that helped to catapult Dave Matthews Band to the level of success they have since enjoyed. "Pollstar" magazine named the Red Rocks Amphitheatre the best small outdoor venue eleven consecutive years, and finally renamed this award the Red Rocks Award, removing Red Rocks from the running. A trip to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre is truly a treat, and it is a concert adventure you will probably never forget!
