Red Rocks Amphitheatre : The Best of Red Rocks 2020

Red Rocks Amphitheatre is known as one of the best live music venues on the planet, and for good reason.

Red Rocks sits on the foothills of the Rockies in Morrison, Colorado.  The stage is built into the natural rock formations that create an amazing amphitheatre like no other.  The sound here is amazing and the air itself is electric at Red Rocks.  Artists dream their whole lives of gracing this legendary stage, and it is no surprise that everyone brings their A+ game when they perform at Red Rocks. 

The calendar of music at Red Rocks seems to get better and better every year.  The 2020 Red Rocks Calendar is no exception.  Up and coming artists, yearly favorites and legendary rock icons will all grace the Red Rocks stage in 2020.
