Concert venue

Here is the lineup of Colorado’s favorite concert hall

Last year’s live music comeback was successful in large part because it started outside.

As COVID infection rates declined in late spring and early summer, Morrison’s Red Rocks Amphitheater led the way with some of the world’s first full-scale concerts and multi-day festivals. Last month, it was named the busiest concert hall of 2021 by Billboard.

The global accolade came at the end of the venue’s 80th anniversary, which broke its own seasonal record for hosted programming, Billboard reported. The 233 paid and paid events included 177 concerts, 36 films at Denver Film’s Film on the series Rocks, and 20 yoga and fitness programs.

That’s an exponential leap from the handful of 175-person experiences, socially removed from 2020, and an encouraging sign for this concert season – even if the schedule for late summer and fall seems still a little empty.

Here is our list of confirmed shows in the 9,500-seat venue for this year, which will be updated online every week. Visit for more information on ticketing, directions and parking details.

Note: Some tour dates include multi-night races; evenings with different opening artists received their own list. Tickets for most shows are available at All events are subject to last minute postponement or cancellation.
