There are basically only two types of seating at the Red Rocks, Reserved Seating and General Admission. A Reserved seat guarantees you a seat with an exact seat and row number. This is a huge plus for popular concerts when you want to ensure yourself a decent seat but aren't crazy about standing in the GA line hours before the gates open. Those holding a Reserved Seat ticket also have the luxury of keeping their spot should they choose to stroll the grounds or head towards the concession stands between bands.
For the best seats, look for the lowest row. The closer to the stage the better. The lower rows tend to be more expensive but the VIP's and die-hard fans will settle for nothing less.
The General Admission area varies from show to show. In some cases there is a General Admission Area in front of the Main Reserved Section (with the exception of the first 2 reserved rows). For other shows, the General Admission seats are removed altogether. Please refer to the row number for exact seat locations and proximity to the stage.
*Tip - All seating at the Red Rocks is bench-style with no seat backs or cushions. If you plan on sitting much during the show it is recommended that you bring in a seat cushion or small pillow.
Red Rocks Amphitheater - Beauty Like No Other
The Red Rocks Amphitheatre is located in the Rocky Mountain Foothills, fifteen minutes west of Denver. It is owned by the city and county of Denver.
Red Rocks is a stunning venue, a true gift of nature to music lovers around the world. Wear comfortable shoes, because after parking you will do some considerable walking to get to the entrance, as well as the trek to where you want to be for the show once inside the venue. You know you are in for a work-out when at the bottom of the venue before you make your way up, there is a sign that tells you how many calories you will burn walking to the top!
The work-out is well worth it, because once the show starts the acoustics at Red Rocks are utterly phenomenal. Try to plant yourself around the soundboard where the effect will be felt and heard at its peak. Musicians have been playing here since the turn of the century for a reason. With its combination of perfect sound and the beauty of the surroundings, you will feel like you have finally found Utopia when at a show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Independent reviews at Epinions.com called it "natures finest stage", "almost heaven", and "the most beautiful place that I know of to see a concert". If you get a chance to head out there this summer, we highly recommend it!
