Red Rocks reopens and music fans are asking questions
With the Red Rocks Easter service going virtual again this year, live music is definitely making a comeback at the legendary venue – which will celebrate its 80th anniversary in June.
End of April, Red Rocks will host concerts again – although at 2,500 seats, less than a third the size of the outdoor amphitheater.
The return of concerts to Red Rocks was good news, but in their comments on the Westword Facebook post, music fans are sharing questions about how things will work, including health issues, what happens to tickets for postponed shows that have sold out at a much larger capacity, and how much the costs tickets will be high this year.
Big city, lots of music fans, so few seats.
Elite playgrounds are starting to appear.
I would definitely go. Wear a mask and watch some awesome live music. I hate going to Red Rocks when it’s packed. I always feel like I have the reserved seat next to a rocking drunkard blocking my view. Red Rocks as a small venue: LOVE IT.
I’ll be there one day, it’s just amazing !!
I don’t know how the 2,500 people are going to work.
Capacity 2500 people = 2500 $ tix ????
I tried to get tix for Bob Moses in August, $ 880 for two tix. No thanks.
25% capacity in an outdoor location looks solid if other sanitation measures are in place.
Please more people crowded into a grocery store, this place is outside. I’d rather be at Red Rocks than some of those grocery stores. Let’s be real already.
They should open to full capacity, it’s outside ….
And then there’s this from Holly:
For 2020 shows that are still rescheduled for a 2021 date, where tickets have already been sold and not refunded due to a new date, how will the new capacity be handled? How will it be decided which ticket holders will actually be able to attend?
We’re checking that out, Holly. In the meantime, what do you think of the reopening of Red Rocks? Will you be there this summer?
